Good morning, Orioles fans. Today your team could clinch its first postseason berth in 15 years. While that should brighten your morning, rain in Texas yesterday made the Orioles' clinching scenarios a bit cloudier than they needed to be heading into today's home finale against Boston. With their game washed out yesterday, the Rangers and Angels will play a day-night doubleheader beginning at 1:05 p.m. our time today. If the Orioles win (it's a 1:35 p.m. first pitch here) and the Angels lose one of their two games, the O's will guarantee at least a wild-card berth.

After the Orioles drained bottles of champagne inside the home clubhouse of Camden Yards, leaving behind not a dry spot in a room littered with corks and empty beer bottles, they ran toward the dugout for a postgame party that Baltimore had long awaited. They celebrated their first American League East division title in 17 years Tuesday night after their 8-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays with their hometown fans at Camden Yards. Their coronation as newly recrowned kings of the AL East came in front of a sea of orange -- an announced 34,297 -- entirely on its feet, standing as right-hander Tommy Hunter closed out the game with a grounder to first base.

The tennis courts at The Suburban Club in Pikesville are typically empty during weekday afternoons, with many of the usual patrons busy at work until they can head to the country club for some exercise. It was in this solitude, on a partly cloudy Monday earlier this month, that Xander Centenari slogged through a practice match, striking balls with a powerful forehand stroke when he saw an opportunity to win a point. Unlike other club members, Centenari doesn't have to budget time between work and tennis.

Head coach John Harbaugh and several players quickly offered the reminder after today's embarrassing 34-17 loss to the Denver Broncos that the Ravens still have everything that they wanted to accomplish this season right in front of them. Then, several hours later, the Ravens finally put one goal behind them, courtesy of their biggest rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers. With the Steelers' 27-24 overtime loss to Dallas, the Ravens clinched a playoff berth despite being in the midst of a three-game losing streak.

The Blast made more than a statement Sunday night; it gave a speech to the rest of the Major Indoor Soccer League. With perhaps its most impressive team effort of the season, the Blast dominated the second-place Milwaukee Wave, 20-9, at 1st Mariner Arena , clinched a berth in the playoffs and took a giant step toward finishing first and gaining a first-round bye and the home floor for the championship game. It was the seventh consecutive victory for Baltimore (13-3), which has not lost since Jan. 16, and ensured the team would hold the tiebreaker for first place should it come to that at the end of the season.

Ask Towson football coach Rob Ambrose what he thinks of senior wide receiver Tom Ryan and you're likely to get a quiet, reflective smile, a few comments about the player's heart and determination, and a story about cookies. The story, as Ambrose tells it, goes something like this: After every win, the coach's wife bakes cookies for the nearly 100-player team. The treats are a hit with the players, Ryan especially. Ambrose can remember one night around Christmas last year when he came home to find his wife practically crying.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- For most of their first-ever NCAA super regional, Maryland has fought off rallies by Virginia that, with every base runner, became more and more likely to produce a big inning. The Terps survived in Game 1 on Saturday, but they couldn't overcome Virginia's 17-hit barrage or the three-run seventh inning that broke open the Cavaliers' 7-3 win Sunday at a sold-out Davenport Field. “Good teams like Virginia will take those kind of base hits and turn them into good things,” Maryland coach John Szefc said.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Maryland baseball takes the field Sunday seeking a two-game sweep of rival Virginia in the NCAA super regional, and the stakes of Sunday's game, the second of a best-of-three series, are simple. A win by Maryland ends Virginia's season and sends the Terps to their first ever College World Series. A win by Virginia forces a decisive third game Monday afternoon. It's safe to say the Terps are going to go for it today, with coach John Szefc saying it was all hands on deck for his pitching staff.

Maryland baseball coach John Szefc has insisted ahead of the team's first NCAA Super Regional appearance Saturday in Virginia that his squad is comfortable and loose, despite having entered the year with no postseason experience. It certainly helps that his squad is traveling to the familiar Davenport Field, home of Atlantic Coast Conference rival Virginia. "It's kind of a cool way to leave the ACC, playing them one last time," said junior outfielder Charlie White, who was named the most outstanding player of last weekend's Columbia, S.C., regional.

Port officials are sounding out potential investors to help fund a $120 million project to deepen a berth at the Seagirt Marine Terminal - a project they say is needed to accommodate bigger ships passing through a to-be-widened Panama Canal. If the initiative moves forward, it would be the first time the state has turned to private investors to finance improvements at the public terminals of the Helen Delich Bentley Port of Baltimore. The Maryland Port Administration said it needs to add a 50-foot-deep berth at Seagirt to stay competitive as the shipping industry moves to larger vessels.

CHESTER, PA. - Fourth-seeded Notre Dame can take all the guesswork out of its resume for the NCAA tournament by upsetting third-seeded Syracuse in Sunday's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament final at PPL Park. But coach Kevin Corrigan knows the Fighting Irish (7-5) did themselves a huge favor by edging top-seeded Maryland, 6-5, in Friday night's semifinal. “We had our backs to the wall a little bit,” Corrigan said. “I don't think if we lost this game, we're out of the tournament.

No suspense remains for Navy's hopes of qualifying for its first NCAA tournament since 2009. The team must win three games in the Patriot League tournament, beginning with Tuesday's quarterfinal at Lehigh. With a 4-8 record, the Midshipmen have no shot at an at-large bid, but coach Rick Sowell insisted that there is no talk about anything beyond Tuesday's game. “Right now, it's Lehigh,” he said Monday afternoon. “You win, you advance. You lose, you go home. At this point, any conversation about winning three games, that just hasn't come up. That's not our focus at this point in time.
