The hit that broke open the National League Wild Card Game on Wednesday night revealed an almost unbelievable baseball postseason statistic. Brandon Crawford's fourth-inning grand slam for the San Francisco Giants was the first four-run homer hit by a shorstop in the postseason. Ever. Crawford -- the 24-year-old infielder who has hit 26 home runs in 511 regular season games -- has more postseason grand slams than one guy who most Orioles fans love (Cal Ripken Jr.) and another they begrudgingly grew to respect over a frustrating 20 years (Derek Jeter)

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.

TAMPA, Fla.-- --The breakup rumors are true. The nightly dinners have stopped. The sleepovers, too. The duo isn't officially separated, but the fire sure ain't what it used to be. Apparently, A-Rod and Jeet just don't love each other like they once did. That's according to Alex Rodriguez, the New York Yankees third baseman and baseball's most talented and intimidating princess (sorry, Barry Bonds, but the crown has been passed). Rodriguez decided to come clean yesterday in his first spring chat with the media.

NEW YORK -- Shortstop Derek Jeter and the New York Yankees are close to completing a seven-year, $118.5 million contract that would be the richest in baseball history. The negotiations could culminate within the next week in a face-to-face meeting between Jeter and Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, according to a person familiar with Jeter's contract discussions. Jeter's representative and the Yankees are still negotiating the construction of the 25-year-old shortstop's signing bonus, but if the final numbers are close to the $118.

Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo gave some serious thought to walking Derek Jeter intentionally. He is, after all, the New York Yankees' top hitter, one of the toughest outs in the clutch and a player who has made Orioles pitcher Rodrigo Lopez's life miserable in the past. However, with a man on third and one out in the eighth inning and Jorge Posada waiting on deck, Perlozzo left it up to Lopez, hoping that the demoted starter would not give in to Jeter. He did, leaving a pitch over the plate that Jeter hammered to right field for an RBI single.

NEW YORK -- Derek Jeter didn't pause to admire his controversial eighth-inning home run last night at Yankee Stadium. He just dropped the bat, lowered his head and took off."I don't hit too many home runs," he said. "I'm not one to stand there and watch them."This one was worth a look.This one had to be seen to be believed.With the New York Yankees down a run in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series, Jeter lofted a high fly ball to right off Orioles reliever Armando Benitez. Right fielder Tony Tarasco stood with his back against the padded wall, waiting to make the catch.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- In a world where celebrity breakups have become a staple of both the grocery-line tabloids and the network magazine shows, I guess it was only a matter of time before this run of interpersonal superstar dysfunction would find its way to baseball. If you haven't been paying close attention, it's only the biggest story of spring training. Alex Rodriguez acknowledged this week that his relationship with teammate Derek Jeter has cooled over the past couple of years.

NEW YORK - It is scheduled to rain here throughout the day, and there's a 70 percent chance of rain when Thursday night's series finale against the New York Yankees is supposed to begin. That's throwing the locals into a frenzy because of the possibility that Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's final home game could be rained out. If the game cannot be played Thursday, it likely wouldn't be made up if it's a meaningless game in the standings. The Orioles are still chasing the American League's best record - and home-field advantage throughout the postseason - but they're running out of games to catch up with the Los Angeles Angels.

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]

If Derek Jeter could have scripted his perfect ending at Yankee Stadium, it would have looked a lot like what actually happened Thursday night, but it wouldn't have happened if the Orioles hadn't worked so hard on the rewrite. The Orioles had to rally from a three-run deficit in the top of the ninth inning just to give Jeter a chance to get back to the plate, and they did it with dramatic home runs by Adam Jones and Steve Pearce. It was probably the first time in history a sellout crowd in the Bronx was happy to see the opposing team stage a huge last-inning comeback.

I have been watching Orioles baseball since the 1950s, and I have seen many great players come through town. Derek Jeter is one of those players I have enjoyed watching. He has played great baseball with skill and class. He deserves a standing ovation as he goes out the door. It's too bad that Greg Abel can't show the same class and show some respect for one of the greats of the game ( "Good riddance, Jeter," Sept. 11).

So let me tell you about my experiences at Camden Yards before I respond to the recent commentary suggesting Orioles fans should not cheer for Derek Jeter in his last appearance at the ballpark ( "Good riddance, Jeter," Sept. 11). I went to a game there in the early 1990s when a friend of mine invited me and one-handed pitcher Jim Abbott and outfielder Danny Tartabull were on the Yankees. My friend who is a Yankee fan invited two Orioles fans unbeknownst to me. Jim Abbott was throwing a shutout and the Yankees were up 6-0 by the third inning.

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.

My favorite Orioles-Yankees game of the last 15 years took place during the 2012 American League Division Series. On a chilly October night at Camden Yards, the Orioles beat the Yanks 3-2 to tie the series at one game apiece. Yankee fans often occupied half the seats at Oriole Park during regular season match-ups, but the stands that night were a beautiful sea of orange and black. After 14 years of futility, the Orioles finally didn't stink, and the hometown fans took full, vocal ownership of the stadium.

Because the Yankees are in town, and shortstop Derek Jeter is retiring at season's end, Orioles manager Buck Showalter fielded questions about Jeter to start his daily media briefing. Showalter was Jeter's first manager in New York. And Showalter said all the right things -- things he has said for years -- about how Jeter does everything the right way and knows how to treat people. But Showalter also had a hilarious aside that I'm sure will make some Orioles fans chuckle. Each team is giving Jeter a going-away present; last year, the Orioles gave retiring closer Mariano Rivera a sculpted broken bat. So what should the Orioles give Jeter?
