Despite yesterday's 4-3 loss to the Yankees, the Orioles can still earn a series win here in New York, which would mark the first time the O's have won all three series in the Bronx in a season since 1976. The Orioles will pin their hopes on right-hander Chris Tillman, who has won six of his past seven decisions and is coming off back-to-back quality starts. The Yankees have had success against Tillman. The top three hitters in the Yankees lineup -- Derek Jeter, Nick Swisher and Robinson Cano -- are hitting a combined .487 (19-for-39)

The Orioles are looking to complete a three-game sweep of the Yankees today at 1 p.m. Zach Britton (1-0) will make his fourth start of the year.   Britton is 1-1 in his career against New York in four starts. In his two starts at Yankee Stadium, he has allowed 13 runs, 10 earned, over 5.1 innings.   A win would give the Orioles their first three-game sweep of the Yankees in the Bronx since 1986, and it would mark the first time since 1980 that the O's have swept the Yankees and Red Sox on the road in the same season.

Actor Chazz Palminteri performed his one-man show, "A Bronx Tale," based on the 1993 film of the same name (which was, itself, based on the very same original one-man show), in Baltimore on Sunday ( "The 18 sides of Chazz Palminteri," Nov. 15). Its chief selling point, for most people, is the sense of "nostalgia" it seems to awaken, particularly among Italian Americans who grew up in mostly Italian neighborhoods in our nation's cities (e.g., Baltimore's Little Italy). As our Roman ancestors would have said, however, caveat emptor (let the buyer beware)

The 1968 football game between Baltimore's Morgan State and what was then Louisiana's Grambling College was a good one — a nail-biter that went down to the wire. But the history and sociology of the event are what truly matter. And hats off to CBS Sports for committing the resources to telling that story with so much sensitivity and cultural context in a documentary, "1st & Goal in the Bronx: Grambling vs. Morgan State, 1968," premiering 7 p.m. Wednesday on the CBS Sports Network.

NEW YORK -- As the son of a Bronx native, allow your friendly local columnist to explain the meaning of the term, "Bronx rules."When you knock down your opponent in a game of basketball, it's "Bronx rules."When you drill a receiver in a game of touch football, it's "Bronx rules."And when you reach over the wall to interfere with a potentially catchable fly ball in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series, it's "Bronx rules."The Orioles didn't get that call when a fan interfered with right fielder Mark McLemore on a controversial homer by Don Mattingly in 1993.

NEW YORK -- We took the subway to The Bronx, though everyone said this was dangerous. We wanted a peek at Yankee Stadium while there was still time. We left the stadium and walked up to the Grand Concourse, though everyone said this was suicidal. We wanted a glimpse of the old apartment house, whose time had long since passed.The apartment house was located at 1269 Grand Concourse. My grandmother raised two children there a long time ago, and my mother had moved back in with her when my father went off to the war, and I'd been born there a few months later.

It's a little early for the Reign of Terror to begin up in the Bronx, but I'll take my chuckles where I can find them. Steinbrenner the Lesser, the chip off the old block known as Hank, is in full-throttle Robespierre mode now that the Yankees are just 10-10 and 3 1/2 games out of first in the American League East (we can all hope that losing two of three to the Orioles also helped). Team co-chairman Hank is especially upset that Joba Chamberlain is still working out of the Yankees' bullpen rather than starting.

MEXICO CITY -- It was nearly 3 p.m., and a legislator wanted to talk a little longer about Social Security reforms. Other members of the Chamber of Deputies, Mexico's lower house of Parliament, wanted lunch. So they let their colleague have it."Put a lid on it!" they yelled. "Pinocchio! Go get paid!"Welcome to the Bronx, the name given to members of the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party -- the PRI -- who spend their time not legislating or debating but heckling speakers from other parties.

Eighteen characters, but only one actor. That's a lot of work for one guy, no matter how you slice it. But Chazz Palminteri isn't complaining, not in the least. After all, he's got no one to blame but himself. "A Bronx Tale" is all Palminteri's doing, a one-act, one-man autobiographical play about a young boy growing up in the Bronx and the two father figures who vie for his affections. One is his father, who wants nothing but the best for his son - and that includes a life sheltered as much as possible from the mean streets in which he's forced to grow up. The other's a mob boss who takes a liking to him, this kid who knows when to keep his mouth shut.

The last time Chazz Palminteri performed "A Bronx Tale" in Baltimore, he came away with a restaurant. It was during the 2009 national tour of his autobiographical, one-man show that Palminteri met the Vitale family, the Little Italy restaurateurs that would become his partners in Chazz: A Bronx Original , the Harbor East Italian restaurant that opened in June 2011.  Now, the Academy Award-nominated actor is bringing his Baltimore adventure...

Ten years after starting his business, C.R. Dynamics and Associates, Charles Ramos began to wonder if it was ever going to work. He was confident in his business plan and strategy, but it was taking a lot longer than he hoped to get his marketing and sales-support business off the ground. "I didn't think it would be as difficult as it was the first 10 years," said Ramos, a Columbia resident. "We were most tested in the fourth and fifth years," he said. "I didn't think I could do this any more - and then things happened.

That sigh of relief you heard a little after 4 on Sunday afternoon came from Orioles Nation - yes, there is one again - which had been watching the drama unfolding up in the Bronx with a mixture of dread and resignation. I don't even want to think about what it would have been like in this town today if the O's had been swept by the New York Yankees over the weekend. The moaning, the wailing, the gnashing of teeth - and that would have just been in the MASN booth. Instead, the Orioles pulled out a 2-1 win on Adam Jones' two-run shot in the ninth inning off the great Mariano Rivera, putting a little bounce in their step as they begin a seven-game home-stand before the All-Star break.

NEW YORK - When Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez takes the mound for Game 3 of the American League Division Series on Wednesday, , it will be the rookie's third start at Yankee Stadium. The 28-year-old Gonzalez, who signed as a minor-league free agent in February, has assembled impressive numbers in the Bronx, so getting the call from Orioles manager Buck Showalter to start the first game in New York had to be by design. In two starts, Gonzalez is 2-0 with a 2.63 ERA, allowing four earned runs and 10 hits over 13 2/3 innings.

"Rumble in the Bronx" may or may not make Jackie Chan as large a star in America as he is in Asia, but it certainly will appeal to a certain kind of person.That would be the person who a.) lives and b.) breathes.Chan is capable of making real movies, as his great Hong Kong drama "Police Story" demonstrated, but this one is hardly in that category. Consider it more a goof, a laugh, a platform for showing off the banty guy's awesome physical skills as martial artist and absolutely fearless stuntman.

BRONX, N.Y. -- Kevin P. Clark drove through his old haunts yesterday, where he spent four years as commander in two of the most violent and crime-infested police precincts in New York City. As he cruised through the Bronx in a Mercury SUV, Baltimore's new police commissioner combed the streets for criminals until he spotted a known drug dealer in a thick puffy jacket and a baseball cap standing alone on the sidewalk. Clark asked the man to come to his side of the street; the dealer refused.

Orioles third baseman Wilson Betemit has been on of the streakiest hitters in the Orioles lineup, but he's currently one of the hottest. Betemit, who saw his average dip to .248 just a week ago, enters tonight's series opener against Tampa Bay riding a club-high six game hitting streak. In that span, Betemit is hitting .458 (11-for-24) with 3 runs, 3 doubles, a home run and 3 RBIs in that stretch. He had four multihit games in his last six contests. Betemit was 7-for-11 in the Orioles' three-game series in the Bronx, where he spent nearly two years playing for the Yankees in 2007 and '08.
