"Did you ever notice Mike when he came off the mound after a good inning?" asks Alex Flanagan, widow of the Orioles Hall-of-Famer who committed suicide a year ago. "He always had his head down. " That provokes a vivid memory of No. 46, the smart pitcher who studied all and fooled many of the 11,684 batters he faced over 18 major league seasons. He was the long-haired lefty with a mustache who won the American League Cy Young Award in the Orioles' 1979 World Series season. He was all business on the mound, and Alex is correct about Mike's demeanor during his walk to the dugout after most of his 2,770 innings: head down, serious, pondering what he had just done well or not so well.

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.

A century ago in spring training, a rawboned Orioles rookie stepped to the plate, swung from the heels and hit a fastball deep to right field. The ball landed in a rut in a cornfield, more than 400 feet from home plate. In Fayetteville, N.C., a historic marker notes the spot where George Herman Ruth, 19, hit his first professional home run in his first outing as an Oriole in 1914. He wasn't yet The Babe - teammates would pin that nickname on him within the month - but he surely was Baltimore's own. That Ruth began his career with his hometown team surprises many, sports historian Mark Millikin said.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Orioles will have to wait another day to attempt to cut into the Kansas City Royals' 2-0 lead in the American League Championship Series. Rain fell at Kauffman Stadium throughout the day Monday, and the Orioles were going through their usual gameday preparations when Major League Baseball announced around 4:30 p.m. ET that Game 3 would be postponed until Tuesday. Games 4 and 5 also will move back a day, eliminating Thursday's scheduled day off. Peter Woodfork, MLB's senior vice president of baseball operations, said more than an inch of rain had fallen at the time of the postponement, with the forecast calling for storms to continue throughout the night.

Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz will make his fourth spring start today against the Phillies at Ed Smith Stadium, going against Phillies ace Roy Halladay. It's also a big day here at Ed Smith because Nick Markakis, who has spent the entire spring recovering from offseason abdominal surgery, will make his first start in right field today. He's made three starts at DH, going 2-for-8. Kevin Gregg, Jim Johnson, Willie Eyre, Zach Phillips and Pedro Strop are also slated to pitch today for the Orioles.

The big news Monday night was that the Orioles won again and have reduced their magic number for clinching the American League East to one over the Toronto Blue Jays. The New York Yankees have been eliminated from the division title hunt. With the Orioles' next win, the champagne corks pop and the club secures its first AL East crown since 1997. The subplot from Monday was perhaps more intriguing. In the fifth inning, veteran infielder Jose Reyes came dashing home on a single and catcher Caleb Joseph attempted to tag him out. Fairly routine play.

Heavy rain forecast through the night in Kansas City prompted Major League Baseball to postpone American League Championship Series Game 3 between the Orioles and Royals in Kansas City. Nearly three-quarters of an inch of rain had fallen there as of 3 p.m. central time, and as much as another half inch of rain is possible through Monday night, according to the  National Weather Service 's Kansas City forecast office. Game 3 is now set for 8 p.m. Tuesday, with Game 4 at 4 p.m. Wednesday and Game 5, if necessary, at 4 p.m. Thursday.

We're back at Connolly's, where we're gonna start pricing our rail drinks based on how many points the suddenly, high-powered Ravens offense scores weekly. I'm kidding about that - I'm gouging you people with ridiculous prices, because you can't stay away from the witty banter - and I'm not turning to football yet. The bartending crew - Pete Schmuck is really just a keg lifter, but we try to include him - is all in Kansas City. We're chewing on barbecue and the idea of the Orioles' season ending in Kauffman Stadium.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Don't let all the predictable denials fool you. The steady rain that postponed Game 3 of the American League Championship Series was just what the doctor ordered for an Orioles team that could use a little celestial intervention to cool off the sizzling Kansas City Royals. Who cares if it was a doctor of meteorology? The Royals have won six straight postseason games and seven straight overall dating back to the last day of the regular season, so anything that interrupts their biorhythms should be more than OK with the Orioles.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Even if the Orioles end up losing to the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series this week, there's a sense that the experience itself will help the club going forward - especially for the younger players who didn't participate in the 2012 postseason. "It's huge, especially because I hope we are back here next year and the near future, and hopefully I am starting one of these games," rookie right-hander Kevin Gausman said. "Any time you have success in the postseason, it definitely helps, not only yourself but your confidence level and also says a lot about your career.

For some fans, it's not enough in this memorable, extended Orioles' season to merely watch the games. They yearn to preserve the all-too-fleeting moments - to touch them - by buying pieces of the season. They want to own the one-of-a-kind lineup cards that manager Buck Showalter displayed in the dugout during the American League Division Series and in the championship series that continues tonight against the Royals in Kansas City. Monday's game was rained out in the best-of-seven series, in which the Orioles trail, 2-0. Fans want to own the ball J.J. Hardy hit for a home run in the division series sweep of the Detroit Tigers.

Facing a daunting 0-2 deficit in the American League Championship Series, the Orioles will need more than a little luck to make it to the World Series. They need some magic. For more than three decades, the team's penchant for comebacks has been captured in a song many fans still sing today. "Orioles Magic (Feel It Happen)" has accompanied the O's through the heyday of Wild Bill Hagy, through a 1983 World Series championship, through Cal Ripken Jr. 's 2,632-consecutive-game streak and through a 14-season playoff drought that ended in 2012.

The Orioles head to Kansas City down two games in the American League Championship Series as play shifts to Kauffman Stadium for the next three matchups with the Royals. They're facing unprecedented odds. Since the LCS round went to a best-of-seven format in 1985, no team has lost the first two games of the series and came back to win. It's a tough mountain to climb in the flat Midwest, especially against a Royals team that has seen everything go its way and has won all six of its postseason games this year.
