The Maryland baseball team set an Atlantic Coast Conference record by stealing eight bases in its 10-3 victory over visiting Hofstra on Saturday in College Park. The Terps constantly put runners in motion with steals and hit-and-runs and took advantage of those opportunities, going 8-for-21 (.381) as a team with runners on base. David Poutier had a career-high three stolen bases and Matthew Murakami added two. The previous ACC single-game record was five stolen bases. Matt Marquis ' three-run home run in the third inning gave Maryland a 4-0 lead and the Terps never looked back.

BOSTON - Orioles closer Jim Johnson often refers to his teammates as a bunch of grinders, a group of blue-collar players who pay little attention to individual accolades and instead focus on doing the unnoticed essentials that lead to winning. Johnson uses the grinder term because it bears reference to the gritty third-liners of a hockey team (he's a die-hard New York Rangers fan), the guys who lay down hits instead of scoring goals. So when Johnson set a new Orioles single-season record with his 46th save to close out a 4-2 win over the Boston Red Sox on Friday night, he didn't get caught up in the mark.

TOKYO -- Finally, after all the debate over whether high-definition television will be a revolutionary technology for consumers and national economies, the vaunted sets went on sale this week in Japan.They cost $34,000 apiece and the special-format broadcasts for HDTV are shown for only an hour a day. But for the three big electronics companies that have begun selling the world's first high-definition sets -- Sony, Matsushita and Hitachi -- the high cost and limited programming are no cause for distress at the outset.

PARIS - There was the usual rustling in the stands on the Philippe Chatrier stadium court when Albert Costa double-faulted to go down two sets to love yesterday. But unless they were headed for a comfort break, few fans, if any, were going anywhere. Down two sets? What's the problem? Senor Lunchpail was just getting started, and the French, who have been gaping in wonderment over the stamina and grit of this Spanish warrior for the past 10 days, knew it. Before the shiny afternoon was over, Costa would for the third time in this French Open come from two sets down to claim a win and keep alive his vastly underrated chances for a second consecutive title.

When a play takes place in a hotel, it is helpful if the set includes walls. Oakland Mills High School staff and students were planning a production of Ask Any Girl in the fall, but they returned from summer vacation to find that all of their sets - built and saved over 10 years - had been discarded during a school construction project. So they turned to a group of students at Hammond High School who are good at building walls, doors, windows, stairs and other pieces that literally set the stage for school plays in Howard County.
