FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Mike Mussina knew it wouldn't last forever, but the perfectionist in him could not let go of his 18-inning Grapefruit League scoreless streak without a moment of self-rebuke.Minnesota Twins third baseman Luis Quinones brought the streak to an end with a fifth-inning home run in the Orioles' 6-5 exhibition loss yesterday at the Lee County Sports Complex. It was a wind-blown home run at that, but Mussina wasn't letting himself off that easily."It's not the runs that bother me," he said.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter's decision to pitch right-hander Miguel Gonzalez in today's series finale against Tampa Bay appears to have paid off. Gonzalez held the Rays scoreless for five innings this afternoon, yielding just three hits while recording six strikeouts and walking three batters. After the scoreless outing today, Gonzalez has allowed three earned runs over 11 innings in his past two starts. Gonzalez was scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Rays, but after it was rained out, Showalter pushed Gonzalez to today.

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- It's an indication of how things have been going for the Orioles that one scoreless inning was the big news yesterday.Scoreless innings have been tough to come by this spring, especially for relief pitchers. The fact that Lee Smith, penciled in as this season's closer, was able to get three outs without allowing a run was the goods-news part.The bad-news side of the story is that the Orioles wasted their best-pitched game of the spring, losing a 2-1, 10-inning decision to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

COLLEGE PARK - It was a test Maryland had not cared to take: Could the Terps advance in the NCAA tournament against physically intimidating Texas on a night when star forward Alyssa Thomas - playing the final home game of her career - could not muster a field goal in the first half?  But there the fourth-seeded Terps were, tied at halftime with the fifth-seeded Longhorns with Thomas having missed all five of her field-goal attempts and both of her foul shots. Aided by her "supporting cast," the Terps hung in until Thomas found her game in the second half - she finished with 16 points and 11 rebounds  -- and Maryland earned a rugged, 69-64 victory.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Right-hander Rick Sutcliffe wasn't particularly impressed with himself, but his comeback remains on schedule.Sutcliffe pitched three scoreless innings in last night's exhibition game against the Texas Rangers. It wasn't a perfect outing, but it was an improvement over his Orioles spring debut Monday."I felt like I threw a little bit better," said Sutcliffe, who gave up three hits and a pair of walks. "Everything's fine -- three innings with no runs. I could have gone more, of course, but that's the program."

It certainly was not the spot Sam Perlozzo wanted for Kurt Birkins, but with all his other options in the bullpen exhausted, the Orioles manager had no choice. So, in a scoreless game in the 12th inning, Perlozzo summoned Birkins, who had not pitched in a game since extended spring training on March 30. The Orioles lefthander was one out from getting out of the inning unscathed before surrendering a grand slam to the Detroit Tigers' Craig Monroe. Monroe ripped a 1-1 pitch that sailed through the cold air and steady rain and disappeared over the center-field wall, helping the Tigers to a 4-1 victory over the Orioles before 13,288, the second smallest crowd in Camden Yards history.

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- If the Orioles are waiting for Fernando Valenzuela to expose himself as a myth, they may need a lot of patience.What started out as a spring training curiosity has suddenly developed into a subject of intrigue. Can Valenzuela, after an absence of nearly two years, make a successful return to the big leagues?There still isn't anybody willing to make that prediction, but even those who scoffed at that notion when Valenzuela reported to camp are beginning to have second thoughts.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- In their prime, Fernando Valenzuela and Bert Blyleven were considered franchise pitchers. One was C dazzling, left-handed trickster, the other an overpowering right-hander with a wicked curveball.Both took another step on the comeback trail yesterday, but only one went forward.Valenzuela, a former Los Angeles Dodger trying to return with a team about as far removed from his original as possible, pitched three more scoreless innings for the Orioles. Blyleven, whose career has made a circuit through both leagues, is trying to make it back where he started, with the Minnesota Twins.

