Everything about the scene at Yankee Stadium reinforces the idea that the resident team is supposed to win - not just most of the time, but every night and, especially, every night in October. It's more than the 27 World Series flags on the facing of the second deck or the monuments to Babe Ruth and Joe DiMaggio in center field. The assumption lies in the fiber of every conversation between fans, every pre-game question posed to Yankees manager Joe Girardi. So when the Orioles, in their first postseason since 1997, arrived for the third game of the American League Division Series on Wednesday, they seemed to delight in playing the role of unexpected houseguests.

Maryland men's soccer coach Sasho Cirovski has been suspended one game by the Big Ten for actions after the team's loss to Northwestern on Sunday that were in violation of the conference's sportsmanship policy. As part of the penalty, the school has also been fined $10,000. Cirovski will incur the total cost of the fine, according to a team spokeswoman. Cirovski will serve the suspension Wednesday night against Virginia Commonwealth. According to a story in The Diamondback , Maryland's student paper, Cirovski "tried pushing his way toward the officials, his arms flailing and his voice booming" after the 3-2 overtime loss at Northwestern.

Double-A Bowie right fielder Ronnie Welty had a night to remember Thursday night, hitting two home runs and driving in a career-high eight runs in the Baysox's 17-2 trouncing of the Harrisburg Senators at Prince George's Stadium. The 24-year-old Welty, who was the Orioles' 20th-round selection in 2008, opened his night with a solo homer in the third inning, then hit a three-run triple in the fifth, followed by a three-run homer in the sixth. He finished his night with a sacrifice fly in the seventh.

It is early in the preseason, so it's OK to dream at this point. After an impressive drive on their only series together as starters, the Ravens had something to smile about Thursday night in the preseason opener against the San Francisco 49ers. What if this offensive line can play this well all season? We're not going to get ridiculous here. The Ravens had a 10-play, 80-yard scoring drive that ended with a 2-yard touchdown run by Bernard Pierce on their opening drive. Of course the 49ers had six defensive starters out of the lineup, and their game-day intensity was certainly lacking, but that's not what you look for in preseason game No. 1. On the offensive line, you look for communication and cohesion.

Football teams that compete on the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) level are supposed to be the cream of the crop. That reputation absorbed a hit this past weekend. Six FBS schools suffered losses to programs from the Fooball Championship Subdivision (FCS) level. Towson's 33-18 defeat of Connecticut Thursday night got the ball rolling for the FCS. To be fair, the majority of the FBS teams that played against FCS opponents this past weekend exerted their might. Still, Tigers coach Rob Ambrose agreed with the notion that the talent gap between FBS and FCS schools has been narrowing since FBS programs were limited to distributing 85 scholarships.

Ten reasons Westminster and South Carroll should meet in a one-game showdown at night for the Carroll County high school baseball championship are:* The players on these talented teams deserve a chance to perform in prime time -- when all their friends and family can watch -- at least once.* High school baseball in the county has reached such a high level that it no longer should be hidden away during the afternoons.* These two strong rivals should not be asked for a second straight year to share a championship.

Steve Swiech is accustomed to pitching in important games. The four-year Mount Hebron varsity starter earned a win over Centennial his freshman year that clinched a share of the county championship. Yesterday at Hammond's hitter-friendly field, the slick senior left-hander faced his biggest challenge this season against a hard-hitting No. 8 Bears team that had an 11-game winning streak and was tied with the No. 5 Vikings for first place. Despite throwing 121 pitches and allowing three home runs, two in the last inning, Swiech gutted out a 7-6 complete-game victory, giving his Vikings (13-3, 12-2)

Nothing has come easy in this Maryland interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference soccer season. And just when it looked like that may change Thursday - when No. 2 Loyola scored the first three goals at No. 5 Gilman - the season-long trend still held to form. After surrendering two goals late in the second half, the Dons had to survive 10 anxious moments before earning a 3-2 win over the Greyhounds. Loyola gotimpressive finishes from Gavin Barger, Jeremy DeGraffenreidt and Austin Illiano and five saves from Chris Girken.

