Archbishop Spalding softball coach Linda Taylor may be dismayed about the process, but she can't argue with the results. Despite gaining just two hits, the top-ranked Cavaliers made the most of their opportunities in a 3-0 home victory over No. 14 Catholic at Randazzo Park in Severn yesterday. Four Cubs errors contributed to all three of Archbishop Spalding's runs, which moved the Cavaliers to 14-1 overall and 11-1 in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference. Taylor was still worried enough about her team's weak hitting to organize a 10-minute meeting after the game.

Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis waited nine seasons, 1,365 games and 5,966 plate appearances for his first postseason at-bat. The 30-year-old admits he was rather nervous when he stepped to the plate around 6 p.m. Thursday before a soldout, screaming, orange-towel waving crowd at Camden Yards. “Absolutely, I'd be lying if I told you no,” Markakis said. “That is part of the game, part of the job. It's a matter of controlling your emotions and staying within yourself on the big stage.” Markakis watched three pitches, two balls and a strike, before taking his first hack, smacking a 93-mph fastball from Detroit Tigers starter Max Scherzer straight back to center field for his first postseason single - and the Orioles' first hit of the 2014 playoffs.

Just about every time the Tampa Bay Rays have been mentioned to Buck Showalter in the past month, he can't help but talk about Drew Smyly, the left-handed starter the Rays received from the Detroit Tigers in last month's blockbuster deal that included All-Star left-hander David Price. Showalter has gushed about Smyly for parts of three seasons. The Orioles had inquired about his availability periodically during that span, but they never could land him. Based on his performance in the Rays' 3-1 victory Wednesday at Camden Yards, the Orioles can't be happy about facing Smyly a whole lot over the next four-plus seasons.

**** Jay Gibbons: This is getting ridiculous. *** Pat Hentgen: Expected to be the Opening Day starter, Hentgen looks awfully good as the No. 4 guy after a delayed spring debut. Brady Anderson: Reaches his first two trips, gets to second after an apparent pickoff and steals a base. Steve Sisco: Collects two hits and reaches base four times. And his defense at second continues to impress. Ed Rogers: The prospect everyone is talking about had two infield hits in two at-bats. His speed is just one component of a dynamic package.

River Hill's Jessica Tabacca threw a five-hitter, had two hits and scored two runs as the visiting Hawks upset No. 12 Severna Park, 6-1, yesterday in the Class 3A East region softball quarterfinals. Senior shortstop Gina Ager went 3-for-3 with a walk and two runs and catcher Alex Schovee had two hits and two runs as the Hawks used a four-run third inning to avenge an 8-3 loss to the Falcons earlier this season. After the game, Severna Park coach Jeff Shepherd announced he was stepping down after nine seasons to spend more time with his family.

The No. 2 Atholton Raiders played perhaps their best game of the season, fighting off a driving rain to pound out 12 hits in an 11-2 victory last night over Howard at Cedar Lane Park. Raiders pitcher Katie Zitnay had some trouble gripping the ball in the first inning, and the Lions took advantage by scoring two runs off four hits. But from then on, Zitnay allowed only two hits and struck out five. Kelly Kemp led Atholton (15-2, 13-2 Howard County) with three hits, reaching base twice on errors and scoring three runs.

TORONTO - Even though he has only three hits in his past 39 at-bats, Orioles left fielder-designated hitter Nelson Cruz said he believes he's on the verge of breaking out of the slump. Cruz carried the Orioles offense for most of the first half of the season, leading the major leagues with 28 home runs and 74 RBIs at the All-Star break. But after going 1-for-4 on Thursday, he is hitting just .113 with one homer and three RBIs since making his third All-Star Game appearance last month.

When you play nine seasons with one club, and you are a career .293 hitter, eventually you are going to start moving up the organization's all-time lists. With a single in the first inning and a double in the seventh Thursday, right fielder Nick Markakis tied and then passed former teammate Brian Roberts for seventh on the Orioles' all-time hits list with 1,453. Next up for Markakis is sixth place and longtime right fielder Ken Singleton, who leads Markakis by two hits. The rest of the list is a "who's who" in Orioles' lore: Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. is the organization's all-time leader with 3,184 hits.

The Orioles have been searching the past few weeks for the Chris Tillman who showed up Tuesday night at Camden Yards -- the guy who can survive a rough situation, pitch through it and keep his team in the game. The problem, though, is that the Orioles' offense went missing in a 1-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox -- turning in the club's weakest performance of the season. “The Red Sox didn't just come in and say, 'Here's all fastballs, just beat us to death,' no,” Orioles designated hitter Adam Jones said.

COLUMBIA, S.C. - Maryland coach John Szefc has been around the game of baseball for a long time, but he can't recall earning a victory the way the Terps did Friday afternoon against Old Dominion in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament. Brandon Lowe and Jose Cuas were hit by pitches with the bases loaded in the ninth inning to drive in the final two runs in a 4-3 comeback win that gave Maryland its first NCAA tournament victory since 1970.

NEW YORK -- Inside the visiting clubhouse at Yankee Stadium, there might have been some relief that the Orioles' vaunted offense finally put together a game to be proud of in their 14-5 drubbing of the Yankees on Tuesday afternoon, but the Orioles didn't put any greater value on this much-needed victory than any other. “It's a 162-game season,” said center fielder Adam Jones, who hit one of the Orioles' three home runs. “It's kind of just go with the flow and understand that this [season]

It was the kind of game the Orioles needed desperately earlier this month. Paced by a tremendous outing from starter Miguel Gonzalez, a bullpen that preserved the lead and some timely hitting, the Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 3-2, on Thursday night to win the season series against the American League East's last-place club. “It's always the recipe. If you get good starting pitching and turn it over to the bullpen late in the game, it leaves us a lot of chances to win the ballgame,” Orioles catcher Matt Wieters said.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Orioles were introduced to the latest jewel of the Tampa Bay Rays' pitching pipeline Friday night. Rays right-hander Chris Archer, who was making just his sixth career big league start, limited the high-powered Orioles offense to a season-low two hits in a 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay in front of an announced 13,256 at Tropicana Field. Orioles starter Jason Hammel took a one-run lead into the seventh-inning stretch, but he allowed a two-run homer to Rays center fielder Desmond Jennings in bottom half of the frame.
