The Orioles' plan all along was to let Kevin Gausman loose in the second half of this season. It took some rigid discipline - limiting his innings and pitch counts earlier this year - in order to preserve him for the stretch run. It also included some unpopular roster moves as the right-hander shuttled back and forth to the minor leagues. When the Orioles needed an extra relief pitcher, Gausman usually was the player sent to manager Buck Showalter's office to be told he was being optioned.

WIMBLEDON, England - What had the potential to be an electrifying day of tennis at Wimbledon came up a few shots shy of truly memorable yesterday. Not that Lindsay Davenport and Lleyton Hewitt of Australia didn't try their best, albeit unintentionally, to push things in that direction in the fourth round. Third-seeded Hewitt, unusually, squandered two match points in the third set and needed another set to finish off Taylor Dent, 6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (7), 6-3. Top-seeded Davenport, who blew a match point in the second set by pushing a backhand just long, lost the second-set tiebreaker but rallied to defeat No. 15 Kim Clijsters of Belgium, 6-3, 6-7 (4)

Carver A&T coach Ralph Olson started the year with a simple goal for his volleyball team. He wanted seven wins. He had to revise his goals upward twice during the year, but it was the 14th win that eluded the Wildcats. That would have been a state championship. The Wildcats (13-6) battled hard, but came up short of Olson's latest goal, bowing to Allegany County's Fort Hill 25-12, 25-23, 25-12 in the Class 1A state volleyball championship game at the University of Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum.

If tennis has taught Calvert Hall's Gary Simonette one thing, it's patience. That paid off yesterday as he defeated defending No. 1 singles champion Mark Gober of McDonogh to win the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2, at the Greenspring Racquet Club in Towson. After dropping the first set, Simonette broke Gober's serve in the second game of the second set and never trailed in the set. Simonette spotted the fellow senior a 2-0 lead in the third set before rallying to claim the match with six straight games.

WASHINGTON - Andre Agassi's bid for a record sixth Legg Mason Tennis Classic crown is still alive, but only after a struggle. Agassi, the tournament's top seed who last won the championship in 1999, outlasted No. 7 seed Thomas Enqvist of Sweden, 6-7 (10-8), 7-6 (7-5), 6-3, in a quarterfinal match at the William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center in Rock Creek Park last night. Agassi, who hadn't dropped a set this week, was pushed to the limit by Enqvist, who was making his first appearance here since 1994.

New York -- Justine Henin-Hardenne will play Maria Sharapova for the U.S. Open title tonight in a match that begs to be better than the semifinal victories that got them there. What happened on Arthur Ashe Stadium court yesterday was more strange than stunning, more confounding than compelling. Jelena Jankovic came out like a lion against Henin-Hardenne and was sent home like a lamb. Australian Open and Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo, the top seed, came out like a rank qualifier against Sharapova and was sent home like ... a rank qualifier.

WASHINGTON - -In their five previous meetings, Ivo Karlovic had never managed to break Andy Roddick's vaunted serve. With the towering Croatian doing so twice Friday, their quarterfinal match proved two things: Roddick's vaunted serve isn't entirely where he would like it to be after a four-week break after Wimbledon. But the top-ranked American continues to show newfound poise on court, able to maintain his composure when points don't unfold as scripted. In both the first and second sets, Roddick broke back in short order for a 7-6 (7-4)

Bel Air brought a high-powered offense and a ton of confidence to Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum for the state Class 3A volleyball semifinals Tuesday night. Unfortunately for the Bobcats, the results were no different from last year's, when their state championship dream ended in the same round. The Bobcats (15-3) ran into an organized, experienced and well-prepared team from La Plata (17-0) in Charles County and fell, 25-16, 25-20, 25-15. The Warriors did a great job of neutralizing Bel Air's Celeste Roland (nine kills)

Rolling into Columbia's Merriweather Post Pavilion for a two-night run this past weekend, jam-rockers Phish offered few surprises on Saturday night. But the band provided two sets of blistering and succinct music, a blend of new and old, along with - for those on the lawn during the first set - buckets of rain. During the enthusiastic albeit brief first set, Phish kicked its set off with a robust rendition of the summer anthem "Kill Devil Falls," a new favorite from the band's most recent studio album, 2009's "Joy . " The set continued with cohesive versions of "Destiny Unbound," "Taste," "Halfway to the Moon" and 'Twenty Years Later" before the Vermont virtuosos treated the sold-out audience to a powerhouse version of "Maze," the high-energy improvisational vehicle.

The Orioles have spent almost four years and about $35 million waiting for Brian Roberts to get healthy, so the news that he will soon embark on an injury rehabilitation assignment - which would be prelude to a July return to the major league lineup - should evoke a range of emotions. First and foremost, it should prompt fans to appreciate just how determined Roberts has been to get back and make a contribution to the team on which he once played a central role. If you review the list of injuries he has had to overcome, you'll probably agree that the easier course would have been to go home a year ago as a very rich young man with most of a comfortable life still ahead of him. There have been times over the course of his career when Roberts has been his own worst enemy.

The performance of Baltimore's first- and second-grade pupils fell significantly in reading and math on a national standardized test, mirroring the drops on statewide assessments this year. The results show that the academic performance of even the city's youngest students has declined, in some cases by as much as 6 percentage points in a single grade and subject. While a news release sent late Friday emphasized that students are still performing above the national average in some subjects, the system acknowledged that the test scores are a "call to action.

A 17-year-old will be tried as an adult on charges that he sexually assaulted a fellow Annapolis High School student last fall in woods near the school, an Anne Arundel County judge decided Monday. Troy Traon Reid, of Annapolis, was already facing similar accusations in a suspected April attack when he was charged with the second assault in September. Judge Philip T. Caroom had ordered Reid tried as a juvenile for the earlier allegations. But, he said Monday, a second set of charges and Reid's apparent violation of conditions of his release helped him decide to leave Reid's second case in adult court.
