Opponent: Harrisburg HeatSite: State Farm Show Arena, Harrisburg, Pa.Time: 7:35Radio: WWLG (1360 AM), WAMD (970 AM)Outlook: The Spirit and Heat are running two-three in the National Professional Soccer League's American Division and are likely to meet in the playoffs for the third straight year. Harrisburg, 1 1/2 games behind, conceivably could overtake the Spirit and thus earn the home-field advantage for the playoffs. The Spirit leads the season series, 3-2. If Harrisburg wins tonight to tie the series, and the teams finish the regular season tied, the Heat would get the home-field advantage based on winning margin.

PBS stays on a Friday-night arts-programming roll with a "Great Performances" concert staging of Sting's upcoming musical "The Last Ship. " The musical, which opens in October on Broadway, is set in the working-class, shipyard world of Sting's childhood in Newcastle, England. I wasn't that excited when I started the DVD screener, but about 15 minutes in, I was totally gone. The music and the stories Sting tells between songs are superb. Check out this podcast preview I did of "Sting: The Last Ship" for WYPR-FM.

The Orioles will recall Josh Stinson from Triple-A Norfolk before tonight's game to serve as a right-handed long-relief arm behind left-handed starter Wei-Yin Chen, according to a club source. Following Tuesday's 8-4 loss to the Rangers, the club optioned left-hander Zach Britton and right-hander Kevin Gausman, who both pitched Tuesday, to Norfolk. Before tonight's game, the team must also activate Chen off the disabled list. The Orioles chose to recall Stinson, who would be working on just three days rest if he is needed tonight, over left-handers Tsuyoshi Wada and Mike Belfiore because manager Buck Showalter likes to have right-handed long relievers when a left-hander starts.
