The Cubs settled on Mike Quade as the team's manager after an impressive late-season audition, agreeing to a two-year contract with a club option for 2013. Quade took over as the Chicago skipper on Aug. 23 following Lou Piniella's abrupt retirement the day before and led the Cubs to a 24-13 record over the season's final 37 games, the second-best mark during that span. The 53-year-old Quade completed his eighth season with the organization. He previously served as the team's third-base coach for nearly four seasons before replacing Piniella.

CHICAGO -- Being swept out of the Windy City this weekend by a Chicago Cubs team already auditioning for 2015 roster spots didn't sit well with Orioles manager Buck Showalter. By the end of their 2-1 loss to the Cubs on Sunday afternoon, the Orioles had seen enough of historic Wrigley Field. Held hitless by former teammate Tsuyoshi Wada for six innings, they managed just one hit overall on the day. The Orioles (73-55) left Chicago having scored just one run -- Steve Pearce's seventh-inning solo home run, which broke up Wada's no-hit bid -- over 16 innings after play resumed Saturday following a three-hour, nine-minute rain delay.

Four lion cubs were born at the National Zoo in Washington on Sunday, less than two weeks after the first lion cubs born at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore made their public debut. The cubs, who have not yet been named, were born to 9-year-old African lion Shera after a seven-hour delivery, National Zoo officials said. The cubs and their mother appear to be healthy, and zoo staff are giving them space to bond. The litter was Shera's second and the fifth for the cubs' father, 8-year-old Luke.

CHICAGO -  Wrigley Field is known as the “Friendly Confines,” but the Orioles have had their share of challenges in two games this weekend here on Chicago's North Side. The Orioles waited through a 3-hour, 9-minute rain delay Saturday in a game that began in a heavy fog. And while this Orioles club has overcome its share of adversity - including the loss of catcher Matt Wieters and now third Manny Machado to season-ending injuries - over the course of the season, they have stumbled against a Cubs club that's out of the playoff race and motivated only by pride.

The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore announced the "bittersweet" news Thursday that its first-ever lion cubs had been born, but their mother had died of birth complications. Lioness Badu, just 31/2 years old, went into labor and gave birth to two cubs, a male and a female, last Thursday. When she showed signs of distress the next day during her attempt to deliver a third, the veterinary staff made the decision to perform a cesarean section. Two more cubs were delivered but neither survived.

The Rays are excited about catcher Robinson Chirinos, acquired from the Cubs in the Matt Garza trade. He could push Kelly Shoppach, an October scapegoat for Rays fans, in a platoon with John Jaso, a left-handed hitter who emerged as the potential regular last season. … Daniel Bard is pushing the Red Sox to take a look at him as a starting pitcher after the acquisition of Bobby Jenks seemingly eliminated his role as heir apparent to Jonathan Papelbon . … Felix Pie appears to be a loser in the Orioles' signing of Vladimir Guerrero . Luke Scott , who was primarily a designated hitter in 2010, likely will be a regular in left field, which was split between Pie and Nolan Reimold . … Orioles general manager Andy MacPhail maintained his 25-year streak of not going to arbitration when he reached agreement with Jeremy Guthrie on the eve of a scheduled hearing.

The 10-week-old cubs, who lost their mother when she died from labor complications, are reported to be in good health. The zoo's website reports: "They are both healthy and enjoy playing with one another.

The Chicago Cubs and Baltimore apparel maker Under Armour will continue their marketing partnership after the baseball franchise dropped its lawsuit involving a multimillion-dollar sponsorship agreement. Under Armour announced Tuesday that it will remain the only advertiser on the Wrigley Field outfield wall. Two years ago, Under Armour became the first sponsor to place advertisements on two 7-foot-by-12-foot doors set into the ballpark's ivy-covered left- and right-field walls. In January, the Cubs accused Under Armour of reneging on a promised $10.8 million, five-year sponsorship agreement after its profits declined.

CHICAGO - The Orioles' game against the Chicago Cubs this afternoon was delayed more than three hours by rain, with the Orioles trailing 4-2 at the end of the second inning. Play resumed at 5:31 local time (6:31 in Baltimore). Two batters before the game was delayed, Cubs left fielder Chris Coghlan drove in three runs with a bases-clearing triple off Bud Norris in the second inning, capping a four-run second inning that has yet to be completed.  The Orioles will make every effort to complete today's game to avoid having to play a doubleheader on a getaway day Sunday.

CHICAGO -  Former Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta said it was different pitching against his old team Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field, facing so many familiar faces for the first time. Arrieta was a home-grown Oriole, once a can't-miss piece of the club's vaunted “calvary” group of young pitchers. But he struggled to find consistency in an Orioles uniform, leading to a trade that sent him to the Chicago Cubs in July 2013. But now Arrieta is flourishing with his new team, and on Friday he stifled the Orioles' bats, allowing just one run on four hits over seven innings in a 4-1 Orioles' loss to the Cubs, snapping the Orioles' four-game winning streak.

CHICAGO - Sometimes when you're in the middle of the baseball season, it takes a day off to take a step back and really look at what's going on. The Orioles will open their three-game interleague series against the Cubs at Wrigley Field Friday leading the American League East by nine games over the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays. They are a season-high 21 games over .500 and have the best record in baseball since June 30, going 30-13 in that span. Now take a step back to June 29, when the Orioles had just dropped three of four to the Tampa Bay Rays following a 12-7 loss at Camden Yards.

CHICAGO -- The Orioles will play against two familiar faces in their three-game series against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field this weekend. Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta is scheduled to start Friday's series opener, and left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada is set to start Sunday. Arrieta, who was traded to the Cubs along with reliever Pedro Strop in July 2013 for right-hander Scott Feldman and catcher Steve Clevenger, has emerged as the Cubs' ace. Arrieta struggled to maintain consistency with the Orioles, but he is 6-4 with a 2.61 ERA in 19 starts this season.

Maryland pitcher Jake Stinnett became the highest-drafted Terps player since 2007 when the Chicago Cubs selected him with the 45th overall pick in the second round in baseball's first-year player draft Thursday. Stinnett began his career at Maryland as a third baseman, but he saw his playing time limited as a sophomore and moved to pitching full-time as a junior. He joined the team's starting rotation last season, and vaulted his way into consideration for a high draft pick with a strong senior season for the Terps . He leaped  onto the radar March 1 with a no-hitter against Massachusetts and continued his dominant senior season when he struck out a career-high 14 against North Carolina State on March 21. The right-hander, whose fastball sits in the mid-90s and is complemented by an 82-84 mph slider and a developing changeup, is 7-6 with a 2.65 ERA in 112 innings.

Well, we have made it to Memorial Day. Students are graduating, pools are open and we have our first "Orioles have interest in trading for ... " story. I love annual traditions. This report comes out of CBS Chicago - that the Orioles are interested in Chicago Cubs right-hander Jeff Samardzija, a free agent after the 2015 season who is 1-4 with a 1.68 ERA in 11 starts this season. The Orioles were interested in Samardzija this winter and certainly haven't lost that interest since the 29-year-old has posted the second-best ERA for a major league starter so far this season.

So it was no surprise to state wildlife managers that for the second time in three years, the pregnant sow chose to hibernate and give birth under the back porch of a high-end Deep Creek Lake vacation home. And for a second time, Harry Spiker came to evict her and her family. No hard-hearted landlord, Spiker is chief bear biologist for the Department of Natural Resources.

"There were a lot of gasps, and 'Oh my God, how cutes,'" said Jane Ballentine, a zoo spokeswoman. "I like to call it the big-smile reaction - people just pointing and smiling and laughing.
