CHICAGO -- The way the red-hot Orioles are playing these days, no deficit seems insurmountable. So when left-hander Wei-Yin Chen quickly fell behind the Chicago White Sox in the first inning Wednesday night, it seemed as if it was only a matter of time before the Orioles would come back. The Orioles were clearly the superior team this week on Chicago's South Side, completing their first series sweep of the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field in 19 years with a 4-3 victory in front of an announced 15,137 that included a significant amount of Orioles fans.

CHICAGO -- Orioles minor league catcher Alex Murphy suffered an injury to his left shoulder over the weekend that likely will end his season at short-season Single-A Aberdeen.

Players sang along to the lyrics of the Zac Brown Band's song, "Free," as it blasted from the speakers after the Orioles -- sparked by a magnificent start from right-hander Chris Tillman -- extended their American League East advantage over the New York Yankees to 8 1/2 games. It's the club's largest lead in the division since Sept.

The National Football League - the folks who first brought you the pink player jerseys - looks ready to codify punishment for players accused of beating women. According to reports leaking out all over the place, the new policy would provide for suspensions of four to six games without pay for the first domestic abuse offense and possibly a season-long suspension for a second offense. The decision was clearly made as a result of the withering criticism NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell received for suspending Baltimore Raven Ray Rice for only two games after the running back was accused of assaulting his then fiancee, now his wife, in the elevator of an Atlantic City hotel.

A lawyer for the Orioles-controlled Mid-Atlantic Sports Network told a judge the network's cash reserves would be nearly eliminated and its operating margin dangerously thin if a June 30 decision by a league committee is allowed to stand, according to court documents. Documents — including affidavits, memorandums, transcripts and exhibits — describe from MASN's perspective a worst-case scenario in the television rights fee case pending before a New York judge. MASN has asked the judge to extend a temporary restraining order issued Aug. 7 blocking the panel's decision from being enforced.
