Honduras held Switzerland to a 0-0 draw in Group H on Friday in Bloemfontein, South Africa, a result that knocked both teams out of the tournament. The Swiss could have locked up a spot in the second round with a two-goal win over Honduras. Honduras almost stole a win in the 71st minute, but goalkeeper Diego Benaglio denied a wide-open Edgar Alvarez with a brilliant one-handed save. In Durban, Portugal reached the second round after a 0-0 draw with group winner Brazil as two of soccer's most powerful offenses couldn't score.

DETROIT -- The eighth inning came Sunday without any participation from the Tigers' bullpen - much to the delight of an emotionally brittle baseball town still enraged at the abomination in Baltimore. David Price did his job in Game 3, keeping manager Brad Ausmus from walking out of the dugout and motioning to the bullpen. But momentarily filling one hole exposed another. That's how history will critique the 2014 Tigers. Opportunity wasted. The Tigers' season ended in a 2-1 whimper.

Congratulations! It takes a great deal of courage to publish an editorial (Oct. 6) in a one-party state advocating fair boundaries in congressional districts. While most people prefer natural boundaries instead of political-party-count boundaries, professional politicians would rather draw snake-shaped districts to retain their personal power. It has nothing to do with giving the people what they want, but rather with grabbing the golden ring and a personal pedestal of honor.

Barack Obama had a choice between liberalism and the Democratic Party. He chose the latter and it cost him dearly. Liberalism, as an ideology, insists that government can do good and great things for the people and the world, if the people running the government are smart liberals.The Democratic Party says the exact same thing. But liberalism is an ideal, while the Democratic Party is that ideal's representative here in the real world, and in the real world political parties disappoint.

Cars leaving Baltimore via the Jones Falls Expressway experienced significant delays early Monday morning as fire and police crews worked to clear a car fire. The fire was in the northbound lanes of Interstate 83 near Guilford Avenue. The lanes were back open as of about 2:30 a.m. The southbound lanes near 28th Street were also temporarily shut down by police after the Ravens' Super Bowl victory Sunday night because of congestion downtown, but were reopened by 2 a.m. Many motorists leaving the city after watching the Ravens defeat the San Francisco 49ers found themselves slowed to a crawl as traffic backed up.

This week brought some of the best moments of the Orioles' 2011 season. On Monday, they beat a detested foe, the Red Sox, in a home game -- and in doing so forced Boston, recently the clear leader in the American League wild card race, into a tie with the Tampa Bay Rays for that spot. Designated hitter and future Hall-of-Famer Vladimir Guerrero, with a single in the sixth inning, became the all-time hit leader among players from the Dominican Republic. And Robert Andino, who has been filling in for the ailing Brian Roberts at second base, capped a surprisingly productive season with a thrilling inside-the-park home run. Then, at the stroke of midnight Wednesday, they bested that feat with a come-from-behind victory in the bottom of the ninth, ending the Red Sox' playoff hopes.

Annapolis officials dedicated the city's renovated and expanded police headquarters Wednesday, a structure that took five years to build. The building that once was 23,000 square feet has been almost doubled in size to accommodate the growing department, upgraded technology and an emergency management center. "I'm mightily relieved," Mayor Ellen O. Moyer said of the project that has lasted through most of her tenure as mayor, which ends early next month. "This has been a long, hard struggle."

Todd Heap heard the whispers, read the headlines and knew things would be different if he were healthy. They started in 2007, when injuries limited the Ravens tight end to six games and 23 catches. They continued in 2008, when the injuries lingered and the discontent among the team's fans festered. Though Heap didn't miss a game, he struggled to find a consistent role in coordinator Cam Cameron's new offense. Heap never thought about trying to get a fresh start somewhere else.