The first game after a big trade always seems to get magnified into something more important than it really is - as if one game can dictate the course a team travels from that point forward. So two days after trading Jeff Conine back to the Florida Marlins, the Orioles weren't looking at last night's scoreless marathon against the Oakland Athletics as a harbinger for another long September. They couldn't. To do so would be pure torture. The Orioles will score runs again. They just haven't for the past 29 innings, and they didn't again last night, as the Athletics pulled out a 2-0, 12-inning victory before 19,517 at Camden Yards.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Right-hander Bud Norris continued to put up zeros this spring and the Orioles' offense touched up one of the Boston Red Sox's top pitching prospects to pick up a 7-3 win at Ed Smith Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Norris, who is expected to begin the season in the Orioles' rotation, threw three scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and striking out four. He hasn't given up a run in his five spring innings. “I felt pretty good,” Norris said. “The main thing was I wanted to work on my fastball command, get back out there for my second start.” Norris said his back tightened up a little in the second inning, but he pitched through it and said later that it was “nothing to worry about.” With his four strikeouts Saturday, Norris now has six, and one walk, in five innings.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Making his second Grapefruit League appearance of the spring Saturday night, Kevin Gausman wore a pair of new prescription glasses in a game for the first time  - and had a formidable Red Sox lineup seeing double. Gausman retired the first seven hitters he faced on his way to three shutout innings in the Orioles' 13-2 win over the Red Sox at JetBlue Park. Gausman, 23, struck out three of the first four batters he faced, as Daniel Nava, David Ortiz and Mike Napoli all went down on split-fingered fastballs.

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Left-hander Brian Matusz pitched two scoreless innings in his first start of the exhibition season, but the Orioles suffered their first loss in three Grapefruit League games, 8-6, to the Boston Red Sox at JetBlue Stadium. Matusz allowed a one-out single to Dustin Pedroia in the first inning and a leadoff single to Xander Bogaerts in the second inning, but did not allow either runner to advance. He said that he enjoyed the opportunity to take the mound in a starting role.

It's easy to understand why the Blast might have taken the Pennsylvania Roar lightly, given its slow start Friday night. Going into the game, the Blast had beaten the Major Indoor Soccer League expansion team in their first four meetings by a combined margin of 90-7, including two rare shutouts. Maybe it was because of a 12-day layoff in between games. Or maybe it was the early start time - 7:05 p.m. instead of the typical 7:35 p.m. at Baltimore Arena - that made the Blast's offense a no-show for more than a quarter.

After a five-year hiatus, the River Hill boys soccer program is headed back to the state final four. In penalty kicks, after 100 minutes of scoreless action Tuesday night, Hawks goalie Tomas Potts came through with a pair of diving stops to help River Hill outlast Mt. Hebron, 5-4, and capture the year's 3A East region title. "I went out there thinking that it was on me. For our five seniors and our entire team that was looking at me, it was on me to make a play," said Potts, who was also in goal just four days earlier when River Hill defeated Reservoir in penalty kicks.

As the season has progressed, the No. 7 Severna Park girls soccer team's defense has taken on the identity of its senior goalkeeper, Rachel Vander Kolk. And in Thursday's playoff game at No. 2 Arundel, the Vander Kolk-led Falcons were at their unflappable best. After 100 minutes of scoreless play sent the Class 4A East Section I title game to penalty kicks, the Falcons got conversions from Abby Thomas and Murphy Atwell, and Vander Kolk made one final big save, her ninth of the game, to send Severna Park past the Wildcats with a 2-1 edge in the shootout.

It went unsaid in the Ravens' defensive huddle. The proof was on the scoreboard and in the number of times defensive players jogged back onto the field in the first half after having little more than a moment to grab a drink of water and touch base with their position coach. Joe Flacco was struggling, the running game was going nowhere and even normally-reliable kicker Justin Tucker was missing wide right. If the Ravens were going to avoid a demoralizing loss to the Cleveland Browns in their home opener, it was going to be because of the same unit that was picked apart by Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos just 10 days earlier.
