Their roster is getting stronger. Their schedule is getting weaker. And over the last seven weeks of the Canadian Football League's regular season, those factors should help the San Antonio Texans solidify their position as the team best-equipped to block Baltimore's return to the Grey Cup championship game.The Texans, tied with the Birmingham Barracudas for second place in the Southern Division, play five of their final seven games at the Alamodome. Four of those seven are against Ottawa, Toronto and Shreveport -- a combined 8-29.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh made a lot of sense when he explained why he has designated Troy Smith as the starter for tonight's Game 3 of the preseason against the St. Louis Rams. Kyle Boller already has a long paper trail, and the Ravens have limited time to evaluate Smith, who played only a couple of games last year compared with Boller's 42 career starts. The logic is unassailable, but I think there's more to it than that. The Ravens have played the first two preseason games behind a makeshift offensive line that is riddled with injuries.

Frederick is in, Delmarva is in and the Bowie Baysox face a must-win situation to qualify for postseason play. If the Baysox get into the playoffs, it would mean that three of the Orioles' six minor league teams qualified. "It would make me, very, very happy if we got three teams in the playoffs, but they don't have to be in," said David Stockstill, Orioles director of minor league operations, who said at the start of the season that "stressing winning baseball and respect for the game" were goals.

Opponent: Binghamton RangersSite: Broome County (N.Y.) Veterans Memorial ArenaTime: 7:35Radio: WITH (1230 AM), WAMD (970 AM)Outlook: This is one of those all-important "four-point games," meaning competition against a division rival, where a loss is doubly damaging in the point standings. The Bandits did yeoman work last weekend, downing Hershey twice and jumping from the division cellar to within one point of second place. The Rangers won a pair of one-goal games against Prince Edward Island, however, and have opened up a solid lead in the Southern Division.

UTICA, N.Y. -- John Purves, Jeff Greenlaw and Alfie Turcotte scored consecutive goals in the last four minutes of the second period, as the Baltimore Skipjacks avenged their only loss of the season with a 5-1 American Hockey League victory over the Utica Devils last night at Utica Memorial Auditorium.The Devils had moved into sole possession of first place in the Southern Division by winning four of their last five games, including a come-from-behind, 4-3 victory in Baltimore Tuesday. But the Skipjacks took command of last night's rematch in the second period, moments after Utica rookie Jeff Christian's power-play goal had cut Baltimore's lead to 2-1.Purves poked in a rebound of Tim Taylor's wrap-around try at 16 minutes, Greenlaw scored from a sharp angle at 16:30 and Turcotte made it 5-1 with only four seconds remaining in the second period.

The Bandits have moved into a newly named division in the American Hockey League and picked up a couple of new playmates.Gone are the Southern Division and the Western Conference, and in their stead come the Mid-Atlantic Division and the Southern Conference for the Bandits.Last year's Baltimore, Binghamton, Carolina, Hershey grouping now reads Baltimore, Carolina, Hershey (formerly Cornwall), the new Kentucky Thoroughblades and the Philadelphia Phantoms (former Hershey players).Portland, Providence, Springfield and Worcester, aptly named the New England Division, join the Mid-Atlantic to make up the Southern Conference.

After the Red Wings (34-30-8) visit tonight, Carolina comes to town Friday, then the Bandits and Monarchs do it again Saturday night in Greensboro, N.C. The race for third place in the Southern Division and an assured spot in the AHL playoffs could be over by then or Carolina could be right back in it. The Monarchs hold a 5-3-2 edge over the Bandits.

To Joe Parker, it doesn't matter where you start, it's where you finish.After starting in the beginning of the season, Arundel coach Gerald Moore decided the junior forward would play better coming off the bench.Yesterday, Moore's move paid dividends for the No. 20 Wildcats (14-6), as Parker's rebound basket with 16 seconds remaining helped clinch a 54-51 Southern Division victory over No. 10 Broadneck at Arundel.Parker (game-high 19 points) grabbed the rebound of Mike Tasker's (13 points)

It was reported incorrectly in yesterday's editions of The Evening Sun that the Skipjacks would play 10 games in the Maritimes provinces this season, making two trips. The Skipjacks will make just one trip to the Maritimes, playing five games. The Evening Sun regrets the error.Skipjacks owner Tom Ebright has called the realignment of the American Hockey League "inevitable" ever since whispers came from the north that St. John's, Newfoundland, could be joining the league.Yesterday, the AHL announced that the coming season would (( feature three divisions, with inter-division rivalry and travel budget cuts as the top priorities.

It's well within the realm of possibility that the Baltimore Bandits, they of the 1-9-1 start, soon may be just one of the gang in the American Hockey League.Seemingly relegated to the role of season-long tailenders after earning just three points in their first 10 outings, the Bandits were in the practice of losing games by, for example, 6-1 and 8-3 and, on one occasion, gave an opponent 15 power-play opportunities.However, with a few adjustments in the personnel department and a break in the schedule, Baltimore has seven wins, the same as Portland, one fewer than Providence and only two behind Cornwall and Fredericton.
