An announced sellout crowd formed a sea of orange throughout the seating bowl of Camden Yards -- waving orange rally towels that said “Welcome to October” -- ready for the return of postseason baseball to Baltimore.

WASHINGTON -- If Jack Kent Cooke gets his stadium, Washington gets the World Cup final -- that is the formula District of Columbia Cup organizers are following.But Baltimore might not want to cheer Washington's bid for the title game.Cooke, owner of the Washington Redskins, is planning to build a new, 78,600-seat stadium for his NFL team. At that capacity, Washington could qualify for the world's soccer championship game, something that RFK Stadium -- which would hold 60,000 for the game -- probably couldn't do.If RFK Stadium were used in the proposal for games, the World Cup Washington Region bid committee will not seek the title contest, committee chairman John Koskinen said last week.

By increasing the defensive pressure and working for a mix of midrange jumpers and layups, the No. 8 Scorpions regrouped to finish like the defending county champions that they are. A 10-1 run midway through the fourth quarter helped Oakland Mills break open a four-point game and create the separation needed to earn a 78-71...

OAKLAND, Calif. - Traveling to the West Coast for their longest road trip of 2013, and kicking it off in their personal palace of horrors, it wouldn't have been surprising if the Orioles would have come out flat Thursday night. Instead, they seemingly awakened after two blasé innings to batter the Oakland Athletics, 10-2, and win for just the fourth time in their last 20 games at the Oakland Coliseum. Starter Jason Hammel pitched six solid innings, leadoff hitter Nate McLouth continued his recent torrid streak and all nine Orioles starters had at least one hit. “The first couple innings I felt like we had a little jet lag working," said first baseman Chris Davis, who hit his eighth homer of the season in the sixth inning.
