The words delivered in the Orioles clubhouse after another jaw-busting, late-inning loss to the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series belied the otherwise eerie silence that punctuated the room. Bounce around from player to player after Saturday's 6-4 loss in Game 2 and, no matter who you talk to, the refrain remains the same. It's only two losses. These Orioles are great on the road. They have overcome so much adversity, what's a little more? “It's tough, it's a hole,” Orioles reliever Darren O'Day said.

The death of 45-year-old Natasha Richardson last week from what had been labeled a "mild brain injury" after a skiing accident has experts in trauma warning the public to take a blow to the head seriously. An autopsy confirmed the actress, who fell on the slopes, died of an epidural hematoma, which is bleeding between the skull and the outer layer that covers the brain called the dura. But doctors not involved in her care noted reports that said she initially refused treatment. It's not possible for those who didn't examine her to say faster treatment would have saved her. And death from such a seemingly minor accident is rare.

Sixty-three years ago this week - at 9 p.m. Oct. 15, 1951 - TV viewers got their first look at a situation comedy on CBS that, in short order, would become part of the country's cultural DNA. The focal point of the show was the redheaded title character, Lucy Ricardo (even in black and white, you could somehow tell the color of her hair); her Cuban-born husband, Ricky, leader of a dance band at a New York club; and their best friends, Fred and Ethel Mertz, landlords of the brownstone apartment building on the Upper East Side where they all laughed, loved, fought and schemed.

In his first year as Morgan State's football coach Lee Hull has led guide the Bears to a 3-3 start and a 2-1 mark in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. It's the first time the program enters its bye week with a .500 overall record and a winning league mark since the 2011 squad went 5-3 overall and 4-1 in the MEAC before enjoying a weekend off. So, it's easy to see why Hull likes where the Bears are. “I think we're headed in the right direction,” he said Tuesday morning during his weekly conference call arranged by the MEAC.

We don't have enough evidence to declare the process for selecting a candidate to replace new Baltimore Development Corp. head William Cole a "travesty," as nine of the passed-over hopefuls did in a letter to the City Council. But we can certainly declare it disgraceful and most definitely not in keeping with recently enacted reforms that promised a transparent, community led process for filling council vacancies. Fourteen candidates, including many with strong records of public service, spent four hours explaining their qualifications to a panel of community leaders, business owners and two council members, all of whom were selected by Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young under a new protocol for filling council vacancies.

The Grille at Peerce's will be sold at public auction on Nov. 10, according to Daniel Billig of A. J. Billig & Co. Auctioneers. The Phoenix restaurant, formerly known as Peerce's Plantation, will remain open until the property settles, Billig said, which will likely be around the end of this year. Established in 1932, Peerce's Plantation was a landmark, family-owned Baltimore County dining destination before it closed in 2001. In 2008, the property was purchased by Joseph W. Bivona, Jr. as a venue for his Signature Catering company.

Note to Brian Matusz and T.J. McFarland: It's not personal. The Orioles released their roster for the American League Division Series on Thursday morning and a couple of the team's left-handed mainstays are going to spend the next several days in a cheerleading role. That's not because of anything they did or didn't do during the regular season. It's because the Detroit Tigers are such a heavily right-handed-hitting team that there won't be very many opportunities for manager Buck Showalter to match up using his lefties in the middle and late innings.

Walter Evan Black Jr., a retired chief judge of the U.S. District Court for Maryland who ruled against the city of Baltimore in its efforts to acquire the Colts after the team moved to Indianapolis, died of complications from Parkinson's disease Monday at his Easton home. The former Roland Park-area resident was 88. During a lengthy career, he ruled against Baltimore in 1985 when it attempted to acquire the Colts football franchise by condemnation. In his ruling, he said the city did not have the power to take the franchise because the team had moved on the night of March 29, 1984, before the day the city had filed its suit.

On Saturday, Maryland will take the field with Ohio State, one of the power teams in the Big Ten Conference and one of the favorites to win the East Division. The Terps believe they have the talent to beat teams like the Buckeyes. This is their chance to prove it. A win also would put Maryland at 2-0 in conference play with likely only one team more talented than Ohio State remaining on the Terps' schedule. This is a big opportunity for Maryland and a big game for a number of reasons.
