An article in Friday's editions of The Sun centered on Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron's defense of his decisions to call for passes on all five of the offense's third down-and-short situations in Sunday's 24-23 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Running back Ray Rice, who had rushed for 99 yards on 16 carries (a 6.2 average), didn't question Cameron's play-calling, saying that the decisions were “great.” History shows that the Ravens have been north of the 50 percent mark at converting on third downs of two yard or less since the beginning of 2011.

On the change in the Ravens' offense I think what Brian Billick has done is to mold the offense around Steve McNair's style of play vs. having McNair fit into Jim Fassel's offense. McNair has looked a lot better the past two weeks. There is still some room for improvement but, oddly enough, he looks to be throwing the ball with more authority. McNair is simply being asked to not lose the game. Anything he does above and beyond average is icing on the cake.

The challenges have become a weekly occurrence for the Ravens offense. After clashing with the Cincinnati Bengals' second-ranked rush defense Nov. 20 and then the San Francisco 49ers' top-ranked run defense four days later, the offense gets a shot at the Cleveland Browns' pass defense, which is ranked first in the NFL. “We want to rise to the occasion,” tight end Ed Dickson said. “It's another goal we want to do. Just like the 49ers, who are known for their run defense, we wanted to score on them, but we were one yard short of scoring on them.

Quote: "It was like my son's Little League game, the way we were throwing the ball around. But we survived and I'm glad it's over."-- Devil Rays' Wade Boggs after Tampa Bay and Oakland combined for four errors.It's a fact: The Athletics' Rickey Henderson went 0-for-5, keeping him one hit shy of becoming the 62nd player in major-league history to reach 2,600.Who's hot: The Rangers lead the American League with a .325 team batting average at home (327-for-1,007).Who's not: Toronto's 5-2 win extended Boston's losing streak to a season-high four games.

Brady Anderson said he might have aggravated a strained groin chasing a fly ball in the fourth inning last night, and again while running to first base and beating an errant throw in the fifth.Trainer Richie Bancells and manager Davey Johnson checked on him in the fifth. "They just wanted to see if I was going to injure it more by staying out there," said Anderson, who remained in the game.Anderson took the wrong angle on a long drive by Bip Roberts, caught up to it, then bent over after throwing the ball back to the infield.

Steve Mays is leading a football revolution at Westminster High.The senior quarterback and the Owls have scrapped that three yards and a cloud of dust stuff and are throwing the ball with regularity and accuracy.In three games under new coach Tim Ebersole, Mays has completed 23-of-31 passes for 340 yards and five touchdowns, helping Westminster (2-1) pick up important victories over Class 4A opponents Woodlawn (33-12) and Meade (27-12).Those two 4A wins are one more than the school had in its previous three seasons.

IN SPRING, a man's thoughts turn to baseball and throwing the ball around with his 7-year-old. And when a man's thoughts turn to throwing the ball around with his 7-year-old, his next thought is often: "Where's the nearest emergency room?"This, basically, was what came to mind the other day after my son and I got out the gloves and ball and started playing catch in the back yard.At the same time, the 13-year-old appeared on the deck with her boom box and began listening to a CD by Jewel or Brandy or Tiffany or Amber or one of those annoying people she listens to.Anyway, whatever CD she was listening to, it was cranked up pretty loud.

The Maryland coaching staff had a change of heart toward Arundel's Erik Lipton, The Sun's All-Metro quarterback.Lipton was ready to commit to Maryland last summer, but held off his choice of a college when coach Mark Duffner's future became uncertain. He was disappointed earlier this month when the new coaching staff decided not to make the same offer. But last night coach Ron Vanderlinden made a new sales pitch that Lipton accepted."I'm very, very excited," Lipton said. "It's what I wanted all along.

Eric DeCosta, the Ravens' director of player personnel, gave quarterback Joe Flacco a pre-draft assignment before the lockout: Scout a selected group of six receivers expected to be taken in the middle rounds and report back. "Tandon Doss was the top guy," coach John Harbaugh said Saturday as the Ravens wrapped up their 16th draft. In an offseason where the Ravens took away Flacco's quarterbacks coach and told him to wait another year for a contract extension, the organization granted one of his wishes with an Indiana wide receiver in the fourth round.

A cold-water dousing from a football team may be more refreshing in the heat of August, when practice starts, but it's much more meaningful in the chill of November and December, when championships are decided. That's why Westminster coach Brad Wilson was quite willing to get drenched in sub-40-degree temperatures last Friday by his team and would take another one in about a month when the state's Class 3A champion is crowned. "I'll take it," Wilson said, alternating between chuckles and shivers.

Quote: "Everybody knows that [hitting] is not my strength. Throwing the ball into the bullpen is one of my strengths." -- Dennis Hocking of the Twins, commenting on his three doubles, then his costly throwing error in the ninth inning of a 7-6 loss to the Devil Rays yesterday It's a fact: When Royals shortstop Luis Ordaz reached the majors last season, he became the 100th Venezuelan to play in the big leagues. Ordaz was claimed off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday. Who's hot: Darin Erstad of the Angels went 4-for-5 with a homer, two doubles and five RBIs in a 12-6 victory over the Yankees on Wednesday night.

After stumbling through a 1-2 start with too many stretches of sloppy, inconsistent basketball, Mount St. Mary's was due for a good game.It settled for a good half.Last night at Loyola's Reitz Arena, the visiting Mountaineers drove coach Jim Phelan crazy with more slipshod work in the first half, as they committed 13 turnovers, missed five of six free throws, and found themselves in a 40-27 hole at the break.But it was a different Mount team that emerged from the locker room. It made smart passes, grabbed rebounds, hit open shots and free throws, and forced turnovers with pressure defense.
