If Derek Jeter could have scripted his perfect ending at Yankee Stadium, it would have looked a lot like what actually happened Thursday night, but it wouldn't have happened if the Orioles hadn't worked so hard on the rewrite. The Orioles had to rally from a three-run deficit in the top of the ninth inning just to give Jeter a chance to get back to the plate, and they did it with dramatic home runs by Adam Jones and Steve Pearce. It was probably the first time in history a sellout crowd in the Bronx was happy to see the opposing team stage a huge last-inning comeback.

The hit that broke open the National League Wild Card Game on Wednesday night revealed an almost unbelievable baseball postseason statistic. Brandon Crawford's fourth-inning grand slam for the San Francisco Giants was the first four-run homer hit by a shorstop in the postseason. Ever. Crawford -- the 24-year-old infielder who has hit 26 home runs in 511 regular season games -- has more postseason grand slams than one guy who most Orioles fans love (Cal Ripken Jr.) and another they begrudgingly grew to respect over a frustrating 20 years (Derek Jeter)

Admirers of Yankees most eligible bachelor Derek Jeter could be cheering a World Series victory in November -- then mourning his marriage a few days later. The New York Post reports Sunday that the star shortstop and girlfriend Minka Kelly will be married Nov. 5 on Long Island. Acting on a tip, a reporter posing as a bride-to-be spotted an entry reading "JETER wedding" on the calendar for the Oheka Castle in Huntington, N.Y. Sales manager Rick Bellando insisted that a celebrity wouldn't be listed under his real name when the reporter pointed it out. The Oheka Castle is the second-largest private residence in the United States and recently hosted the wedding of one of the Jonas Brothers.

TORONTO -- Even though Orioles third basemen entered the final regular-season series having committed five errors over the past seven games, manager Buck Showalter isn't concerned about the position heading into the postseason. Defense has been one of the keys to the Orioles' success over the past three seasons. But since they lost American League Platinum Glove winner Manny Machado for the season following right-knee surgery in August, the club has struggled to find a steady replacement.

Guess it's not so surprising that a Yankee wanted a taste of the Bronx before suiting up against the Orioles Tuesday. Derek Jeter and Andruw Jones stopped by Chazz: A Bronx Original , the Fells Point restaurant owned by actor Chazz Palminteri, writer and star of "A Bronx Tale. " In the middle of a series against Baltimore, Jeter and Jones ordered a veal meatball, a coal-fired burrata pizza, chicken parmesan and shrimp served over polenta. Considering they were sorta feeding the enemy, the Chazz PR people were thrilled about the star encounter, sending out a press release about the lunch, including the shot of the Yankees smiling with restaurant general manager (and, they add, "huge Yankees fan")

He is Mr. November, and every other month in which Major League Baseball is played. He has more hits than Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, a higher career batting average than Mickey Mantle and a higher postseason average than Joe DiMaggio. And it won't be long before Derek Jeter is a new lord of New York Yankees lore. With six more hits, the shortstop will become the first player to collect 3,000 hits while playing exclusively with the most storied franchise in baseball. He resumed his pursuit Monday against the Cleveland Indians after spending the last three weeks on the disabled list with a strained right calf.

It's really not a big deal. Nothing, truly, can be a big deal in an All-Star Game with 79 All-Stars. But you can't look at the fastballs Adam Wainwright threw to Derek Jeter last night in comparison to the cutting, diving offerings to Mike Trout one batter later and, at the very least, not notice a difference. Wainwright admitted, then un-admitted, that he grooved one for Derek Jeter's leadoff double in last night's All-Star Game, and it's honestly unclear who cared. Sure, Twitter kind of went crazy and I definitely noticed and texted some buddies about it. But I can't understand why it mattered.

