Severn senior forward Leanne Hug, expected back early this week after missing two weeks with an ankle injury, will be a welcome sight as the Admirals prepare for the stretch run in defending their Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference crown. The Admirals (13-3, 6-2 in the league before Friday's game against Mount de Sales) have held their own in Hug's absence with different players taking turns stepping up. In Tuesday's 54-38 victory over St. Vincent Pallotti, the team got 14 points from junior guard Leah Cranmer and 10 rebounds and three blocks from senior center Caitlin Sheehan.

The Orioles added a pair of relievers Monday, the first day of expanded rosters, as they recalled right-hander Evan Meek from Triple-A Norfolk and purchased the contract of left-hander Joe Saunders from the Tides. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the club initially planned to just add Saunders on Monday, but he decided to add Meek as well after the team was forced to use five relievers in the 12-8 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday. The team is also expected to add right-hander Ryan Webb on Tuesday as long as he is OK after his outing at Norfolk on Monday.

No. 20 Towson's rise to a tie for second place in the Colonial Athletic Association may have more to do with the defense's performance than the offense's woes. In the team's past two games, the defense has surrendered an average of 7.0 goals while racking up a 2-1 league record. By comparison, the offense has scored just 6.5 goals per game. The Tigers (8-3 overall) did come away with a decision over then-No. 18 Massachusetts on Saturday, but scored just six goals for the contest and zero goals in the fourth quarter.

The stretch run has arrived, with a mere four games separating the five teams in the American Conference of the National Professional Soccer League. Coming along with the first-place Blast, which, at 18-12, is a half-game in front of Philadelphia and Harrisburg, is a continued string of injuries. Midfielder Danny Kelly, who has missed the past five games and a total of eight with a groin injury, will be out again for tonight's game against Cleveland and tomorrow's against Buffalo. Leading scorer Denison Cabral (separated shoulder)

It was the athlete in Southern Image that persuaded California trainer Mike Machowsky to splurge at a Florida auction of 2-year-olds in 2002. And it was a gritty stretch run at Pimlico Race Course that verified Machowsky's initial judgment and pushed Southern Image into elite company among the country's older horses yesterday. The 4-year-old son of Halo's Image stalked front-runner Midway Road around the track and passed him halfway through the stretch to win the $500,000 Pimlico Special before a crowd of 24,471.

Wait a minute, let me see if I remember this correctly. The Orioles finished what last season? 68-93. Fifth (as in last) place in the American League East. In the dismal slog through September, manager Dave Trembley couldn't have been blamed if he had reached into the Camden Yards stands for his next starter - except there was no one sitting in them. And there were times when he would have done just as well to stick a cardboard cutout of Miguel Tejada at shortstop. The Orioles had a stretch run like Big Brown in the Belmont Stakes, meaning it was less of a stretch run than it was a stretch stagger - seven wins and 30 losses after Aug. 17. The Orioles might have shown some grit through the opening three-quarters of the season, but by the end of year the holes in this team were gaping.

Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez entered in the ninth inning Sunday and threw one perfect inning - his first relief outing since July 1, 2012. The Orioles wanted him to pitch against live hitters at least once in between his most recent start, last Tuesday, and his next one, Friday in New York. With two team off days in less than a week, Showalter chose to give Gonzalez the most rest to keep him fresh for the stretch run. Gonzalez admitted that he was nervous entering a game in the ninth and not the first, even with the score 10-3.

The impending return of switch-hitter Wilson Betemit from the injury he suffered in spring training does not preclude the Orioles from adding a designated hitter within the next two weeks, according to the club's top executive. “We have Wilson in our organization. If he is ready, and he can help us, we would put him on our ballclub, but he's not quite ready yet. He's getting closer, but he's been out for a long time,” Orioles executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette said Sunday.

With Jason Hammel rejoining the Orioles on Thursday and given the fact that Chris Tillman has yet to be scratched from his next start, I asked Orioles manager Buck Showalter  about the concept of going to a six-man rotation for the stretch run. He quickly shook his head, lost on the term "rotation. " Having numbers is good. Adding pitchers like Steve Johnson and perhaps Jake Arrieta to a mix that already included Hammel, Tillman, Wei-Yin Chen, Zach Britton, Joe Saunders and Miguel Gonzalez can help the Orioles reach their ultimate goal - the playoffs.

Without getting overly dramatic about it, the Maryland Terps are at a critical juncture in their season. Maybe you heard: things are not exactly going smoothly for the Terps. Going into tonight's contest against Boston College at Comcast Center, the Terps have lost three of their last four games, including a 73-55 blowout at Duke five days ago. Not only that, but they've lost their sophomore point guard, Pe'Shon Howard, for the rest of the season. Not only that, but their coach, Mark Turgeon, and their leading scorer, Terrell Stoglin, seem to be having, um, philosophical differences over what constitutes a good shot and a bad shot for the talented sophomore guard.

Coal Dust and Private Attack both punched their ticket to next Saturday's Hunt Cup during the 107th Grand National Steeplechase at Butler. In a stirring stretch duel, Coal Dust beat the defending champion by a neck Saturday as an overflow crowd watched under ideal jumping conditions. It's ironic that, barring injury or illness, Private Attack will make Maryland's most prestigious and lucrative timber race next weekend after finishing a game second. Last year, he dominated the Grand National, but then experienced a metabolic issue before the Hunt Cup and never made the race.

Magna Entertainment Corp., the financially troubled owner of Laurel Park and Pimlico Race Course, faces a crucial loan deadline today that, if unmet, could force the racetrack operator to declare bankruptcy, according to SEC documents. Magna executives have warned that lenders could call in virtually all of its debt if it misses payments to banks and others. Magna has more than $600 million in debt, according to documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The loan due today is a $40 million credit line from the Bank of Montreal.
