When the New York Yankees did it to the Orioles on April 12, it was the first time the men in pinstripes had turned such a play on their home diamond since June 3, 1968. Last week, the Aberdeen IronBirds pulled off such a defensive feat for the first time in the ballclub's history of 10-plus seasons. The ever elusive triple play is a rare gem of the American national pastime. Fittingly enough, it took the IronBirds until they were having arguably their best season to turn the triple play.

NEW YORK - Adam Jones called it a routine play. The Orioles center fielder wouldn't blame it on the cold or the wind or the rain. Regardless of the conditions, he said it was a play he's made before countless times. “Just missed it,” Jones said. “Trust me, wish I could do it again, but hey, I missed it.” Jones' drop of a seventh-inning fly ball to deep center was a costly three-run error in the Orioles' 5-2 loss to the New York Yankees before an announced 35,033 Friday night.

NEW YORK -- After going through an early-season 1-for-18 slump, third baseman Manny Machado is starting to find his comfort zone in the No. 2 spot in the Orioles batting order. Since hitting the game-winning home run in the team's 8-5 comeback win in Boston on Wednesday night, Machado is 6-for-12, including a three-hit game Thursday and two hits Friday against the New York Yankees. His game Friday will be remembered for hitting into a triple play that ended the eighth, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before Saturday's game that he's proud of the way Machado has put some early struggles behind him in his first full big league season.

NEW YORK -- After the Yankees turned one of the weirdest triple plays you'd ever see in the eighth inning of the Orioles' 5-2 loss Friday night, the Yankees' celebration was fitting for the act. Left-hander CC Sabathia pumped his fist in the air as he ran off the field. Third baseman Kevin Youkilis jumped into the dugout for a round of high fives. Second baseman Robinson Cano, who started and ended the play at second base, skipped off the field. By now, the Yankees know that this Orioles team is never out of a game.

MONTREAL -- The newest member of what might be baseball's most elite club thought the ball that had earned him membership was lost forever."I can't believe I just tossed it away," Mickey Morandini said on the Philadelphia Phillies' flight from Pittsburgh on Sunday night, just a few hours after he had become only the ninth player in big-league history to pull off an unassisted triple play."

The roars returned to Camden Yards last night. So did the offense. So did the defense. And so did veteran pitcher Rick Sutcliffe, just in the nick of time.A gutty, often brilliant performance by Sutcliffe, a 14-hit barrage that included bases-empty home runs by Mike Devereaux and Chito Martinez and the first triple play by the Orioles in two years resulted in a 9-1 win over the California Angels. The victory broke a three-game losing streak for the second-place Orioles, and cut the Toronto Blue Jays' lead to two games.

BOWIE -- Eugene Kingsale returned to the lineup with hits in his first three at-bats and the Bowie Baysox turned the fourth triple play in their history yesterday.But that was all the positive news as the Trenton Thunder bunched five of its seven hits into two rallies and scored a 6-1 Double-A Eastern League victory at Prince George's Stadium.Julio Moreno (6-4) was coasting along with a two-hitter into the fifth inning when Trenton combined three hits, two walks and a hit batsman into four runs and sealed the verdict for left-hander Felix Ramirez (4-1)

CLEVELAND - The Orioles benefited from one of the most bizarre plays of the season last night when shortstop Melvin Mora manufactured a triple play out of a seemingly innocuous second-inning pop fly. The play not only allowed Orioles starting pitcher Sidney Ponson to escape a jam with runners at first and second, it led to Cleveland Indians manager Charlie Manuel's third ejection of the season - all against the Orioles - and marked a successful argument by...

Theatergoers in search of a dark comedy, a musical or an adventure told in imaginative stage action will find all three in productions now showing at nearby venues. The Children's Theatre of Annapolis is beginning its 53rd year — and its fourth at its Bay Head Road location in Annapolis — with performances by a teen cast in "Legally Blonde: The Musical," directed and choreographed by Jason Kimmell, with Joshua Konick as musical director. The 2001 movie starring Reese Witherspoon and Luke Wilson inspired a Tony Award-nominated musical that premiered on Broadway in 2007.

Winter had not loosed its icy grip when I boarded a plane for St. Petersburg, Fla., and a weekend with Connie and Nancy, my best friends since the seventh grade. "My best friends since the seventh grade" is how we introduce each other. It is a point we like to emphasize. Most marriages don't last as long as we have. We've been trying to get together once a year since the kids stopped requiring our undivided attention, but it has been hit or miss. We are all still working, each of us has a busy season, and they never seem to coincide.

Are we supposed to celebrate Kyle Busch's recent "triple play"? Or bemoan the fact he is cherry-picking easy victories against less-experienced and less-talented drivers? There are lines of demarcation in all sports, which is why you never will see the Florida Tuskers of the UFL taking on the Indianapolis Colts of the NFL. But it's a little different in NASCAR, which allows drivers to mix and match in three different series. It makes for an odd mix like we saw last month, when Busch completed an unprecedented sweep of three national races.

Washington has a triple-play of festivals on tap for the weekend. Feeling folksy? The Smithsonian Folklife Festival will cure that. Hungry for pork? The National Capital Barbecue Battle will feed that. Just need to dress up and go dancing in the streets? The DC Caribbean Carnival will rock that. Here's the plan: The plan: The Folklife Festival, thankfully, begins Thursday, so you don't even have to get through the entire week. The opening ceremonies take place on the National Mall at 11 a.m. Can't make it out the door that early without the boss noticing?

There was little doubt that yesterday's triple play was made possible by a base-running mistake by Randy Milligan, who was running all the way from first on a long line drive by Mike Devereaux. It was an honest mistake, because it did not look as if Mariners right fielder Jay Buhner would be able to make a play.Milligan ran right up Brady Anderson's back between second and third, and Anderson was ruled out when he passed Milligan trying to go back to second base.The ball was relayed to shortstop Omar Vizquel, who stepped on second base (to no real effect, because Anderson was already out)

It's spring, PC fans, and you know what that means: computer baseball.The national pastime inspires more computer geeks to create more entertainment software than any other subject save killing. In a given year, nearly a dozen baseball titles line store shelves. And the '99 season is no different.Among the first games out of the chute this season are two of the best on the market: Triple Play 2000 (Electronic Arts; $39.95) and High Heat Baseball 2000 (3DO; $29.95).Triple Play is an arcade-style baseball game with more emphasis on adrenalin than simulating every nuance of the game.

For the defending Class 4A state champion Broadneck softball team, Tuesday's state semifinal against determined Urbana came down to an inch in a game-turning fifth inning and then an unconventional ending at Bachman Sports Complex in Glen Burnie. The No. 2 Bruins survived and advanced with a 4-3 win when Urbana's hopes were dashed on an infield pop-up that turned into a game-ending double play. Kimber Salvas provided the key fifth-inning hit that got the Bruins going, slicing a run-scoring triple down the first base line that fell just under Urbana right fielder Emily Down's glove and rolled into foul territory.

For the shakedown venture at the temporary performance space that is Bowie's City Hall, 2nd Star Productions chooses three one-act plays: one about revolution in a fictional Caribbean island nation; another that looks at two lonely women who discover they're both regularly feeding the same stray cat; and a third that delivers laughs through a script of one-syllable words. With its usual home, the Bowie Playhouse, undergoing renovations, 2nd Star makes the best of its temporary quarters.
