Comebacks and eighth innings aside, one of the most pleasing sights in the first two games of the American League Division Series has to be that the Orioles' stellar defense is back. Orioles manager Buck Showalter makes it clear that it's your glove that moves you up through the minor league system and it's defense that keeps you in the majors. He uses Manny Machado, Jonathan Schoop and Ryan Flaherty as examples that the Orioles are willing to let players work through their offensive struggles as long as they are sound defensively.

Producing the big play always has been Antonio Freeman's specialty.Freeman's talent led to the unthinkable at Poly, where Augie Waibel, a proponent of 3-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust football, opened up the offense to get the ball to his wide receiver. Freeman was The Sun Offensive Player of the Year in 1989, when his 1,079 yards receiving led the state.Freeman is in a similar situation at Virginia Tech, which plays host to Maryland on Saturday. The Hokies' ground game is No. 5 in Division I-A, but when they want to go a long way in a short time, split end Freeman's role is magnified.

North Carroll wide receiver Zack Sherman has made a name for himself across Carroll County through four weeks of football this fall. Week 2, the Panthers (4-0, 1-0 county) took down Williamsport thanks to four touchdowns on four receptions and a county-record 294 yards from Sherman. Since then, he's made his mark on defense, and special teams as well - kicking a 31-yard field goal against Smithsburg that was the difference-maker. Sherman is undecided about where he'll attend college next fall, but is interested in pursuing either mathematics or accounting as a potential major.

Baltimore's fledgling music industry has had limited success. The few record companies based here have earned their 15 seconds of fame with mostly one-hit-wonders -- hardly enough to put the area on the map.But since Ravens wide receiver Michael Jackson based his Big Play Entertainment company on Biddle Street in August, he's taken slow, methodical steps to give the area a hefty chunk of the billion-dollar music industry.The young company is moving quickly in an attempt to make Baltimore a desirable entertainment haven.

VS. NEW YORK RANGERS* WHEN: Tonight, 7:35.* WHERE: Madison Square Garden.* TV/RADIO: Ch. 20; WCAO-AM 600.* OUTLOOK: Just when some began counting the Capitals out, they came roaring back with a stellar 3-2 win Tuesday night at the Capital Centre to even their best-of-seven series at 2-2. But they'll again need big play from Dale Hunter and Kevin Hatcher, whose bruising checks and aggressive play left the Rangers reeling. Goalie Don Beaupre also played well Tuesday after getting yanked in Sunday's ugly 6-0 defeat.

On a day when Towson State's chances of extending its season probably died, the Tigers lived by the big play.Long passes, long runs, long interception returns.So long, Wagner.Sophomore quarterback Kevin Smith passed for three touchdowns, including two to senior Amadi Eze, and the Tigers did their part to keep alive their playoff hopes with a 35-11 rout of Wagner at Minnegan Stadium in their final game before joining the Patriot League next season.Unfortunately for Towson State (6-4), it didn't have the final say in determining its fate.

Ravens safety James Ihedigbo surmised he could do one of two things as he walked to the sideline after Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green caught a Hail Mary pass that had deflected off his hands. He could hang his head after the "bone-head move" or he could make another big play - like the two he made earlier in Sunday's game - and help the Ravens escape with a victory. In overtime, with the Bengals going for it on fourth-and-2, Ihedigbo did the latter. After Giovani Bernard caught a short swing pass, Ihedigbo flew into the flat to deny Bernard the first down.

COLLEGE PARK - Three times last week, Ohio State defensive backs were left looking at the back of Cincinnati wide receiver Chris Moore's jersey as Moore crossed the goal line at the end of a long touchdown catch-and-run. Ohio State (3-1) is great in the front seven. The Buckeyes have experienced players at linebacker, and their defensive line may be as good as any in the country. The pass defense is Ohio State's "Achilles' heel," said Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer during a teleconference Tuesday.

Mount Saint Joseph's football team doesn't need a lot of time to score points. With Nevone McCrimmon in the backfield and Jimmy Moore, Jake Dahl, Calvin Montgomery, Nick Phelps, J.T. Uhler and Kyle Offerman up front, the No. 4 Gaels had no trouble getting off to a quick start at Loyola Blakefield on Saturday. On the Gaels' first play from scrimmage, McCrimmon raced 79 yards for the first of his four touchdowns. On the third play of the next drive, the senior running back scored from 24 yards out. In less than seven minutes, Mount Saint Joseph was well on its way to a 42-19 victory in the first Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference game for both teams.

The Ravens' already thin secondary was tested Thursday night when cornerback Asa Jackson suffered a second-quarter concussion and joined inactive cornerback Lardarius Webb on the sideline. Jackson's departure left the team with two active cornerbacks, but one was 2011 first-round pick Jimmy Smith, who locked down Pro Bowl wide receiver Antonio Brown and helped hold Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger without a touchdown for the first time in 30 games. “It was an unusual matchup, something I've never really done before in my career, even in college or high school, no matter what - just being a bigger guy on such a small, fast guy like [Brown]

Unlike Mark Turgeon's first three years at Maryland, when a lack of early-season road experience and not many tough non-league games left his men's basketball team a little ill-prepared for what it would face in the ACC, the Terps should be more battle-tested when they start play in the Big Ten. Unlike Maryland's final season in the ACC, most of the Big Ten's marquee programs will be coming to College Park. The 2014-15 schedule, which was unveiled Thursday night on the Big Ten Network, includes a previously announced first-round matchup against Arizona State in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City on Nov. 24 as well as a home game against longtime rival Virginia on Dec. 3 in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

Veteran defensive lineman Chris Canty has studied the tape of last season for months, searching for clues to determine why his first year with the Ravens wasn't more productive. Canty has reached a few conclusions through his self-scouting, seeing chances squandered to hit the quarterback and a need to become more durable. Canty finished with just 30 tackles, two sacks, four pass deflections and two forced fumbles last season. However, none of the sacks or forced fumbles were made during the final dozen games.

But all anyone remembers is what happened at the end.Earnest Byner gained 187 total yards and scored two touchdowns in the 1988 AFC championship game.Yet, The Fumble still haunts him."That's still one of the things I'm trying to free myself totally from," Byner said. "I'm sure I never will be totally free."The Cleveland Browns, trailing 38-31, were driving to tie the score when the Denver Broncos recovered Byner's fumble on their 3-yard line with 1: 12 left.

It already had surrendered more than 500 yards of Byrd Stadium real estate. It had bent at a 90-degree angle, but miraculously not splintered.The Wolfpack had called time out with 19 seconds left and Maryland parked on State's 14-yard line.In the huddle, State was trying to regroup against Maryland quarterback John Kaleo and the run-and-shoot offense.

Jamir Tillman learned early on not to overlook life after football. Tillman, a sophomore wide receiver at Navy, heard how his father Cedric began working as an accountant in Las Vegas during a six-year career in the National Football League that ended prematurely because of a back injury. "You never know when your last down of football is going to be," Tillman said. "I know coming here, it's not just about football, it's about your future and about being put around men that are going to develop you as a leader.

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.
