With only Sunday's game against the New York Yankees remaining before the All-Star break, the Orioles are guaranteed to begin the second half of the season atop the American League East division. But Orioles manager Buck Showalter insists there is plenty left to fight for in the second half. “We may be in first place now, but we still feel like we're hunting something,” he said. Showalter said the biggest key to the second half, which begins with 26 consecutive games against teams that currently have a winning record, will be the team's pitching.

When Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette introduced Nelson Cruz to the media back in February, he was quick to point out the slugger's postseason accolades. There's no doubt the Orioles have gotten their money's worth in their one-year, $8 million investment in the 34-year-old pending free agent, but could the true payoff be ahead? Cruz will head into the Orioles' American League Division League Series matchup against the Detroit Tigers with 34 postseason games under his belt.

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter said his final visit to Camden Yards this week brought back memories of his first full season in pinstripes. That year, he played against the Orioles in the American League Championship Series and he was in awe of Cal Ripken, Jr., whom Jeter still regards as a role model. “I was sort of thrust right into it,” Jeter said before his final regular-season game at Camden Yards on Sunday night. “Baltimore had great teams. I remember coming here in 1996 in my first full season.

TORONTO -- Moments after their 1-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, the Orioles finally found out who they would face in the American League Division Series. It had been a 12-day wait since the Orioles clinched the AL East. But inside the visiting clubhouse of the Rogers Centre, as the Orioles packed their bag for the trip home to Baltimore - it wasn't baseball, but NFL football on the televisions. The Orioles believe they are ready for the Detroit Tigers, who will travel to Camden Yards to open the ALDS on Thursday.

The Maryland baseball team's improbable NCAA tournament run ended in disappointment Monday when Virginia jumped to an early lead and never let up in an 11-2 drubbing in the deciding third game of the NCAA super regional. “There's only eight teams that can go to Omaha (Neb. for the College World Series), and I'd say these guys had about as special a season as they possibly could have had,” Maryland coach John Szefc said. “Unfortunately, we got matched up against an absolute monster in the super regional at their place.” That monster was a Virginia squad whose explosive offense threatened in Maryland's Game 1 win Saturday, broke out to take Game 2 Sunday, and never relented in a 13-hit barrage Monday that ended Maryland's season.

THE CHANCES are good today that on some sodden field, kids are trying to play the last game of the season as their dutiful parents shiver on the sidelines.It doesn't matter much which sport is winding down. At this time of year the usual candidates are football, soccer and field hockey. Regardless of which sport their kids are playing, the parents on the sidelines are probably suffering from the "last game of the season syndrome."One symptom of this syndrome is the "spousal dodge." This is a pregame condition that occurs when one parent tries to cajole the other into accompanying the kid to the final game.

As the lights dimmed at Camden Yards tonight, the career of Orioles third baseman Cal Ripken also went dark. Ripken played in his final game, the 3,001st since leaving Triple-A Rochester for the major leagues in August 1981. He takes with him a warehouse full of records and accolades, and the organization's last link to a Hall of Famer. The connection began with Brooks Robinson and extended past Frank Robinson, Jim Palmer and most likely Eddie Murray. It ended tonight with baseball's Iron Man, the all-time leader for consecutive games played and a virtually certain first-ballot inductee to Cooperstown.

WASHINGTON - Going into his final game, Towson senior Darnell "Sporty" Evans guaranteed his coaches a defensive touchdown against Georgetown. He delivered on his promise - twice. Playing his final college game in front of a hometown crowd, the Bullis Prep alumnus scored two touchdowns to lead the Tigers (3-7, 2-5 Patriot League) to a 27-9 win over the Hoyas (3-7, 0-6) yesterday at Kehoe Field. "I had 30 people coming to the game; it's my hometown," Evans said. "I can't describe it right now. I wanted to go out with a bang, and I played my heart out."

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 - 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]

The Orioles' regular-season home finale Sunday afternoon ended with a whimper, a 3-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox. But they'll be back. For just the second time in Camden Yards' 23-season history, the Orioles ended their home schedule knowing for sure that they would return for a playoff game. Only in 1997 - the other time they were American League East division champions while playing at Camden Yards - did they know that the last regularly scheduled game in Baltimore wasn't their final one for the year.

The Ravens' second-string offensive line, featuring a combination of rookies and former starters, will get its most extended playing time Thursday in the final preseason game against New Orleans. Despite some injuries and shuffling within the unit during the preseason, coach John Harbaugh said he's happy with the group's performance so far in the preseason. “I think our depth on our offensive line is at least as good as anybody else's,” Harbaugh said. “If you look around the league, it's hard to have ten starting offensive linemen on your roster.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - Former All-Star center Alonzo Mourning will attempt a comeback next season after being forced to retire from the NBA earlier this season because of a kidney transplant, a member of the New Jersey Nets' organization said last night. Mourning played in only 12 games after signing a four-year, $22 million free-agent contract. He appeared in his final game Nov. 22 and underwent a transplant on Dec. 19. He returned to the bench occasionally late in the season and joined the team on the road for the first time in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.

The Legends Football League, perhaps better known by its descriptive former name, the Lingerie Football League, appears to have played its last game at the Baltimore Arena. This Saturday's scheduled Baltimore Charm home game against the Atlanta Steam has been canceled, with both the Arena and the league agreeing the main culprit was low ticket sales. LFL officials, however, also took a swipe at the arena, where the team's home games have been played the past four seasons. A statement emailed by Courtney Gifford, the league's marketing manager, blamed "the costly and in most cases unnecessary union fees as well as inflated arena rental fee, [that]
