If the Ravens face another third-and-one situation Sunday, the fans at M&T Bank Stadium won't be the only ones calling for coach Brian Billick to run the ball. The statistics say the Ravens should do it, too. Based on 2006 numbers analyzed by the Pro Football Prospectus, running on third-and-one will convert 36 percent more often than passing. When it's third or fourth down with 1 to 2 yards to go, running is successful 40 percent more often. That's why the possibility of a long gain by throwing the ball is not worth the risk of an incompletion that can kill a drive.

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones admitted before Saturday's Game 2 of the American League Championship Series that he might need to be a little more patient at the plate for his team to get back into the series against the Kansas City Royals. Jones doesn't make any apologies for his aggressiveness at the plate, but he noted that the playoffs offer a different game, inherently smaller strike zones and more opportunity for batters to wait on their pitch to hit. And Jones has struggled in the postseason, entering the day just 5-for-42 with 11 strikeouts in 10 career playoff games.

The Rolex International Women's Keelboat Championship ended yesterday without completing the 11th and final race of the week. Northerly winds died as the teams gathered off Annapolis and afternoon sea breezes failed to develop. With first place decided Thursday, the remaining race was expected to be a showdown for second and third between 2001 Rolex winner Cory Sertl (38 points), former Rolex Yachtswomen of the Year Jody Swanson (47 points), and 2004 Olympian Carol Cronin (48 points). Cronin won a redress hearing after Thursday's competition.

On the field: Had Brady Anderson's streak of 31 straight stolen-base attempts without being caught ended in the third inning last night, he would've had a good excuse. With a 3-2 count on Kevin Bass, Anderson took off running four times -- only to return when Bass fouled off each pitch. Anderson also dove back into first twice on pickoff attempts. Bass' at-bat finally ended when Bass grounded out to third and Anderson advanced to second. Two batters later, Anderson stole third, his 32nd straight, to tie the AL record.

The subject of their compositions was, "Where do balloons go when you set them free?"One winning author wrote about a helium-filled heaven for balloons. Another thought deflated balloons returned to Earth as multicolored blossoms in the spring.

In doing so, he probably will become the first guard taken in the June 26 draft, possibly by Charlotte.An NBA gag order concerning underclassmen still applies to Anderson, so Hornets vice president Allan Bristow couldn't discuss Anderson's impact yesterday.

J.J. Reidy boarded a garish yellow RV parked in Harbor East and shared a vision: vast greenhouses in Baltimore raising produce to feed thousands, the plants feeding on nutrients from the waste of fish swimming in nearby tanks. In two minutes and 35 seconds of video time, the graduate business student and would-be entrepreneur delivered the pitch he fashioned with his business partner, Julie Buisson, wrapping it up with a punchy closing line: "We believe we can feed our city in our city.

Injured Orioles third baseman Manny Machado was in the Orioles' clubhouse Wednesday and promised to return in late October if his teammates make it to World Series. "I'll be back, for sure," said the 21-year-old Machado, who has been in Los Angeles rehabbing since he had surgery on Aug. 27 to repair a partially torn ligament in his right knee. He arrived in Baltimore on Monday and said he will stay for the two games at Camden Yards before leaving Saturday for the club's spring training complex in Sarasota, Fla. to continue his rehab.

TORONTO - The Orioles arrived home from Canada on Sunday night and will get a day off before having workouts Tuesday and Wednesday ahead of Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers on Thursday. Orioles manager Buck Showalter will try to hold Wednesday's workout around the same time as Game 1 to get his players on the same clock. They're likely to be the early game with the other ALDS game being played on the West Coast, but if the Orioles play at 8 p.m. Thursday, the workout likely would be around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday praised Joe Flacco's decision-making, especially his ability to deliver the ball quickly when under pressure on third down, as one of the things that contributed to one of the quarterback's better games in recent memory. Flacco threw for 327 yards and three touchdowns with a quarterback rating of 137.4 in the Ravens' 38-10 win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, with a good chunk of that production coming on third down. “He made plays, and especially third down-and-long plays when he had pressure coming at him,” Harbaugh said.

With Greg Gumbel and Trent Green as the CBS broadcast team on today's Ravens game, I was eager to see how Gumbel would fare without his old, gaffe-prone partner Dan Dierdorf. I figured Gumbel had to be better, right? Wrong. “Welcome back to an absolutely beautiful day in Baltimore, Maryland,” Gumbel said in his opening remarks as viewers saw an overhead shot of M&T Bank Stadium. “The sun is shining, the temperature is 78 degrees on this last day of September ...” Oops.

Severna Park has dominated Class 4A boys cross country the last few years. The Falcons won the last two state championships by wide margins and easily beat most opponents during the season. That didn't happen during the Bull Run Invitational's Elite Division race Saturday at Hereford. No. 2 Dulaney has run well early this fall, and the Lions pushed No. 1 Severna Park, before the Falcons pulled out a seven-point victory. This race was likely a preview of what will be seen at the Class 4A state title meet on Nov. 8, also at Hereford, and both teams knew it. Eric Walz of Dulaney was the individual champion, taking first in 16 minutes, 5.5 seconds as the Lions put two runners in the top 10. But Severna Park used the depth that's made it so hard to beat over the last three seasons.

TORONTO - Alexi Casilla woke up Friday morning expecting to fly home to his native Dominican Republic that night to prepare for the upcoming winter ball season. Instead, he was on a flight to Toronto to join the Orioles with an opportunity to make the team's postseason roster. Casilla is starting at third base and batting leadoff on Saturday, and is expected to do the same in the regular-season finale on Sunday. Orioles manager Buck Showalter isn't pleased with his team's defense at third base of late - third basemen have committed five errors over the past eight games - so he is getting a look at Casilla.