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter passed Cal Ripken Jr. for sole possession of 13th on the all-time hits list with 3,185 with a first-inning double Friday night against the Chicago White Sox. Ripken released a statement saying: “Congratulations to Derek on passing me on the all-time hits list. Derek has been such a special player for such a long time and I am happy to see him continue to play at a high level. He represents the game and the Yankees wonderfully and I hope that he continues to play and continues to give all of us baseball fans great memories.”

Because the Yankees are in town, and shortstop Derek Jeter is retiring at season's end, Orioles manager Buck Showalter fielded questions about Jeter to start his daily media briefing. Showalter was Jeter's first manager in New York. And Showalter said all the right things -- things he has said for years -- about how Jeter does everything the right way and knows how to treat people. But Showalter also had a hilarious aside that I'm sure will make some Orioles fans chuckle. Each team is giving Jeter a going-away present; last year, the Orioles gave retiring closer Mariano Rivera a sculpted broken bat. So what should the Orioles give Jeter?

NEW YORK -- Over the past two decades, there probably has been no player who has caused the Orioles more heartbreak than Derek Jeter. And in his final game at Yankee Stadium, he found a way to beat them one last time. This wasn't the infamous "Jeffrey Maier home run" in the 1996 American League Championship Series or those 14 straight losing seasons in which Jeter and the New York Yankees used the Orioles as a division punching bag. Times have changed. When the teams took the field for Jeter's final game wearing pinstripes at Yankee Stadium on Thursday night, it was the newly-crowned AL East champion Orioles -- not the Yankees -- who were playing with something at stake.

NEW YORK - It is scheduled to rain here throughout the day, and there's a 70 percent chance of rain when Thursday night's series finale against the New York Yankees is supposed to begin. That's throwing the locals into a frenzy because of the possibility that Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's final home game could be rained out. If the game cannot be played Thursday, it likely wouldn't be made up if it's a meaningless game in the standings. The Orioles are still chasing the American League's best record - and home-field advantage throughout the postseason - but they're running out of games to catch up with the Los Angeles Angels.

NEW YORK - When the Yankee Stadium crowd began chanting New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's name after his final at-bat Wednesday after a routine groundout - trying to coax the future Hall of Famer out of the dugout - Orioles manager Buck Showalter knew it wasn't happening. It wasn't the right time. “He had a tough at-bat, a ground ball back to the pitcher,” Showalter said, “I told a couple of our guys, 'He ain't coming out of the dugout. Just watch.' That's all you need to know about Derek because it didn't fit in the context of what was [happening]

NEW YORK - The Orioles go into Wednesday afternoon's game against the New York Yankees still trailing the Los Angeles Angels by 2 1/2 games  -- two games in the loss column - for the top record in the American League and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Orioles have five games left to play; the Angels have four. After the Orioles were held to one hit Monday, they responded with 17 hits in Tuesday's 5-4 win . Seeing leadoff hitter Nick Markakis get four hits, including a two-run homer - his first hits since returning from taking a pitch in the right shoulder - was a good sign for the Orioles.

Kelly Johnson has worn an Orioles uniform for just two weeks, but he already owns his own little part of Oriole Magic. Derek Jeter, who was Johnson's teammate for most of this season with the New York Yankees, was the main attraction this weekend in his final regular-season visit to Camden Yards. As has been the case in Jeter's other final stops this season, the Orioles pretty much rolled out the orange carpet for him, giving him a U.S. Navy captain's hat, a bushel of steamed crabs, an oversized crab mallet, a custom-made cake and a $10,000 donation in his name to the Miracle League of Manasota (Fla.)

So let me tell you about my experiences at Camden Yards before I respond to the recent commentary suggesting Orioles fans should not cheer for Derek Jeter in his last appearance at the ballpark ( "Good riddance, Jeter," Sept. 11). I went to a game there in the early 1990s when a friend of mine invited me and one-handed pitcher Jim Abbott and outfielder Danny Tartabull were on the Yankees. My friend who is a Yankee fan invited two Orioles fans unbeknownst to me. Jim Abbott was throwing a shutout and the Yankees were up 6-0 by the third inning.
