After sandwiching a closer-than-expected 27-20 decision over Centennial Conference rival Susquehanna on Sept. 13 with fairly dominant wins against Randolph-Macon and Moravian, Johns Hopkins encountered its first important test of the season Saturday with a road trip to Muhlenberg, which had captured seven league titles in the last 13 years. The Blue Jays left with more than a passing grade as they scored the game's first 21 points en route to a 42-26 victory. They improved to 4-0 overall and 3-0 in the conference and gave coach Jim Margraff a measure of comfort about his team's potential.

The Orioles sent a team devoid of starters to Dunedin to face the Blue Jays on Wednesday afternoon. But the game still had plenty of roster spot ramifications with left-hander Dana Eveland on the mound still competing for a starting rotation spot. Eveland, who had thrown just nine innings this spring and most recently two single-inning stints, allowed three runs on six hits over four innings, his longest spring outing, in the Orioles' 9-3 loss to the Blue Jays at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium.

TORONTO -- Moments after their 1-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, the Orioles finally found out who they would face in the American League Division Series. It had been a 12-day wait since the Orioles clinched the AL East. But inside the visiting clubhouse of the Rogers Centre, as the Orioles packed their bag for the trip home to Baltimore - it wasn't baseball, but NFL football on the televisions. The Orioles believe they are ready for the Detroit Tigers, who will travel to Camden Yards to open the ALDS on Thursday.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons thought his team had a real chance to make a move on the Orioles in the American League East race coming back from the All-Star break. The Blue Jays were four games out of first place, but they were facing three struggling teams, two at home, while the Orioles had to start on the West Coast with the Oakland Athletics, the Los Angeles Angels and the Seattle Mariners. The Orioles went 6-4 on that trip, won five of their next seven games and then took two of three from the Blue Jays in Toronto.

A night after being shut out for the first time in 49 games, the Orioles have brought their bats in their series finale against the Blue Jays. The Orioles have hit six homers tonight after seven innings, including three in the five-run fifth, to build up a 10-2 lead. Their six homers is the most they've hit since clubbing six in a 10-6 win over the Yankees on Sept. 6. In the fifth, Jim Thome hit his first homer at Camden Yards as an Oriole, the 19th of his career here, to tie the game at 2. Three batters later, Manny Machado went deep to left for his his fifth career homer.

TORONTO - Much bigger goals lie ahead for the Orioles, and their final regular-season series here is less about winning games than about fine-tuning for the postseason. Still, the Orioles don't want to trudge to the postseason. Following their 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre on Saturday, the Orioles have lost three consecutive games for the first time since being swept at Wrigley Field five weeks ago, and for just the second time since the All-Star break. The loss also ensured that the Orioles will finish the regular season with just their third road series loss since the break.

TORONTO - Earning home-field advantage throughout the postseason was the Orioles' final goal of the regular season, but since winning the American League East 10 days ago, their greater focus was positioning themselves for a deep postseason run. They chased the Los Angeles Angels down to the final three days of the regular season for the American League's best record, but following the Orioles' 4-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday night...

In the past month, Johns Hopkins has routed Randolph-Macon (42-3 on Sept. 6) and Moravian (33-14 on Saturday). But the Blue Jays also had a 27-20 win over Centennial Conference opponent Susquehanna on Sept. 13 that was closer than expected. So which game is an accurate indicator of the Blue Jays' potential? Johns Hopkins coach Jim Margraff isn't sure. “I still think we're a work in progress,” he said Wednesday morning. “If we play a clean game with no turnovers and minimize big plays defensively, we can play with most people and certainly in our conference.

The sweet smell of celebration -- an odorous combination of champagne and beer -- still lingered inside the home clubhouse of Camden Yards one day after the Orioles wrapped up the American League East title. Backed by a two-homer game from Steve Pearce, there was no hangover Wednesday night as the Orioles swept the second-place Toronto Blue Jays with a 6-1 victory in front of an announced 37,537 giving the club its 10th win in the last 11 games. “That's what we do,” Pearce said of returning strong the day after clinching the division.

Johns Hopkins' football team is off to a 2-0 start for the fourth consecutive year, but this fall's beginning felt differently than in previous seasons. After an overpowering 42-3 victory over Randolph-Macon on Sept. 6, the Blue Jays merely outlasted Susquehanna, 27-20, in Saturday's Centennial Conference opener. Johns Hopkins needed an interception by senior safety Ryan Rice and a fumble caused by Rice that was recovered by junior cornerback Curtis Antrum to overcome four turnovers (two interceptions and two fumbles)

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.

Somehow, some way, the Orioles are the 2014 American League East champions. With the embattled Ubaldo Jimenez going five innings for the victory and scrap-heap addition Jimmy Paredes hitting a solo homer and cut-and-re-signed first baseman Steve Pearce smashing a three-run blast, the Orioles won Tuesday night's clincher, 8-2, over the Toronto Blue Jays the way they've done it all year. Power, good pitching and a pass-the-baton offense - which included a three-run triple by scorching newcomer Alejandro De Aza in the seventh to put the game and title out of reach.

Toronto Blue Jays rookie right-hander Marcus Stroman, who threw a head-high, 92-mph fastball behind Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph in the sixth inning Monday, said Tuesday that he meant no harm to Joseph and doesn't want to be known as a head hunter. The sense was that it was a purpose pitch because Joseph stepped on Jose Reyes' hand on a play at the plate in the previous inning. “Obviously, I've been thinking about it a lot,” Stroman said. “The last thing I would ever want to do is throw at somebody's head, that's not my intention at all. I'm sorry that the ball slipped out of my hand and got away from me in the head region.
