Nothing extra The Orioles' game against the St. Louis Cardinals yesterday didn't go past regulation because Cesar Crespo wouldn't allow it. Crespo, summoned twice from the minor league camp, singled with two outs in the ninth inning to score Terry Tiffee and give the Orioles a 6-5 victory in Jupiter, Fla. Crespo's hit came against major league veteran Russ Springer. Still struggling Freddie Bynum has been regarded as a leading candidate to fill the last spot on the 25-man roster, but he went 0-for-4 with one strikeout, lowering his average to .135.

MANY people have strong feelings for their cars. The direction those feelings take depends usually on how well the car runs.When someone pays several thousand dollars for a mound of metal and plastic that does nothing but consume gas and leak motor oil, those strong feelings tend to be negative. People have been known to swear, kick and make crude gestures to their automobiles on the occasion of flat tires, failure to start and other common auto hazards.On the other hand, there are some people who love their cars.

Adam Jones has proven his toughness all season long, playing through pain in both of his wrists, starting in center field in every game but one this season -- all while being hit by pitches 10 times, second most in the AL. But Orioles fans - and manager Buck Showalter - had to cringe during the team's five-run sixth inning in their 5-3 win over Boston on Wednesday night. That's when Jones lowered his left shoulder on a play at the plate and collided full force with Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

GRANTSVILLE -- The formal stone cross stands on a moss-touched pedestal by a rushing stream -- a picture of serenity in the deep woods.It's a picture seen more often this time of year. Spring brings out more hikers. They cross Poplar Lick Run several times on the Poplar Lick Trail, but when they see the cross, the simple beauty often stops them. It recalls Gen. Stonewall Jackson's last words: "Let us cross over the river and rest under the trees."Close up, though, the memorial reveals the unexpected.

A lot of people who should know better are talking about H. Ross Perot and the things he says rather than focusing attention on the critical issues ahead in this presidential year. That's amazing, even if Mr. Perot is one of the richest men in this country, because he's really a UFO candidate: pops up on the radar screen, blitzes by at high speed, then disappears when the interceptors scramble up for a look-see.To begin with, being rich alone does not win elections. Or did Nelson Rockefeller really beat Dick Nixon in 1968?

Leakin Park is a place where a person can go from a crowded urban road to a secluded wooded path in minutes. But what makes the wilderness expanse a sanctuary for city dwellers makes it attractive for killers as well.It has been dubbed "the city's largest unregistered graveyard" -- an urban forest in Dead Run Valley where children discover skeletons and city workers find bullet-riddled corpses draped over guardrails.Established six decades ago on land once owned by a Prussian railroad industrialist, Leakin Park is simply the place to dump a body in Baltimore.

A 43-year-old Lutherville man was sentenced to 18 months of home detention yesterday for threatening to shoot two county zoning officers who had come to inspect his Falls Road property. Steven L. Galasso entered an Alford plea last month to one count of second-degree assault, acknowledging that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him of the crime while not admitting guilt. He apologized yesterday in court to the two zoning inspectors, who came to his home in March. On that occasion, Galasso loaded two shells into a shotgun and cocked the weapon before yelling at the code enforcement officers to get off his property or get shot, according to court documents.
