September's full moon arrives at 9:38 p.m. Monday , known as both the Corn and Harvest moon. American Indians named it the Corn moon for coinciding with the crop's harvest, whereas the Harvest moon can fall in September or October, depending on which full moon is closest to the autumnal equinox, Sept. 23 this year. It is the third of three consecutive "supermoons," as it coincides with lunar perigee, when the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit. Such a coincidence can make the moon look larger and brighter than when full moons are closer to apogee, their furthest point from Earth, though it can be hard to tell with the naked eye. The celestial wonders don't stop there -- next month's full moon is not far from being considered a supermoon, and it coincides with a lunar eclipse that can give the moon a reddish hue, dubbed a "Blood Moon.

Calvert Hall's football team is fully recovered from an injury-riddled 2013 season. The Cardinals proved as much in Friday night's 35-24 win over No. 3 Franklin, the defending state Class 3A champion that returned 18 starters. After Calvert Hall won last year's inaugural meeting between the schools, 24-14, the Indians were determined to take their first win over a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference team, but the Cardinals scored 15 points in the final 6:55 - a safety and rushing touchdowns by Tim Smith and Kevin Thomas - to put the game away.

His consecutive-innings streak ended in 1987. So did the warm feelings that accompanied his father's hiring as Orioles manager. The cold reality for Cal Ripken and his teammates was a sixth-place finish in the American League East, with a 67-95 record that at the time was the third worst in franchise history. Ripken batted only .252, his lowest average in six full seasons. Once as dependable as a sunrise, Ripken hit .229 after May 16. He still drove in 98 runs, the first player other than Eddie Murray to lead the club in that category during the 1980s, and hit 27 homers.

Let's be honest. The hardest thing about evaluating the Orioles organization at the nonmathematical halfway point in the 2014 season is trying to do that without depending on the two most obvious measuring sticks. It would be easy to simply look at the American League East standings and the Orioles' strong performance over the past few weeks and give the club an "A" for overcoming several major obstacles to take control of the division. And it's always tempting to grade on a curve that takes into account just how unsuccessful this team was for so long.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Despite the best efforts of Texas Rangers slugger Adrian Beltre, who seems to be a thorn in the side of the Orioles every time the teams meet, the Orioles emerged from Wednesday's back-and-forth game with their fourth straight win. The Orioles' 6-5 victory over the Rangers earned a series win here in Texas and guaranteed that they would complete their three-city, 10-game road trip with at least a .500 record. The Orioles (30-27) have scored 27 runs with 50 hits over their last four games.

HOUSTON - Believe it or not, this might not be the best time to play the Houston Astros. Yes, they still have the worst record in the American League, but bad teams with surging confidence are still dangerous, especially when an opponent leaves a game dangling within reach. That's what happened on Thursday night, when the Orioles gave the Astros hope until Houston's rookie phenom George Springer could give his team the big hit it needed. After Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez grinded out a quality start, reliever Preston Guilmet allowed a tie-breaking, two-run homer in the seventh inning, sending the Orioles to a 3-1 loss in front of 22,884 at Minute Maid Park.

The Orioles offense received the wake-up call it needed in the fourth inning of Wednesday afternoon's series finale when Detroit Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander threw a 94-mph fastball behind designated hitter Nelson Cruz. The pitch appeared to be retribution for Monday's series opener, when Orioles right-hander Bud Norris hit Torii Hunter in the ribs in the eighth inning after allowing a two-run homer to Ian Kinsler, prompting both dugouts and bullpens to empty. Both benches were warned Wednesday after Verlander nearly hit Cruz, and the pitch injected some life into a sleepy Orioles team that had been scoreless for 12 straight innings.

A year after Towson found itself as the No. 3 seed in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament before embarking on upsets of second-seeded Drexel and top-seeded Penn State to qualify for the NCAA postseason, the Tigers (8-6 overall and 2-3 in the league) are the No. 3 seed again with a semifinal date on Wednesday at Drexel (10-4, 4-1). It sounds like a case of déjà vu, and coach Shawn Nadelen said he hasn't had to revive last year's memory with the players. “The guys are kind of reminding themselves,” he said on Monday.

Sophomore Ben McCarty has started in the midfield for Towson in the past two games, and coach Shawn Nadelen confirmed that the South Carroll graduate will open Wednesday's Colonial Athletic Association semifinal at No. 17 Drexel with junior midfielders Justin Mabus and Greg Cuccinello. Nadelen said the coaches bumped McCarty up to the first line and moved freshman Ryan Drenner (Westminster) down to the second unit to give the offense more options. McCarty has scored one goal on seven shots in his two starts, while Drenner has scored two goals on four shots.

On the field: Scott Erickson was staring at his first defeat since July 12 until Rafael Palmeiro homered in the eighth inning to wipe out a 4-3 deficit and leave the right-hander with his third no-decision in his past four starts.In the dugout: Manager Davey Johnson didn't start center fielder Brady Anderson for the second consecutive game to rest a sore right knee, though he inserted him as a pinch hitter for DH Chris Hoiles in the eighth inning. Jeff Reboulet, who was kept out of Saturday's game because of a slight muscle pull in his right side, started at shortstop to give Mike Bordick a day off.In the clubhouse: When Johnson was hired before last season, he predicted he would be the manager to end Cal Ripken's consecutive-games streak.

WIMBLEDON, England - Let's see this again. Let's see Andy Roddick throw down serves and bring the volley, the surprise volley that kept Roger Federer flummoxed for a while. Let's see Federer curl that lob over the long reach of Roddick or crack that one-handed backhand across the court until the ball lands on the chalk and causes a cloud of white dust to blow in the wind. Let's see Roddick wind up and smack that forehand hard, harder, hardest. Let's see more of the Federer choreography, the footwork on the grass, which always had Federer moving in the right direction to chase down Roddick's blasts.

For the second straight year, Frostburg State finished fourth in the Capital Athletic Conference, earning for the program the right to play host to a league tournament quarterfinal. Last spring, the fourth-seeded Bobcats fell, 11-6, to No. 5 seed Mary Washington. Coach Tommy Pearce is hoping for a vastly different result when St. Mary's visits on Wednesday. “It's a great achievement,” Pearce said of hosting a conference tournament game. “We did have that happen last year, and last year, we beat Mary Washington and then they came back up that following Wednesday and beat us. So we know it's really hard to beat a team twice and St. Mary's is a good team.

Everything from here on is "icing on the cake" for McDonogh's No. 1 girls lacrosse team after it broke one last record Saturday. With their 105th straight win, 15-8 over North Harford, the Eagles added what is believed to be the national mark for consecutive games without a loss to their swelling record book, surpassing Loch Raven's 104-game unbeaten streak between 1973 and 1982. Then, the Eagles won No. 106 over previously undefeated No. 7 Mount Hebron, 15-7, to take the title of the Mount Hebron Fight for Five Tournament at Cedar Lane Park.