At 0-5, the Morgan State football team is off to its worst start since 2000 and opened its Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference campaign with a 27-21 loss to Norfolk State on Saturday. Despite having to fight an uphill battle, coach Donald Hill-Eley said the program's preseason goals are still attainable. He pointed out that the Bears are just one game behind North Carolina A&T (3-0 overall and 1-0 in the league), South Carolina State (3-2, 1-0), Delaware State (1-3, 1-0) and Norfolk State (1-3, 1-0)

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.

Cap Poklemba's kicking career began almost by accident. During his senior year at McDonogh in the fall of 1998, Poklemba was playing on the soccer team when football coach Dom D'Amico asked if he could kick a football. Poklemba walked out to the practice field with D'Amico, blasted a few balls a long way and got a job he didn't know much about. He knows a little more now. Poklemba, 34, won a championship with an indoor league team in Harrisburg last season after being lured from retirement.

NEW YORK - To say Zach Britton has been tremendous this season as the club's closer would be an understatement. He was 9-for-10 in save chances since taking over from Tommy Hunter and picking up his first save May 15 in Kansas City. Before Friday, his only blown save came May 27 in Milwaukee, when he allowed a two-out single to Jonathan Lucroy in a one-run game in the ninth. The Orioles eventually lost in 10 innings when Brewers pitcher-pinch-hitter Yovani Gallardo hit a walk-off double against T.J. McFarland.

At first, Megan Douty ignored the call from the strange number lighting up her cellphone during class in College Park a few weeks ago. When the number showed up again, she had left class, so she answered. The news stopped her in her tracks. The call came from a Tewaaraton Foundation official congratulating the Maryland defender on being named a Tewaaraton Award finalist. Walking across campus, Douty froze as the words hit her: "Tewaaraton finalist. " She, a defender, was one of the top five players in all of women's college lacrosse this spring.

Despite their winning record, the Bryn Mawr girls have struggled much of this season to put together a full 50 minutes of solid lacrosse. That changed Tuesday at Maryvale. The No. 6 Mawrtians won most of the draws, worked a patient settled offense and play stifling defense to take a 10-5 victory over the No. 4 Lions in a critical Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference game. "We definitely wanted this win - and a little revenge too for last year," Mawrtians senior Kate Snouffer said, referencing her team's loss to Maryvale in the A Conference semifinals last season.

Blast today Matchup -- Blast (17-11) @ Chicago (11-16) Time -- 5 p.m. Radio -- 680 AM Outlook -- The Blast moved into second place by a half game when Milwaukee lost its fourth straight game last night. A win today would give the Blast a one-game lead over the Wave with one game left and give the team control of its destiny -- meaning that a win in Saturday's season finale at Philadelphia would clinch second place and the home-field advantage in the playoffs' first round. The Blast has been playing the type of strong team defense that player/interim coach Danny Kelly wants, winning two consecutive games after losing four straight.

Saturday's 9-6 loss to Patriot League rival Bucknell was an exercise in déjà vu for Navy coach Rick Sowell. For what seemed to be the umpteenth time, the team played well enough to win, but failed to execute when it mattered the most. “We feel like we've been preparing well, but we've got to continue to tweak some things,” said Sowell, whose Midshipmen (1-2 overall and 0-1 in the conference) have dropped five consecutive Patriot League games and nine of their last 10 contests.

Two games into the 2014 campaign, Salisbury has already improved in a department that bedeviled the team last season. With Saturday's 12-11 overtime decision against No. 11 Lynchburg, the No. 5 Sea Gulls are 1-0 in one-goal decisions. Last year, they went 1-3 in one-goal games, which contributed to a 17-6 record and one of the last remaining at-large bids to the NCAA tournament. Coach Jim Berkman said the key to Saturday's win was reminding the players to simply stick to their roles without overextending themselves.
