THE consecutive games streak that Cal Ripken Jr. ended Sunday had become a metaphor for the Orioles' 1998 season: Something with great promise and anticipation that had somehow gone sour.Mr. Ripken's eclipse three years ago of a baseball record that many believed would never be broken was hailed as a symbol of the American work ethic. But as The Streak continued, he was criticized as "selfish" for not wanting to take a day off. This derision came in spite of the fact that he continued to be a superb gloveman; a solid, if no longer spectacular, hitter and a model for his teammates, a couple of whom followed his cue to play nearly the entire season.

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.

The Streak died last night of natural causes. It was 2,632.Cal Ripken, who has played with grace and grit for a generation without daring to miss a game, stepped into manager Ray Miller's office shortly before last night's game against the New York Yankees and asked the unimaginable. He asked for the night off.Sixteen years after Earl Weaver penned his name on the lineup card on May 30, 1982, Ripken did what only he could do. Recognizing the time had come for him to let go of one of the game's most impressive records, he sat on the bench as the Orioles took the field for their final home game of the season.

"We were really pumped up for this game," George said.

McDonogh turned the ball over on its first three possessions against visiting Notre Dame Prep on Wednesday, then quickly settled down and blew out the Blazers in an Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference matchup. The top-ranked Eagles reeled off six unanswered goals in just under four minutes after the shaky start, then added four more in just over two minutes during a 15-goal first half in a 21-14 victory over No. 3 Notre Dame Prep. The goals came fast and in bunches for McDonogh (10-0, 7-0)

As his team prepares for a much-needed home game Wednesday night after two bad road losses, Maryland men's basketball coach Mark Turgeon says his players must pull out of their "funk" and focus on the big picture. In the big picture, Turgeon says, the Terps are 2-2 in the conference. They may not feel like a .500 team after losses of 20 points and 24 points, respectively, to Pittsburgh and Florida State. “Guys got to get themselves out of the funk,” Turgeon said Monday on the ACC's media conference call.

As an exhausted and deflated group of Ravens filed out of the visiting locker room at Soldier Field Sunday following a 23-20 overtime loss to the Chicago Bears, they could take solace in one thing.. They were going home and they'd get to stay there for awhile. With a 4-6 record, the Ravens' playoff hopes now hinge on the team's ability to protect its home field, which is one thing that they've done pretty well this season. The Ravens will play three games at M&T Bank Stadium over the course of 15 days, starting this Sunday against the New York Jets (5-5)

Orioles lefty Zach Britton felt his pitches were working so well on Monday night that he could last deep into the evening, save his bullpen and pick up his second consecutive win. Instead, things inexplicably snowballed on Britton and the Orioles in the sixth inning, and by the time he walked off the mound, the Orioles were on their way to a 5-2 loss to the Cleveland Indians and their fourth consecutive defeat. “[My stuff] was good, but you'd like to carry that six, seven innings so it's not good,” said Britton, who allowed five consecutive Indians to reach base in the sixth.

The Mount St. Mary's team that pulled off impressive victories over Bucknell and Delaware in February seems like a distant memory now. That's because the Mountaineers have dropped their last four contests, including opening play in the Northeast Conference with back-to-back losses to Sacred Heart and Quinnipiac. The team's numbers have precipitously declined since diving into the conference schedule. The offense is averaging more than three goals fewer (6.5 goals from 10.7), the defense is just as porous (13 goals from 13.3)
