It's almost hard to get your arms around. Three years ago, the Orioles were a divisional doormat with a 14-year losing streak and a frustrated fan base that didn't know if the franchise would ever figure out which way was up. Six months ago, they were a projected third-place team - at best - with a one-dimensional offense and a questionable pitching staff. Today, they are American League East champions and they are headed for the postseason with a chance to reach the World Series for the first time since 1983.

A Baltimore team, dominated by single-digit players, handed a Washington team its worst defeat in the last 30 years of this long-running women's event, scoring a 15 1/2 -2 1/2 victory at Maryland Golf and CC in the Baltimore-Washington Women's team match.Four of the six matches were 3-0 wins, as Baltimore won the inaugural Kathleen Nes Memorial Trophy, placed in competition this year in memory of the former team captain who was killed in an automobile accident a year ago.The Midge Thursby-Sally Casey team built a commanding lead on the front nine, then could not hold off Linda Collins and Jennifer Lewis on the back nine in getting a 2-1 decision, and Jane DuBois-Cynthia Peters split with Cindy Carlin-Carmen Oelsner, 1 1/2 -1 1/2 , in the only non-sweeps.

Two years ago, when the Orioles unleashed the region's pent-up baseball passion with their first playoff run in years, they did it by walking baseball's version of a tightrope. They played a lot of nail-biters - winning 29 games by just one run. They snatched 16 of 18 in extra innings. They didn't nab a wild-card playoff spot until the last week of the season. This year has been a steadier march. These O's have seen no major streaks, good or bad, but they've won six or so games out of every 10, climbing to the top of the American League East, where they've been since early July.

Before the doors opened Saturday evening at SECU Arena, there was a line of people in front of the main entrance that stretched down the sidewalk. The Ball Up All-Stars, a team of streetball legends, stopped at Towson as part of their countrywide summer tour, and some fans waited 21/2 hours to make sure they had good seats. Demetrius Spencer, CEO of streetball tour Ball Up, said after the game that attendance gradually has increased since the team was formed in 2009. That trend was evident in the All-Stars' matchup against a team of Baltimore locals hoping to someday earn the same fame as their Ball Up opponents.

Several of the area's top defensive players took the field for Baltimore Saturday in the sixth annual Maryland Army National Guard Crab Bowl senior all-star game. After the first 10 minutes, however, that fact was anything but apparent. The Washington, D.C.-area team scored long touchdowns on two of its first three plays from scrimmage, putting the local squad in an early hole from which it never recovered in a 30-21 loss at McDaniel College. "We told the kids it's about big plays - who's going to step up and make them," Baltimore coach Sean Murphy, the coach of Archbishop Curley, said.

In the first five years of the Maryland Crab Bowl senior all-star game, the Baltimore-area team has failed to win consecutive games. This year's squad will have a chance start a winning streak after last year's beat the Washington, D.C.-area seniors 28-7, led by former Gilman safety Wyatt Dickerson's two first half interceptions and touchdowns from Stephen Scott (Poly), Garrett Bean (Westminster), Michael Anderson (Howard) and Isaiah Gills (Harford Tech). But with a new crop of seniors, Baltimore coach Sean Murphy - who led Archbishop Curley to a 9-2 record this year - said he expects the sixth Crab Bowl on Saturday be completely different.

One year, that's all he spent in Baltimore. But looking back, Roy Jefferson wouldn't trade that time with the Colts for anything in his football career. A first-team All-Pro wide receiver in Pittsburgh, Jefferson went from the Steelers, who'd won one game in 1969, to the Colts, whom he helped win Super Bowl V. "In 12 years in the NFL, that season was my favorite," he said. "Going from last place to being world champs? My God, there's no comparison. " Jefferson earned that Super Bowl ring.
