KANSAS CITY, MO. - There were several junctures during the 2014 regular season when catcher Caleb Joseph came up big for the Orioles, but he had to admit Sunday that he was starting to wonder if his breakthrough season would be obscured by a lengthy batting slump that had crept into the playoffs. If that was weighing on his mind when he took the field for Game 2 of the American League Championship Series, it didn't show. Joseph delivered a solid all-around performance on Saturday that included a sacrifice fly to drive in the Orioles' first run, two singles and a big, late-inning throw to cut down speedy Kansas City Royals base-stealer Jarrod Dyson at second base.

After a fantastic first half of the season, the Washington Nationals' Rafael Soriano hasn't been the same in the second. He has allowed 10 runs over his past 112/3 innings since the All-Star break. He also has blown three saves, including one Sunday. He has been scored on in three of his past four outings. Soriano still has 29 saves, and his ERA is still only 2.59 ERA, but his five blown saves are tied for fourth most in the National League. His recent rough stretch and struggles with command have raised questions for manager Matt Williams.

But after going 1-for-4 on Thursday, he is hitting just .113 with one homer and three RBIs since making his third All-Star Game appearance last month.

Navy's offense is mired in a bit of a dry spell. After scoring 32 goals in a pair of routs of Patriot League foes Holy Cross on March 1 and Lafayette on March 7, the Midshipmen (3-4 overall and 2-2 in the conference) scored just one goal in the first half of an eventual 14-9 loss to Towson on March 11 and twice in a 13-2 thumping by No. 19 Lehigh on Saturday. The sample size is just two games, which may be why coach Rick Sowell did not seem distressed about the offensive woes.

Even though the McDonogh graduate ranked No. 1 in her recruiting class and played for the No. 1 high school team in the country, she could not shake the nerves before every Terps game. She always felt there was so much more to learn playing on a Maryland team ranked No. 1 until it fell in the NCAA championship in triple overtime to North Carolina.

Considering the pedigree of their respective programs, it is no surprise that No. 2 Syracuse and No. 20 Pittsburgh have made nearly flawless transitions from the Big East to the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Orange won a national championship with freshman Baltimore product Carmelo Anthony in 2003 and have played in four Final Fours under Hall-of-Fame coach Jim Boeheim, most recently last season. The Panthers, with one of the toughest homecourts in the country, were the Big East's winningest team over the past 10 years with Jamie Dixon as their coach.