The Ravens had already lost starting tight end Dennis Pitta for the rest of the season with a hip injury and starting left tackle Eugene Monroe for about a month after he had knee surgery. Now, they know that they'll have to overcome the absence of two defensive starters for an extended period. A day after a 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium dropped his team to 3-2, Ravens coach John Harbaugh announced that starting defensive end Chris Canty had surgery to clean out an infection in his wrist and starting cornerback Asa Jackson is in a walking boot because of a "very severely" sprained toe. Jackson, who had started the past four games opposite the team's top cornerback, Jimmy Smith, will be out a "number of weeks," Harbaugh said.

As I view the constant protesting by residents of Ferguson, Mo., nearly two months after a police officer fatally shot an unarmed teenager, I know that it's only a matter of time before the streets of Baltimore are filled with the same sustained clarion call for justice that has rocked the once inconspicuous Midwestern city. On the surface, the city of Baltimore and Ferguson are worlds apart. With a population nearly 30 times larger than Ferguson, Baltimore is a major American city and cultural hub. From Francis Scott Key to H.L. Mencken to Thurgood Marshall, Baltimore has produced more than its fair share of American icons.

Opportunistic on offense and dogged on defense, the Broadneck boys soccer team accomplished something against Severna Park on Thursday that no other team has since 2012. The No. 11 Bruins got a goal from junior midfielder Ford Murphy midway through the second half and sturdy work on defense the rest of the way to earn a 2-1 win over the defending Class 4A state champion Falcons, ending Severna Park's 27-game unbeaten streak. Severna Park went 17-0-2 last season. The No. 2 Falcons, now 7-1-1 and 5-1-1 in Anne Arundel, finally found their match Thursday at Kinder Farm Park as the Bruins improved to 8-1-1 and stayed undefeated in county play at 7-0. Senior defender Will Hankins, assigned to mark the Falcons' All-Metro senior forward Daniel Kwon, was understandably tired following the game.

About 100 people and businesses were robbed in Baltimore for the week ending Sept. 27, a spike of more than 60 percent compared to the prior week yet down from the same time period last year.  Eight of the robberies occurred downtown or in the Inner Harbor, while the entire Southwestern District reported just three robberies. The same statistics show robberies for the year are down 12 percent compared to last year. The Northern District saw the most of any of the Police Department's nine police districts, with 21. Eight of those robberies appear to have occurred in a single incident in the 5900 block of York Road on Sept.

Potomac St. at about 3 p.m. looking for a suspect wanted in "several commercial armed robberies" who was believed to be in a home in the block.

For the third time this season, Morgan State lost a game by less than a field goal. But unlike setbacks to Eastern Michigan on Aug. 30 and Holy Cross on Sept. 6, there was something different about Saturday's 15-14 loss to Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference foe Norfolk State. The Bears had entered the contest on a two-game winning streak, and the Spartans wallowed their way through an 0-4 start. But Morgan State (2-3 overall and 1-1 in the league) couldn't prevent Norfolk State from scoring a game-winning touchdown with 29 seconds left in regulation.

Donald Gansauer write from Canton: "Over the years, I've noticed that snowflakes coalesce into much larger flakes just before the snowstorm ends. Why?" The calm after the storm? Large flakes for when temperatures are near freezing, amid light winds with slight updrafts. This allows snow crystals -- especially "dendritic" flakes with fine, spiky arms -- to stick together and grow large, some up to 6 inches wide.

Sorry, Oriole Magic fans, there was nothing supernatural about the way the club ran away from the rest of the American League East this year, even if it does defy logical explanation. They clinched the division title in surprisingly short order with one of baseball's best all-around catchers on the shelf for five months, their Platinum Glove third baseman recovering from another serious knee injury, and last year's most explosive major league hitter shockingly suspended for violating the sport's amphetamine policy.

COLLEGE PARK - When he's healthy, Braxton Miller is a star, a dynamic and multidimensional threat at quarterback and one of the top offensive weapons in the country. But even without Miller, who suffered a season-ending shoulder injury during preseason practice, Ohio State's offense is still gaining a lot of yards and scoring a lot of points in recent weeks. The play of Miller's replacement, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, is one of the primary reasons why. Slowing Barrett down and trying to force the young quarterback into mistakes will be key for Maryland heading into Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State at Byrd Stadium.
