Brian Roberts, who has never appeared in a playoff game in his lengthy his career, did his part in the fourth inning Friday night to bring a playoff atmosphere to Camden Yards. Facing the Oakland A's, whom the Orioles trail by three games for the second AL wild-card berth, Roberts gave his team the lead in the fourth inning with the sixth grand slam of his career, a shot over the scoreboard in right field. The grand slam chased Oakland starter Dan Straily and gave the Orioles a 6-3 lead.

For Nancy and Bob Reigle, the call came down to America's Colonial showplace versus the Orioles in the playoffs. "We have wanted to go to Williamsburg for some time," said Nancy Reigle, a retired teacher in the Baltimore County public schools who had scheduled a trip to begin Oct. 20 - the day before the start of the World Series. "I was keeping an eye on the schedules, and then I noticed that the American League has home field advantage [for the World Series], and that they could be playing in Baltimore that Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Severna Park volleyball team has towered over its competition in Anne Arundel County so far this season. The No. 2 Falcons have three players on the front line who average 6 feet tall - Mary Smith (6-3), Sophie Hoekstra (5-11) and Tara Register (5-10) - but it's 5-foot-7 setter Morgan Kline who makes the offense work. Kline, a junior, contributed 26 assists and 10 digs to lead host Severna Park (10-0, 9-0) to a 25-19, 25-21, 25-14 victory over No. 8 Arundel (9-2, 8-2) in a key Anne Arundel County league game Monday.

When the General Assembly convenes January 12, one of itstoughest challenges is to do something about Maryland's lead-paint crisis.A failure to act could cause further havoc, especially in Baltimore's depressed residential real-estate market where aging income properties are often almost impossible to trade because their lead paint poses potential health hazards.An example: At a recent auction, a two-story porch house in the 2900 block Winchester Avenue failed to elicit bids even though it was likely to bring $385 in monthly rental income (after modest repairs)

For much of Friday night's Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference matchup, top-ranked Archbishop Spalding kept No. 6 Seton Keough off balance with its press and traps. The Cavaliers also built their offense around junior guard Maggie Morrison, who dominated with her outside shooting and no-look passes under the basket. Host Spalding trailed only once and finished strong for a 59-42 victory, ending a seven-year losing streak to Seton Keough. "They have a lot of size, and we don't.

Towson entered Monday's matchup with Delaware clinging to hope that it could make a late-season push to fulfill its preseason expectations as favorites to win the Colonial Athletic Association. Another loss to the red-hot Blue Hens, and the Tigers would have to resign themselves to, at best, a No. 2 seed in next month's conference tournament. Jerrelle Benimon wouldn't have any of it. The preseason CAA Player of the Year put on a show, scoring 25 points and pulling down 18 rebounds, leading the Tigers to a 78-63 victory at SECU Arena and handing Delaware its first conference loss of the season.

City officials have cited two local businesses for selling children's jewelry that contains lead levels in excess of the federal standard of 300 parts per million. Rainbow Kids was selling a Princess and the Frog necklace and bracelet set, and Youngworld Store was selling a Princess Expressions purple crown bracelet that violated standards. Both are in Mondawmin Mall and will no longer be permitted to sell the items. The Baltimore Health Department tested seven products in June for lead, a neurotoxin that can cause cognitive impairment and neurological problems in small doses and more severe illness and death at higher doses.

It is fascinating to read of all these organizations that want to do so much for us. The American Civil Liberties Union is suing the U.S. Department of Defense to put an end to the ban on women in combat. Senators Ben Cardin and Barbara Boxer want the environment on military bases to be made safer by reducing the amount of lead to which our troops are exposed ("Lead limits on military firing ranges outdated, reports says," Dec. 4). These advocates even cited evidence that pregnant women should not be exposed to levels of lead for risk of spontaneous abortion.

With two passionate fist pumps Saturday evening, Kansas City Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain punctuated an evening when he swung nearly every big moment in a tense 4-hour, 17-minute game in his team's direction. The first celebration came after his final running catch of the night kept the game tied. The second, two innings later, came after his fourth hit of the night helped ensure his Royals would head back to Kansas City with a 6-4 win and a two-game lead in the American League Championship Series.

Democrat Anthony G. Brown holds a modest lead over Republican Larry Hogan in Maryland's race for governor, but many voters have not firmly made up their minds and the outcome is far from certain, according to a new poll conducted for The Baltimore Sun. The poll by OpinionWorks of Annapolis found Brown leading Hogan 49 percent to 42 percent. Though Brown has a 7-point lead, the poll found his backers are less solid in their conviction than Hogan supporters. And many in Brown's camp are younger voters, a bloc that historically is less likely to vote.

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.

Dave Schaub had staked quite a lot on the Orioles as they attempted to rally against the Detroit Tigers in Friday's Game 2 of the American League Division Series. The sign the Middle River resident hoisted above his head said it all: "If the O's Win, We're Getting Married!" So it was just a little sweeter for him when Delmon Young's three-run double fell in to put the Orioles ahead in the eighth inning and Zach Britton closed out the 7-6 victory, which put the Tigers down 2-0 with the series headed to Detroit.

It seems like Delmon Young has been in the major leagues for more than nine years. Maybe that's because he came to the majors so young, or maybe because he's in the postseason every year. His bat has always earned him a job. Throughout years ragged by injuries, off-the-field issues and even weight clauses in his contract, hitting has always been the easy part. After his three-run, pinch-hit double Friday afternoon led the Orioles to a 7-6 comeback win over the Detroit Tigers in Game 2 of the American League Division Series, Young was asked whether he had ice in his veins.

Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis waited nine seasons, 1,365 games and 5,966 plate appearances for his first postseason at-bat. The 30-year-old admits he was rather nervous when he stepped to the plate around 6 p.m. Thursday before a soldout, screaming, orange-towel waving crowd at Camden Yards. “Absolutely, I'd be lying if I told you no,” Markakis said. “That is part of the game, part of the job. It's a matter of controlling your emotions and staying within yourself on the big stage.” Markakis watched three pitches, two balls and a strike, before taking his first hack, smacking a 93-mph fastball from Detroit Tigers starter Max Scherzer straight back to center field for his first postseason single - and the Orioles' first hit of the 2014 playoffs.
