Standing in front of his locker late Thursday night, running back Bernard Pierce smiled when reminded how the Ravens struggled mightily to run the football last season. Pierce was typically grouchy after games last year, a man of few words and even fewer explanations for why the Ravens rushed for the fewest yards in franchise history. Pierce was in a much different mood at M&T Bank Stadium after the Ravens' 23-3 victory over the San Francisco 49ers to open the preseason. For at least this game, the Ravens' revamped running game was transformed into a dominant outfit as they rushed for 237 yards and a touchdown on 48 carries to average 4.9 yards per rush.

TORONTO -- Caleb Joseph's new upright stance and growing confidence have done wonders for the Orioles rookie catcher, transforming untapped potential into unexpected power. While Joseph might have never received the opportunity to be a starter in a major league pennant race had Matt Wieters not needed season-ending elbow surgery - or had Joseph not worked tirelessly in the minors to improve behind the plate - he has given the Orioles a tremendous boost with his bat in his past four starts.

TORONTO - Catcher Caleb Joseph has raised his batting average 39 points over his last 10 games. And he also has given the club an unexpected power surge recently with a home run in each of his last three games. After hitting a solo home run in the Orioles' 9-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night, Joseph said he made some recent adjustments at the plate that have helped him square up on pitches. “I've just been working on some mechanical things, and they're slowly starting to show their head in terms of results,” Joseph said.

The Maryland Institute College of Art announced Wednesday that it will launch a master's program in filmmaking and will run it out of a historic Station North theater that will be home to both MICA and the Johns Hopkins University's film programs. The master of fine arts in filmmaking program will begin in fall 2015 and be led by Patrick Wright, who co-produced the 2010 Oscar-winning short documentary, "Music by Prudence," and other films on HIV/AIDS, clergy sexual abuse, and political commentator Ann Coulter.

In his commentary, "Ray Rice is not a victim" (July 31), Jacob Simpson sets us women back to pre-women's suffrage era. I understand he is a pastor and advocate against domestic violence, that's great, and I'm sure everyone he assists is grateful for that; we need more people like him in this world. What we don't need, however, is to hear from men who claim to "care" about Ray Rice's wife because she was "a victim" of alleged domestic violence. The same men who say "you should never put your hands on a woman" are probably saying that because they feel "women" are too fragile, weak or incapable of expelling the same violent tendencies and/or actions that Mr. Rice is being accused of doing to his then-fiancee.

In theory, the West Coast offense doesn't appear to be ideal for an East Coast football team. Gary Kubiak's version, though, might be the perfect fit for the Ravens. The short, quick passes still will be a major staple of their offense, but in Kubiak's system, the running game sets up the pass. When John Elway was the Denver Broncos' quarterback, he won back-to-back Super Bowl s in 1998 and 1999 with Kubiak as the offensive coordinator. Elway expects Kubiak to also be successful in Baltimore, where he will debut as the Ravens' offensive coordinator Thursday night against the San Francisco 49ers in their preseason opener.

Perhaps it was fitting that the first leadoff home run in Nick Markakis' career would stand as the game-winner Sunday in a 1-0 pitchers' duel victory over the Seattle Mariners at Camden Yards. In his nine years with the Orioles, Markakis has been both a consistent contributor and someone who often has been overlooked while flashier players take center stage. “He is probably the epitome of consistency,” Orioles reliever Tommy Hunter said. “If you can wrap it up and put it in a bottle and give it to somebody - whatever he does on a daily basis - you'd be a rich man. He's a big-time part of this team, part of this organization and he just continues to play baseball.” A first-inning solo homer normally would go unnoticed over the course of a game, but Markakis' shot onto the right-field flag court on the sixth pitch from Seattle right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma became more crucial as the afternoon played out. It was the only run Iwakuma or Orioles starter Chris Tillman would allow in an old-fashioned pitchers' duel.

Based on the way the first five battles between the Orioles and Los Angeles Angels had played out, there was little question the season-series finale was going to possess its share of drama. So how about a scoreless tie that stretched into the 13th inning before the Angels finally cracked the Orioles' stubborn bullpen and avoided a sweep? Throw in a potential no-hitter that was thwarted by injury and you had just another ho-hum affair between two evenly matched clubs that could end up clashing again in the postseason.

I am a proud Baltimore native and have been a Ravens fan since the football team moved here in 1996. I am also a pastor and an advocate against domestic violence and rape culture. The behavior of running back Ray Rice, who was accused of knocking out his then fiancee (now wife) during an altercation in Atlantic City, has embarrassed me enough to question being a Ravens fan. The pathetic punishment from the NFL — a two game suspension — has made me question my continued support for the league.
