KEANU REEVES STEPS BEHIND THE LENS
The transition from actor to director was not an easy one for Keanu Reeves.
Reeves, who showed clips from his upcoming film "Man of Tai Chi" to a select crowd on Monday, said it took him a while to get into the director's mindset.
"The first day of that was not too much fun," he laughed during an interview.
BALTIMORE - Vernon Wells doubled in the tiebreaking run in the 10th inning and the New York Yankees hit four solo homers in a 6-4 victory over the Orioles on Monday night, extending Baltimore's losing streak to six games.
New York trailed 4-3 in the ninth before Travis Hafner homered with one out on a 3-1 pitch from Jim Johnson, who has blown three straight save opportunities after converting a franchise-record 35 in a row. All three of those botched saves have come during Baltimore's current skid.
DETROIT - The young Detroit Red Wings have made the mighty Chicago Blackhawks look vulnerable, beating them two straight times to gain an advantage in their last playoff matchup as Western Conference rivals.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan is changing his team's name to the Hornets, said a person familiar with the situation.
The person said Jordan will detail the timetable for the change to be completed at a press conference the Bobcats have scheduled for Tuesday. The person spoke to The Associated Press Monday on condition of anonymity because the name change has not been publicly announced.
INDIANAPOLIS - Pacers forward David West is expected to play Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals at Miami, despite an injured right leg.
Team doctors held West out of Monday's practice with what coach Frank Vogel described as a calf strain or lower leg strain. He did shoot around with his teammates after practice ended. Vogel said doctors thought it would be best to give West a day off.
Pacers centre Roy Hibbert had his right thumb taped after getting hit in practice. He finished the workout and it is not expected to keep him out of the Miami game on Wednesday night.
NEW YORK, N.Y. - Cincinnati Reds ace Johnny Cueto has been activated from the 15-day disabled list, and he is set to make his first start in more than a month on Monday night.
The Reds optioned infielder Neftali Soto to Triple-A Louisville on Monday so Cueto can face the New York Mets.
The right-handed Cueto strained a muscle in his upper back during a start April 13 after opening the season 1-0 with a 2.60 ERA. He will be making his fourth start of the year.
He was 19-9 with a 2.78 ERA for the Reds last year.

"Obviously, this is where you want to be," Bailey said. "Healthy, and with the team. Just looking forward to getting back out there."
GREENBURGH, N.Y. - Don't judge the New York Rangers by the scores of their two losses to the Boston Bruins.
According to coach John Tortorella, the Rangers played much better in the Game 2 blowout than in their overtime defeat in the series opener.
The bottom line is this: for the second consecutive series, New York has dug an 0-2 hole on the road and will need to rebound quickly at Madison Square Garden if the club hopes to extend this post-season run.
