Horses and Orioles

I’d like to change my prediction for the Belmont Stakes, if it isn’t too late.
Anyone out there hit the trifecta?

Anyone have Big Brown finishing last?

I picked Buster Douglas to win because I always go for the upset.

Now that the Orioles have disposed of A.J. Burnett, who hadn’t lost to them until yesterday, they can step forward and claim their prize: Roy Halladay, who’s 16-4 with a 2.84 ERA against them.

The Orioles will watch closely to see if Radhames Liz can maintain his command, and effectiveness, the second and third time through the Blue Jays’ order. He dominated the Twins over five innings in his season debut, but retired only one batter in the sixth and was gone.

Liz still falls toward first base when completing his delivery, but at least he doesn’t end up in the dugout.

Brooks Robinson and Eddie Murray have launched their own wine labels, and you can find them – the bottles, not the Hall of Famers - in Maryland stores this week. All proceeds go toward the Baltimore Community Foundation. Learn more at .

The Eddie Murray 504 Cabernet Sauvignon and Brooks Robinson Chardonnay are produced by Eos Estate Winery out of Paso Robles, Cal.

Someone offered me a glass of the Sammy Sosa shiraz, but I sent it back. Too much cork floating in it.

Luis Montanez homered twice last night for Double- A Bowie, and Brad Bergesen won his seventh game.

At Single-A Frederick, Matt Wieters hit his 13th home run, tops in the Carolina League. Tim Bascom walked six batters in four innings. He allowed two earned runs (five total).
