Shelby Mercer and her Century field hockey teammates needed only the motivation of a county championship to refocus Monday as they came off a loss that ended a nine-game winning streak. Knocking off No. 10 Westminster, which had won the past two county titles and six of seven overall, took precedence over everything else. So the No. 9 Knights started with a high level of intensity and held it throughout most of the game, beating the Owls, 2-1, to clinch the county title. Century (10-2-1, 6-0 county)

BOSTON -- As anniversaries go, they don't come more bitter than last night in Fenway Park's third base dugout. There, along with a chilled, delirious crowd of 30,903, the Orioles watched the Boston Red Sox complete an unlikely run for the AL wild card on the same day they had clinched the 1997 AL East title in Toronto."

As a four-year starter for the No. 2 River Hill girls soccer team, All-Metro forward Alex Hamer has scored more than her share of big goals. The one she put in Thursday against Atholton was right up there. The Hawks were celebrating Senior Night with a chance to wrap up their fourth straight Howard County championship and Hamer made it happen. Finding space between defenders, she ran on to a pass from Lauren Hessler and buried a shot from 14 yards away with 18 minutes left, giving River Hill a 1-0 win over the visiting Raiders.

Meghan White of Dulaney swept the 880-yard, one- and two-mile runs at the 16th annual Baltimore Metro Winter Invitational yesterday at Catonsville Community College.White's performance helped Dulaney (42 points) take second in the girls meet. Frederick captured the top spot with 54. The Lions can score more points when the pole vault competition takes place at Dulaney on Jan. 13 -- but cannot win because only one Lion will be there.Dulaney's boys edged Meade, 56-55, and clinched that title because no Mustangs pole vault.

At times this season, the inability to score over long stretches has hurt the Century girls basketball team. Last night against Frederick County's Urbana, it was a sizable drought in each half that doomed the host Knights in a 51-43 loss. The team, in its first varsity season, has shown maturity and clinched a tie for the Carroll County title. But shooting woes continue to be a problem. The Knights (11-7, 7-6 Central Maryland Conference) shot 24 percent from the field over the first three quarters.

FOOTBALL State regional playoffs Havre de Grace, Joppatowne and Fallston (possibly) DATES AND TIMES:: TBA OUTLOOK:: Havre de Grace and Joppatowne already clinched spots in the Class 1A playoffs heading into the final week of competition. The only question is who they will play. If the two teams meet in the regionals, it would be at Havre de Grace, where Joppatowne already scored a 20-0 victory earlier this year (a game the Mariners later forfeited because of an ineligible player). Fallston needed a win in the season's final game during the weekend to clinch the first playoff berth in school history.

DETROIT - In the aftermath of the Orioles' American League Division Series win over the Detroit Tigers, we wanted to share some quotes that may not have made it into print. The Orioles had plenty to say. Here are some of the team's key figures talking about Sunday's series-clinching win:  Buck Showalter on whether he could have predicted Nelson Cruz's impact: “Heavens, no.  We just felt like it was a good fit where he was, not necessarily in his career, but his mindset going into the season.  I think Nelson, not a vindictiveness, he knows things were self-inflicted.  He really wanted to establish himself, reestablish himself, and we thought we could provide a real good opportunity for him, and the sky might be the limit.  But we weren't that smart.

Pregame introductions: As the Orioles are introduced before Game 3, former Tigers outfielder Delmon Young does not get a friendly reception. And it's difficult to tell whether Tigers fans are booing Nelson Cruz because it sounds the same as when Orioles fans cheer him. National anthem: The Star-Spangled Banner is performed nicely by local a capella group, Vision Male Vocal Ensemble. Orioles fans make their presence known at the appropriate moment. Pregame ceremony: Former Detroit infielder Placido Polanco throws out the ceremonial first pitch, and the Tigers run a cool video tribute to the great stars of their storied history.

NEW YORK -- There was some consolation following the Orioles' 5-0 loss to the New York Yankees on Monday night. Following a night in which the Orioles managed just one hit, manager Buck Showalter was told that despite the loss, the club clinched home-field advantage in the American League Division Series with the Detroit Tigers' loss to the Chicago White Sox.

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.

Just chalk it up as one more thing that nobody could have imagined when this baseball season started. The Orioles and the Washington Nationals clinched their respective East division titles almost simultaneously. The Nats officially were the first major league team to lock up a title, getting the last out of a 3-0 victory over the second-place Atlanta Braves at 9:48 EDT in their 150 th game of the season. The Orioles would wrap up the AL East at 10:09 p.m., but they needed 151 games to stamp their ticket to the playoffs.

When the Orioles clinch their first division title in 17 years, outfielder Delmon Young will be in the middle of another postseason celebration - his sixth in six years with four different teams. “I've been fortunate enough to be on teams where you have good players, good managers, a good front office, good young players that come up and a knack for winning,” said Young, who has batted .288 with seven homers in 77 games with the Orioles through Monday. Heading into this season, the Cleveland Indians' Nick Swisher had the longest playoff streak among active players with six consecutive from 2008 to 2013, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

After the game, a brawl broke out when the teams lined up for the ceremonial handshake."Something like that, especially when it involves media coverage, the MSA certainly will step in and do something, and I think city officials will do the same," Savage said.

All the postseason math - all the talk of magic numbers and scoreboard watching - is now a thing of the past. Just one win now separates the Orioles and their first American League East division title since 1997. Opening up their three-game series with the second-place Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night at Camden Yards, the Orioles' path to the postseason was simple: Win two of the games and punch a ticket to the playoffs. And the Orioles took one humongous step Monday toward winning the division with their 5-2 win over Toronto, giving the club an opportunity to clinch a division title with a win Tuesday.

The Orioles lost Saturday and the Toronto Blue Jays won. That means the Orioles' magic number - the combination of wins and Toronto Blue Jays losses - for clinching the American League East stays at five. To be able to clinch without having to sweep the Blue Jays in their three-game series starting Monday, the Orioles would need to win Sunday (or get some outisde help from the Tampa Bay Rays this week). The earliest the Orioles can clinch is Tuesday. Basically, if the Orioles have a magic number of four entering the Toronto series, then so long as the Orioles win two of three against Toronto, they eliminate the Blue Jays.
