Orioles closer Zach Britton prefers to pitch to contact, keep the ball on the ground with his heavy sinker and allow his defense to work behind him. But with the way the Kansas City Royals were getting on base - with dinks and bloops and swinging bunts - Britton could only shake his head after the Royals scored two runs in his decisive ninth-inning appearance. Britton was making good pitches, and drawing weak contact, but the Royals still were rounding the bases. Their 6-4 win in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series put the Orioles in an 0-2 hole in the best-of-seven series.

The presence of the break, made public in investigative documents released by the National Transportation Safety Board on Monday, further supports a conclusion many community members have been grappling with for nearly two years - that Elizabeth Conway Nass and Rose Louese Mayr, both 19, were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

British National-turned-terrorist's widow Margot Al-Harazi believes the latter, and has recently used her daughter Simone to acquire a doomsday device allowing her to control up to 10 U.S. Drones at one time. That is, unless Jack Bauer has anything to say about it. The following takes place between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. The mob Jack started provides enough of a diversion to allow Jack access into the U.S. embassy, where he chokes a security guard and steals his jacket.
