The final sections of beach at the Assateague Island National Seashore and Assateague State Park have reopened to beachgoers after more than 100 pieces of World War II-vintage ordnance were discovered washed ashore earlier this week. Munitions experts from the Army Corps of Engineers visually inspected North Ocean Beach and southernmost portion of the state park beach and swept them with detection equipment during a two-day search for more unexploded ordnance and debris left behind by the Navy when Assateague was used for target practice.

OFF THE COAST OF BLOODSWORTH ISLAND -- Harold Robinson was crabbing these waters of the Chesapeake Bay about 10 years ago when his fishing boat slammed into something underwater, gouging its keel, hurling his son to the deck with bruised ribs and burying Robinson under an avalanche of crab pots. The 46-foot Chris-Lin had not run aground on rocks or a reef but on another obstacle watermen in this remote section of Maryland's Eastern Shore sometimes face -- the turret of a submerged tank the Navy had been using for target practice.

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.

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.
