Two male warthogs, born March 22 to Kumari and Kajani at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, are up and around and acting just like the little pigs they are. "They're cute," insists Mike McClure, the zoo's general curator, well aware of the warthog's reputation for being ... well, pretty darn ugly. "They already have teeth; they already have their fur coats. They look just like miniature pigs." The two piglets were discovered by zoo personnel at 4 a.m. March 22. These are the first babies for 5-year-old Kumari, who has been at the Maryland Zoo since she was a young warthog herself.

The A-10 Thunderbolt II, a snub-nosed ground-attack plane that the Maryland Air National Guard has flown in Iraq and Afghanistan, is the latest aircraft to find its way onto the Pentagon's endangered weapons list. Outfitted with a seven-barrel Gatling gun the size of a Volkswagen Beetle in its nose, the Cold War-era plane has a reputation for tearing apart armored tanks and clearing the way for troops on the ground with its massive 30-millimeter rounds of ammunition. But the unsightly plane - it's nicknamed the Warthog - has been in the cross hairs of Pentagon officials in recent years.

The kids didn't seem to mind, but mom was a nervous wreck. The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore 's five-week-old baby warthogs, named Kirby and Cecil in an online poll that attracted some 1,300 votes, had their official coming-out party Tuesday morning. While the two boy hogs were content to simply hang together in the back of their enclosure, mom Kumari was clearly a wreck, pacing back and forth ceaselessly, casting worried glances at the assembled humans, acting for all the world more like an expectant father than a proud mama.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - John Maine pitched a seven-inning no-hitter in the second game of a doubleheader with the Winston-Salem Warthogs last night to lead the Frederick Keys to a 3-0 victory in the Single-A Carolina League. Maine (1-0), making his second start since joining the Keys from lower-level Single-A Delmarva, struck out six. The Warthogs' only runner reached on an error by first baseman Mike Huggins, whose team-leading ninth home run gave Frederick a 1-0 lead. Maine, the Orioles' sixth-round pick in the 2002 amateur draft, earned the call-up from Delmarva by going 7-3 with a 1.53 ERA in 12 starts, striking out 108 and walking 18 in 76 1/3 innings.
