Todd Heap 's two-touchdown performance in the Ravens' 37-34 overtime win against the visiting Buffalo Bills at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday validated what he had been convinced of last week: that the tight end would play on despite absorbing a violent blow in the helmet the previous week. "I don't like sitting out," Heap said. "If there's any possibility of me playing and if I feel like I can play at the level I expect from myself, I'm going to be out there. " The Ravens are probably thankful that Heap willed himself to play because he scored the team's only offensive touchdowns in the first half to trim what had been a significant deficit to Buffalo to a more manageable level.

KANSAS CITY, MO. - There were several junctures during the 2014 regular season when catcher Caleb Joseph came up big for the Orioles, but he had to admit Sunday that he was starting to wonder if his breakthrough season would be obscured by a lengthy batting slump that had crept into the playoffs. If that was weighing on his mind when he took the field for Game 2 of the American League Championship Series, it didn't show. Joseph delivered a solid all-around performance on Saturday that included a sacrifice fly to drive in the Orioles' first run, two singles and a big, late-inning throw to cut down speedy Kansas City Royals base-stealer Jarrod Dyson at second base.

The intermittent showers that fell on Fenway Park were just half of the climate-related concerns facing manager Buck Showalter and the Orioles on Monday. While the rain threatened to wreak minor havoc on the pitching schedule, the mid-40s temperature was also an issue. Shortstop J.J. Hardy has been back in the lineup for a week after missing a month with a strained oblique, but he was scheduled to take the field for the first time in truly chilly conditions, and Showalter was crossing his fingers.

INDIANAPOLIS - Ravens running back Bernard Pierce ran hard through the middle for a pair of first downs in the third quarter Sunday, displaying no effects of a quadriceps injury that had hampered him for the past few weeks. Despite Pierce gaining 13 yards and 12 yards on his first two carries, the drive stalled and he would see limited playing time overall in his first game back. Pierce finished with 30 yards on four carries in the Ravens' 20-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

FREDERICK - In Manny Machado's long-awaited first minor league rehab game, he looked much like the burgeoning superstar he was before offseason surgery on his left knee. Playing his first minor league rehab game Friday night for the Orioles' high Class-A affiliate in Frederick, Machado had to wait through a 62-minute rain delay that prompted the Orioles to move the Gold Glove winner from third base to designated hitter because of the wet field. But when Machado stepped to the plate in an actual game for the first time since his season ended prematurely last September, the All-Star picked up where he left off, going 3-for-4 with two doubles, a triple and two runs scored.

Despite not allowing an earned run, Maryland split its two games Tuesday to start this year's Heartland Classic baseball tournament in Norman, Okla. Tayler Stiles (Bishop McNamara) set a tournament record for strikeouts in a seven-inning game with 16 as Maryland defeated Georgia, 3-0, to rebound from an earlier 3-2 loss to host Oklahoma. Stiles, who will play at Maryland next season, allowed two hits and walked two batters in the complete-game victory. The state's high school all-star team rallied to tie its first game Tuesday in the top of the seventh inning, but Oklahoma scored its third unearned run of the game in the bottom of the frame for a one-run victory.

DETROIT - Since the moment right-hander Bud Norris joined the Orioles in a trade last July, he has talked about pitching in the playoffs. The chatty 29-year-old finally received the chance Sunday on a blistery afternoon at Comerica Park against the celebrated Detroit Tigers offense. He seized it, throwing 6 1/3 scoreless innings in a 2-1 victory, catapulting the Orioles into a second postseason round - the first time they've reached the American League Championship Series since 1997.

A day after the Detroit Tigers bullpen imploded in Game 1, the same cast of relievers was again responsible for an eighth-inning meltdown that sent the Orioles on the road with a 7-6 win and a 2-0 lead in the American League Division Series. "It's certainly a little tough to swallow," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "When you have a three-run lead going into the last couple of innings, you feel like you should get the job done. But we didn't. " The Tigers bullpen returns to Comerica Park after a disastrous two-day stretch in which it allowed 11 runs (10 earned)

Remember when everybody wanted Juan Castillo run out of town, when the run-game coordinator was a symbol of all that went wrong with the Ravens last year? This offseason, Ravens coach John Harbaugh changed his title to offensive line coach, and stuck by Castillo, calling him one of the best offensive line coaches in the league. Harbaugh's faith has been rewarded. Joe Flacco has been sacked only three times in four games. Only Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton , who has yet to be sacked, has been taken down less, and the Bengals have played one fewer game than the Ravens.

The start times for the Orioles' first two American League Division Series games at Camden Yards were announced Monday evening, contingent on the outcomes of both wild-card games. The Orioles and the Detroit Tigers will open the postseason with the early game Thursday. If the Kansas City Royals win Tuesday's American League wild-card game, the game will start at 5:37 p.m. And the start will be pushed back 30 minutes to 6:07 p.m. if the Oakland Athletics win the wild-card game. The start of Game 2, which will be Friday, depends on the outcome of the National League wild-card game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the San Francisco Giants.

Ravens veteran cornerback Lardarius Webb was pulled from the game by coach John Harbaugh after playing just four snaps against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. It marked his first game back from a lower back injury that prevented him from playing in the first two regular season games and the entire preseason. Webb finished with one tackle and had trouble staying with receivers in his season debut, but is hopeful that coach John Harbaugh will increase his playing time this week.

The Ravens last season were demolished in Denver, bumbled through their afternoon in Buffalo, and caved in close losses at Cleveland, Chicago and Cincinnati. A team that had relished going on the road and winning in coach John Harbaugh's first five seasons became a mistake-prone, defensively challenged shell of itself whenever it ventured away from M&T Bank Stadium in 2013. The current Ravens are a far different team, players have said repeatedly in recent weeks. They can prove that and distance themselves from recent road woes by going to Cleveland and beating the rejuvenated Browns on Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium.

BOSTON - Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez stifled the Red Sox for eight innings in the first game of a split doubleheader at Fenway Park, delivering arguably his best start of the season, but the Orioles still suffered a sobering, 3-2, walk-off loss to the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Seemingly rested and recovered from their early-morning arrival in Boston on Friday after their scheduled afternoon game was postponed until Saturday because of rain, the Orioles received a boost from Gonzalez, but mustered just five hits on the afternoon.

Kodie Englehart recorded just one assist in his first game of the season, but the senior midfielder's presence alone was beneficial in No. 7 Washington College's 12-7 victory over Frostburg State on Saturday. “He's got an energy that you just can't try to replicate with anybody else,” coach Jeff Shirk said on Monday. “He was flying around, but I also think it was probably better for him to get his first game under his belt because of the way that Kodie is. He has such high energy and high emotion that he may have been a little too high on Saturday.

First baseman Christian Walker was called up to a division-winning team in September to help give some players a break in the final 10 days of the season. Walker, 23, immediately was inserted into the Orioles' lineup Wednesday night. He struck out in his first at-bat and hit a flyout in his second. But in his third trip to the plate, in the seventh inning against Toronto Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ, Walker laced a double down the left-field line for his first major league hit. “It was exciting, you know.

Eluding cornerbacks with quick moves or tossing them aside with a mean stiff arm, wide receiver Steve Smith has been busy establishing himself as the Ravens' top offensive weapon through two games. Smith has been thrown to a team-high 25 times heading into Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, making 13 catches for 189 yards and a touchdown. Signed to a three-year, $11 million contract in March, the five-time Pro Bowl selection quickly has become the featured wide receiver that Andre Johnson was in Gary Kubiak's Houston Texans offense.
