NEW YORK - As the final week of the regular season begins, the Orioles' postseason pitching plan is becoming clearer. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said before Monday's series opener against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium that he plans to use four starters in the American League Division Series. Right-hander Chris Tillman is on turn to start with one extra day of rest in the Orioles' series opener against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre on Friday, which also puts him in line to start Game 1 of the ALDS on Oct. 2, also on one extra day of rest.

As the wins kept mounting for Maryland during the past month, so did the injuries - albeit quietly - but the effects were visible in Saturday's 38-16 loss at Boston College. At least five players - including four starters - remain questionable heading into the most critical game of the season, against No. 20 Wake Forest on Saturday. Coach Ralph Friedgen yesterday said he's hoping he'll have offensive linemen Donnie Woods and Jared Gaither, who "have to continue to pass some tests."

A Morgan State defense that finished 2013 ranked eighth in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in average yards allowed (391.8) and ninth in average points surrendered (30.6) could be weaker after the departure of five starters. But the Bears return three of four linebackers who earned a majority of starts last season, and that group was cited by rookie head coach Lee Hull as being critical to leading the defense. “We're really counting on those guys to be the anchor of our defense,” Hull said Tuesday during the MEAC's weekly conference call.

Seton Keough Last season: 22-7, ranked No. 3 With five starters back, a solid bench and four talented freshmen, the Gators have all it takes to reach the top in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference. 2.

Atholton is the two-time defending Howard County softball champion, but Raiders coach John Zitko doesn't think his team should automatically be labeled as this season's favorite. "I think it's going to be a real dogfight in the county this year," Zitko said. "I don't see us as a favorite." The Raiders are good enough to win another county title, but Centennial and River Hill are expected to challenge. Atholton (22-4) has the top battery in the county with All-County players Katie Zitnay (pitcher)

The Ravens were without four defensive starters today as they practiced in preparation for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. Nose tackle Haloti Ngata (knee), middle linebacker Daryl Smith (hamstring) and cornerback Lardarius Webb (groin) all sat out practice for a second consecutive day. All three players were active in the Ravens' 20-17 overtime victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Defensive end Chris Canty (knee) was the only new absence at practice for the Ravens.

As the Ravens built their draft class in April, they did so with the knowledge that several rookies probably would need to contribute immediately. When the team opens training camp at team headquarters this week - and when it begins the defense of its Super Bowl championship against the Denver Broncos in the regular-season opener Sept. 5 - it likely will follow that plug-and-play mentality. The Ravens never have started four rookies to begin the season, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, but that could change this year.

Here is the fourth installment of an attempt at a premature poll for next season. The Top 20 will be broken up into four installments with Tuesday's post involving teams ranked from Nos. 5 to 1. Thursday featured Nos. 20 to 16 , Friday Nos. 15 to 11 , and Monday Nos. 10 to 6 . Wednesday will include three schools not mentioned in the poll that could make some waves. Unless there are confirmed reports about certain players planning to use fifth years of eligibility, this space will assume that seniors in 2013 will not return next year.

Glenelg senior shortstop Leah Allen has to go way back to recall her first memory with a bat in her hand. When she was 2 years old, Allen would go to the backyard with her father, Harold, and play with a Wiffle ball and bat. She signed up for an organized softball league as soon as she was old enough. A four-year starter, two-year captain and returning All-Metro first-team selection, Allen is the do-it-all catalyst who has led the No. 2 Gladiators to an 9-0 record so far this season.

Finally, it's show-and-tell time for Maryland's basketball team.Four weeks after practice began, and 11 days before they rendezvous with Kentucky, the Terrapins will measure their preseason progress in an 8 p.m. exhibition game against Court Authority at Cole Field House.The game will provide the first glimpse of how well Maryland fills the hole left by Joe Smith, last season's national Player of the Year and this year's first pick in the NBA draft. For now, it figures to be by a committee of 6-foot-8 Mario Lucas, 6-9 Rodney Elliott and 6-9 Obinna Ekezie.

NEW YORK -- Less than a minute into the game, Maryland's Juan Dixon went up for a jump shot from the corner -- the same shot that carried the Terps past San Francisco and Tulane and into the Preseason National Invitation Tournament semifinals against Kentucky last night.Kentucky's Desmond Allison not only swatted the ball away as it was leaving Dixon's hand, but he also stared down Dixon and shouted, "Don't bother bringing that stuff in here!"A referee jumped in between them and admonished Allison, but the point was made: What was good enough to beat two underdogs at Cole Field House wasn't going to cut it against 11th-ranked Kentucky last night at Madison Square Garden.

Every athletic director looking for a basketball coach should have Jimmy Patsos on his or hers short list. What he's done in taking Loyola from 1-27 to the NCAA Tournament is nothing short of remarkable. But he's just 44 and probably makes good, not great, money. According to a story last July when Patsos was being talked about as an assistant at some bigger schools, he could make more as a big-time assistant. Loyola needs to lock him up now. Give him a long extension and as much money possible.
