OAKLAND - The atmosphere at the O.co Coliseum during the Orioles' workout on Thursday evening was more like one that took place on the back fields of the team's spring training complex in February rather than the end of the All-Star break.  Orioles manager Buck Showalter held court near the pitcher's mound and instructed players on pickoff plays and bunt defense. Down the right-field line, pitchers took turns throwing bullpen sessions. The Orioles will begin the second half Friday here in Oakland, opening a three-city, 10-game West Coast trip against three teams that would be in the postseason if the season ended today - the Oakland Athletics, Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners.

"We got the first squeeze man in all right and then tried to do it again for the winning run."

Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler's campaign for governor says in a new commercial that Maryland is squeezing its middle class with new taxes, and that he has identified more than $1.5 billion in state government waste. The Democrat's ad touts a waste-cutting plan that is described on his campaign website.  The website says significant savings would be achieved by reforming state procurement ($350 million), boosting Medicaid recovery efforts ($231 million) and reducing the non-violent prison population ($222.5 million)

Raoul Cedras, head of the illegal junta, has agreed to negotiate directly with Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Haiti's first popularly elected president, who was overthrown in September 1991 and sent into exile.

Because there's a different lineup every time Squeeze heads out on tour, some people might think the band is in constant state of flux.But Glenn Tilbrook sees the situation a little differently. To him, what truly defines Squeeze are the songs he and Chris Difford have written together over the past two decades. Consequently, all those personnel changes really are is little more than "an opportunity to play with different people under the umbrella of Squeeze."Squeeze," he adds, "is a sort of collective body of people that gather around Chris and my songs.

In late June, as we were driving along the Dordogne in Perigord, southwest France, we came upon the tiny town of La Roque-Gageac. It is squeezed between limestone cliffs and the river, with just enough room on its narrow main street for two cars to pass. In January 1957, a huge mass of the cliff came crashing down on the village (toward the far end of the photo), killing three and destroying a dozen homes. With that exception, the town is much as it was three centuries ago. Gary Vikan, Baltimore The Sun welcomes submissions for "My Best Shot."

Steve Nagrabski is struggling for words, trying to say what it is about the accordion that grabbed him and has held him for a half-century, through its peak in the 1950s and later exile to the ethnic fringe of American culture. Something about the sound, "the accordion has a sound of its own," he says.He can't describe it, so he leans down in his chair to lift from the floor a 30-plus-year-old Italian accordion, a wheezy thing with papery lungs and keys yellowed the shade of a jaundiced eye."

NEW YORK -- Much of the attention heading into the Orioles' series finale against the New York Yankees on Wednesday night shined squarely on Japanese sensation Masahiro Tanaka making his first start in pinstripes at Yankee Stadium, but the Orioles managed to steal the New York spotlight with a late-inning rally fitting of a Broadway crescendo. The Orioles broke open a tie game with two runs in the ninth inning off Yankees interim closer Shawn Kelley - a rally fueled by the bottom of the lineup - to propel themselves to a 5-4 win in front of an announced crowd of 39,412.

The Colonial Athletic Association tournament may have been short on fans, but the four-day event ended in a way organizers surely loved: with a frantic, late-game comeback and an iconic image of fans bounding onto the Baltimore Arena floor in celebration. Conference officials hope that the final scene - of Delaware celebrating its first CAA tournament title and first NCAA tournament berth since 1999 -- will be replayed and endure in the minds of Baltimoreans. They want those final images to help sell the tournament when it returns to Baltimore next season.

The Maryland men's basketball team came here last week with its collective confidence shaken. Coming off a home defeat to Oregon State last Sunday, the Terps arrived with an urgency to put their early-season problems behind them at the Paradise Jam. When the Terps return to Maryland, they won't mind trading warm breezes and blue skies for cold weather and rainy skies. All is well in their little world, especially after holding off previously unbeaten Providence, 56-52, in Monday night's championship game at the University of Virgin Islands' Sports and Fitness Center.

If indulging in Thanksgiving's excesses of food and drink has ever made you fret about fitting into the plane seat for the return trip home, a British company wants to put you at ease. Design company Seymourpowell believes it has solved the common problem that comes up when extra-stout passengers try to squeeze into a seat made for an average flier. The answer is a seat called Morph, which can be widened or reduced in width, depending on the space the passengers need. Here's how it works: A row of three seats are built as one, like a sofa, with armrest dividers that can be moved laterally to increase the width of one or two seats while reducing the space of the other.

With 21 freshmen and sophomores on his roster, Gilman coach Biff Poggi expected some growing pains and the Greyhounds sure felt them early in last night's season-opener against Good Counsel. The Falcons took a 14-0 lead in a little over three minutes and while the youth continued to show at times, the Greyhounds settled down to make critical plays late and come away with their first win over Good Counsel in three years, 20-14, in the season opener for both teams at the ESPN High School Football Kickoff Classic at Towson University's Johnny Unitas Stadium.

"The squeeze is on," yelped Jon Miller, and it's a good thing the Oriole announcer was providing radio-style play-by-play for Channel 2's telecast of the O's glittery opener yesterday.The suicide squeeze, perhaps the most exciting play in baseball, was executed perfectly by Billy Ripken, ninth man in the batting order. It not only took the Cleveland Indians by shock, it caught WMAR with its, uh, cameras down.While Leo Gomez chugged in from third and Ripken sprinted for first as the Cleveland pitcher scurried to make a play, viewers were being treated to a slow-motion replay of Chris Hoiles ambling into second base on a ground-rule double.

Dr. Craig Hendrix is exploring a novel concept: whether antiviral drugs can be absorbed through certain areas of the body to prevent sexual transmission of HIV. To test such hypotheses, Hendrix and his Johns Hopkins colleagues typically can put up healthy test subjects in hospital beds overnight, which creates a more effective experiment by allowing for more data collection and limiting outside variables. But volunteers in Hendrix's study are sleeping in a hotel between two long days of blood-drawing and CT scans because of a funding squeeze in a innovative federal grant program.

Despite allowing eight hits and two home runs, Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman stymied a powerful Toronto Blue Jays lineup just enough to post another quality start in the Orioles' 8-5 win Friday. Tillman allowed three runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out five to earn his team-leading 11th win of the season. That total ties him for sixth in the major leagues with St. Louis' Lance Lynn. “He's capable of spinning a real good game out there, if we can just get his pitch count down a little bit,” manager Buck Showalter said.
