David Chirinos, a former Marine Corps corporal who served in Afghanistan, died of complications from cancer and liver failure Sept. 13 at his Parkville home. He was 27. Born in Miami, he was the son of Rosa Chirinos. He was a graduate of South Ridge High School, where he played varsity volleyball and was team captain. He worked for DirecTV and for a hotel car valet service for a year before enlisting in the Marines in 2009. "He took his volleyball seriously and could jump super high," said a high school classmate, Chris Montero, who lives in Wilmington, N.C. "He was a natural leader, in a spontaneous kind of way. He was never pushy.

A fashionable pick when spring training began, the Mariners are trending badly at the time things are turning serious. Perhaps this is to be expected, for a variety of reasons. They improved by 24 victories last season, the first for general manager Jack Zduriencik and manager Don Wakamatsu to work together. History says teams that improve that much from one season to the next rarely win more games the next year. Also, the Mariners won 85 games but weren't really an 85-win team.

"Great Performances," the PBS showcase of American performing arts, came to town for the Star-Spangled Spectacular concert at Pier Six Saturday night and showed how to make great, live television. On paper, the lineup of talent for the concert celebrating the bicentennial of the national anthem was a very mixed bag: Melissa Etheridge, Denyce Graves-Montgomery, Little Big Town, Smokey Robinson, Kenny Rogers, Kristin Chenoweth, Jordin Sparks, Pentatonix, Paulo Szot, Train, The Navy Band Sea Chanters and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Marin Alsop.

The 1988 Orioles may soon get their names erased from the record books, and that's a good thing. That Orioles team lost 21 straight games -- to open the season, no less -- for the longest losing streak by an American League team in the modern era. Only the 1961 Phillies have had a longer one, losing 23 in a row. The Orioles could be dethroned by the Mariners early next week. Seattle has lost 17 straight games since July 6. What's crazy is that the Mariners were at .500 when the streak started.

How it happened: David Hernandez gave up two runs in the fifth, allowing a solo homer to Ryan Langerhans, who had just one hit in 11 at-bats this season, and then issuing a bases-loaded walk to Chone Figgins, who entered the game hitting .185. Then in the fifth, he issued back-to-back, two-out walks and an RBI single to Rob Johnson that scored two runs because Reimold fumbled and then booted the ball. He said it: "For four innings, Hernandez had a very good fastball.

Catoctin already had scored three touchdowns and taken an 18-point lead by the time Joppatowne ran its first play. It was just the beginning of a long day for No. 5 Joppatowne in Saturday's Class 1A state championship game. The Mariners repeatedly stopped themselves with mistakes, and Catoctin pulled away for a 37-12 victory at M&T Bank Stadium. Joppatowne (13-1) moved the ball easily but couldn't make the big plays that Catoctin (14-0) did. The Mariners got inside the Cougars' 20-yard line five times but converted those drives into only six points.

How it happened: Orioles starter Brad Bergesen, who was demoted to Triple-A Norfolk after the last time he faced Seattle, atoned for that poor performance in a big way. The right-hander went a season-best 7 2/3 innings, allowing one run on five hits and two walks. The Orioles' offense showed a spark of life, backing Bergesen by scoring five runs in the first six innings of the game. Miguel Tejada drove in two with a third-inning double, Luke Scott went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, and Adam Jones had three hits and an RBI. Closer Alfredo Simon came on in the ninth and recorded his fourth save in four chances this season.

In 1970, American blood was being shed on the killing fields of Vietnam. Congress lowered the voting age from 21 to 18. Richard Nixon's Oval Office conversations were being recorded. And in Annapolis, a cub reporter was hired by the Evening Capital. He was nearly 30 years old, borderline ancient for a beginning daily newspaper reporter. Unlike other Capital staffers, he was a Naval Academy graduate with a master's degree in journalism, and he was a Vietnam war combat veteran. And he could not type.

Ari'Yonna Vrathwaite thought she would be a music producer when she grew up, until she started attending a program at the National Aquarium this week. Now, the program that gets students involved in research about the Chesapeake Bay watershed has given Ari'Yonna something to think about: marine biology as a career. "I really like it and I want to come back here again," she said. "We have fun. " Ari'Yonna, 13 and a rising eighth-grader at Commodore John Rogers School in Baltimore, said that so far she liked testing the oxygen level in the water the most.

Orioles starter Chris Tillman dominated the Seattle Mariners lineup again Sunday, but he wants everyone to know that it's nothing personal. Of course, Tillman came over to the Orioles in the 2008 trade with the Mariners that also brought All-Star center fielder Adam Jones and three others for left-hander Erik Bedard - a move that is widely credited for being the watershed moment in the club's return to prominence after 14 consecutive losing seasons....

Perhaps it was fitting that the first leadoff home run in Nick Markakis' career would stand as the game-winner Sunday in a 1-0 pitchers' duel victory over the Seattle Mariners at Camden Yards. In his nine years with the Orioles, Markakis has been both a consistent contributor and someone who often has been overlooked while flashier players take center stage. “He is probably the epitome of consistency,” Orioles reliever Tommy Hunter said. “If you can wrap it up and put it in a bottle and give it to somebody - whatever he does on a daily basis - you'd be a rich man. He's a big-time part of this team, part of this organization and he just continues to play baseball.” A first-inning solo homer normally would go unnoticed over the course of a game, but Markakis' shot onto the right-field flag court on the sixth pitch from Seattle right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma became more crucial as the afternoon played out. It was the only run Iwakuma or Orioles starter Chris Tillman would allow in an old-fashioned pitchers' duel.

The Orioles' margin for error this season has been razor thin. They know it, and the statistics back it up. One mistake or one break has often has been the difference in a season of close calls. Entering Saturday night's game against the Seattle Mariners, seven straight games had been decided by one run. That streak ended in a 6-3 Orioles loss before an announced 36,508 at Camden Yards. It really came down to one swing. Seattle's lone offensive superstar and renowned Orioles killer, Robinson Cano, did the honors.

SEATTLE - The Orioles just finished a grueling 10-game road trip against three powers of the American League West with a 6-4 record and series wins in Anaheim and Seattle. It might have been the toughest stretch on the road this year, and the Orioles passed the test. But now they will have to face the Angels and the Mariners at home for a pair of three-game sets at Camden Yards. “It's going to be a memory by the time we leave here because we have two of the best teams in the American League coming in,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said following the Orioles' 3-2, 10-inning win over the Mariners on Sunday.
