Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold is seeing a second cervical specialist today in Baltimore for another opinion on his neck problems - a suggestion made by the first specialist, Dr. Lee Riley, whom Reimold saw in the last few days. Regardless of those findings, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Reimold, who is eligible to come off the 60-day disabled list on June 30, will not be back before the All-Star Break. The manager didn't want to say more until he had the diagnosis from the second specialist, which could come tonight.

The fastest man in baseball drives with caution. When Terrance Gore was a sophomore in high school, his mother spent about $500 on a 1980 El Camino, and her son restored it with care. He painted the car candy apple red, upgraded the engine and installed 22-inch chrome rims. “That's my baby,” Gore said. He treats his wheels with reverence. The vehicle resides under cover at his home in Georgia. No one is allowed to drive it. Gore expected to return home to his car after the minor-league season ended.

The Orioles' top position prospect, Jonathan Schoop, was scheduled to see back specialist Lee Riley at Johns Hopkins on Tuesday to receive further evaluation on a lower back strain that has landed him on the seven-day minor league disabled list. Schoop, rated the Orioles' No. 3 prospect by Baseball America, was hitting .268/.331/.386 with three homers and 18 RBIs for Triple-A Norfolk before he was placed on the DL on Thursday. It is believed that Schoop's back problems are rooted from continuing growth spurts the 21-year-old infielder has experienced for the past two years.

Derrick Joseph injured his shoulder in the second quarter of Towson's 27-24 loss to Maine on Saturday night, and he did not return to the game. But the senior return specialist could return in time for Saturday's 3:30 p.m. game at Johnny Unitas Stadium against Colonial Athletic Association opponent Stony Brook. Coach Rob Ambrose said Joseph, who ranks 22nd among all Football Championship Subdivision kick returners with a 25.6-yard average and has returned a school-record four kickoffs for touchdowns, suffered “a small strain” that does not require surgery.

It's just been one of those nagging things, but I think it's going to be better pretty soon," Carr said. "That's what I'm looking for.

The Orioles received some good news regarding outfielder Nick Markakis' injured right wrist, but how long the club might be without their Gold Glove right fielder, if at all, is unclear. X-rays taken of Markakis' wrist were negative and Markakis is scheduled to see a hand specialist in Florida during Thursday's off day in Tampa Bay, Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said Wednesday afternoon. That would indicate that Markakis will miss tonight's series finale in Toronto, but this is Markakis, who has missed just 10 total games over the past five seasons.

There will be countless predictions and analysis leading up to the Division I men's lacrosse Final Four this weekend, but the only way Duke won't win a second consecutive championship is if another team can match up with the Blue Devils in faceoffs. The Blue Devils simply have too much firepower to lose. Duke beat Johns Hopkins, 19-11, in a quarterfinal game Sunday, and the two Blue Devils goalies contributed just four total saves. That's amazing, especially in the postseason.

And Raffa agreed with his coach - to a degree. “I suppose so, just because he is the No. 1 guy in the nation and I'm No. 2 statistically,” Raffa said on Tuesday. “So I guess that does make me an underdog. But it's nothing to get mad about or overthink. I just want to go out there and play my best, knowing that [wing players] Brian [Cooper] and Mike [Ehrhardt]

A Stevenson defense that has surrendered just 5.8 goals per game in its last nine contests has been led by the play of senior defenseman Kyle Holechek.
