Too bad the Blast doesn't play all, or at least more, of its games against Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Florida. The East Division standings would probably look a whole lot different.Heading into tonight's game against the Milwaukee Wave at Baltimore Arena (7: 35), the Blast carries a record of 6-10, which gives the team the cellar, not only in the division but in the American Conference.In the East, however, the team has won all of its games against Philadelphia (three), split with Florida (2-2)

Ravens coach John Harbaugh joined the flood of congratulatory text messages delivered to Orioles manager Buck Showalter. The Orioles clinched their first American League East division title since 1997 on Tuesday night with a victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. Showalter visited Harbaugh at the Ravens' training complex last year and took part in a coin toss during a Ravens game at M&T Bank Stadium in 2012, when the Orioles qualified for the playoffs as a wild-card team. The Ravens won the Super Bowl after that season.

This was a soccer game of interrupted momentum on both sides.The Spirit had won four of its last five. The Philadelphia Kixx had dropped five of its last six.Both streaks were broken last night as the Kixx decisioned the Spirit, 17-11, before 4,709 at Baltimore Arena to regain sole possession of first place in the National Professional Soccer League's East Division.The Spirit, which inched into a tie for first with the Kixx with its 20-11 win last week in Philadelphia, dropped a full game behind with an 8-7 record.

After spending the majority of the season's first two months away from Camden Yards, the Orioles' 10-game homestand was their longest so far this year. And the four-game weekend series against the Toronto Blue Jays provided a valuable opportunity to cut the gap between themselves and the American League East division leaders. Even though it's only the middle of June and more than 90 games remain in the season, the Orioles' series split with the Blue Jays was an opportunity lost.

Today Forest Park (3-3) at No. 5 Edmondson (5-0) Time: 3:45 p.m. Outlook: The two-time Baltimore City West Division champion Redskins (2-0 league) go after their 23rd straight win against city opponents, and their 24th victory in the past 25 games dating to a 1998 loss to Forest Park. Forest Park (2-1 league) is coming off last week's 43-0 rout of division rival Southern and still hopes to remain in contention for a Class 1A state playoff berth. The Redskins, Class 2A state runners-up last fall, were idle last week.

Dave MacWilliams' final words as the Spirit's coach were as much an indictment of himself as the team.Frustrated and exasperated by the Spirit's unresponsiveness to his urgings, MacWilliams said: "I wasn't getting the response from the players that I would like to have seen."With that, MacWilliams resigned. That was last January, after the Spirit had lost eight of 11 games and plunged from second to fourth place in the National Professional Soccer League's American Division.Within a few months, the man who couldn't motivate one team got a job with another, the expansion Philadelphia Kixx, in his hometown.

Now in his fourth season as coach at Mervo, Woody Williams had the Mustangs in position to play for the City League's East Division title. A victory yesterday over host Southern-Baltimore would have made next Monday's regular-season finale against Lake Clifton a contest for the division championship.However, a breakdown at the free-throw line led to Mervo's 89-78 double-overtime loss to the Bulldogs and left Williams refusing to comment after the game.Holding a 69-67 lead with over a minute remaining in the first overtime, Mervo missed eight consecutive free throws.

SARASOTA, Fla. - For most of the past two decades, the American League East has been considered the toughest division in baseball, primarily because it contained the sport's two financial behemoths, the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox. Each year since the wild-card spot was created in 1995, one of those two has made the playoffs. Eight times in those 17 years they've done it together. Ever so slightly, though, things have been shifting in the AL East. In 2008, the low-budget Tampa Bay Rays emerged from a franchise-spanning slumber to win the division while the Yankees failed to make the playoffs for the first time since the strike-shortened 1994 season.

It's not something you can readily see. It's not something you can feel or touch. But under the surface of everyday life in the city lies an age-old rift between East Baltimore and West Baltimore, a gulf of perceptions about the haves and the have-nots.Now, for the first time in decades, pastors from both sides of the city are coming together in an effort to heal the breach and create a new, more unified power base."You'd have to have been from Baltimore to understand," said Pastor Anthony Johnson, who grew up on the west side and now represents the other side of town as first vice president of Clergy United for the Renewal of East Baltimore (CURE)

BALTIMORE ORIOLESSpring priorities: It should be no secret by now that the Orioles will spend the next six weeks searching for the final piece of manager Johnny Oates' five-man starting rotation. . . . Oates also will face a big decision in right field, where Luis Mercedes, Chito Martinez and Sherman Obando will compete for playing time. . . . Getting starting catcher Chris Hoiles (wrist surgery) and backup Jeff Tackett (broken collarbone) back to full strength also will be important.New faces: Second baseman Harold Reynolds, outfielder/DH Harold Baines; minor-league free agents Steve Searcy, Jamie Moyer, Mike Cook and Wayne Edwards.
