DETROIT -- The eighth inning came Sunday without any participation from the Tigers' bullpen - much to the delight of an emotionally brittle baseball town still enraged at the abomination in Baltimore. David Price did his job in Game 3, keeping manager Brad Ausmus from walking out of the dugout and motioning to the bullpen. But momentarily filling one hole exposed another. That's how history will critique the 2014 Tigers. Opportunity wasted. The Tigers' season ended in a 2-1 whimper.

Ravens OT Michael Oher vs. Steelers OLB James Harrison: Despite playing left tackle for the first time in his NFL career, Oher has fared reasonably well, and continues to get better every game. Oher is big, strong and quick. His first step is explosive, and he will need that quickness against Harrison, who has three sacks this season. Harrison is quick but powerful, and can change direction quickly. He'll give Oher problems. Edge: Steelers. Ravens QB Joe Flacco vs. Steelers SS Troy Polamalu: Flacco has struggled against the Steelers, especially when they play two-deep coverage.

COLLEGE PARK -- Indiana coach Kevin Wilson never worked under Mike Leach, and he was never on a staff with West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen. But Wilson runs the same type of up-tempo, Air Raid offense that Holgorsen learned under Leach at Texas Tech and now employs with the Mountaineers. The Hoosiers (2-1) run the ball more than most Air Raid-style offenses, but Wilson's offense plays fast and has proven capable of putting up a lot of points. Stopping that offense figures to be key for Maryland (3-1)

Aberdeen Eagles1993 record: 3-8. Coach: Sandra Salters.Top players: Loretta Anderson, O, Sr.; Shannon Edie, O, Sr.; Kelly Gast, G, Sr.; Kim Grant, O, Soph.; Mary Ishibashi, D, Sr.; Becky Mortus, O, Sr.; Maria Nasidka, O, Sr.; A. J. Poper, D, Sr.Outlook: A year of experience and a solid core of 12 returnees has the Eagles looking at a promising season. First-year coach Salters has the Eagles in better shape and there is plenty of depth at both ends. A senior attack could see good things, particularly with the addition of sophomore hopeful Grant.

Picture it: London, 1935. Richard Hannay is bored. Well, "tired of life, frankly." At 37, still "sound in wind and limb," he can't find anybody to pal around with, anything worth doing. Then, a flash of inspiration: a jaunt to the theater to take in "something mindless and trivial." What a mistake to make. Instead of something mindless, Hannay discovers something lifeless; instead of trivial, tribulating. So begins "The 39 Steps," a brilliantly constructed, exhilarating and just plain funny play breezing into Baltimore this week on the last stop of its national tour.

No one is making this comparison yet, but No. 14 Georgetown's sophomore attack of Travis Comeau , Zac Guy and Davey Emala might remind some fans of a similar group that has grown up and played together. But Emala said no one within the program has articulated the theory that their potential mirrors the production of No. 3 Maryland's attack unit of seniors Grant Catalino , Ryan Young and Travis Reed. "I wouldn't say we're there yet," said Emala, a Baltimore native and Gilman graduate.

I don't get the sense that anything is imminent, but the Ravens have been having ongoing conversations with Joe Flacco 's agent, Joe Linta , about a contract extension for the quarterback. Linta and Ravens vice president of football administration, Pat Moriarty , met last week for several hours at an undisclosed location, and they've done some negotiating over the phone since. Even if there is a difference in opinion right now in terms of Flacco's value, both sides are clearly working hard to bridge the gap. Former Ravens cornerback Chris Carr , who was released before the start of free agency, spent yesterday in Kansas City meeting with Chiefs officials and he reportedly will be in Minnesota today to talk to the Vikings.

A lead attorney in a multimillion-dollar settlement against Johns Hopkins Medicine said Friday that some clients complained to medical staff about improper exams before the internal investigation that uncovered illegal filming of female patients by gynecologist Nikita Levy. "All I know, and I'm taking the word of certain people who were patients, was at some point in time or some points in time, patients made complaints to hospital personnel," said Baltimore attorney Jonathan Schochor.

Buddy Green spent a total of four days at Anne Arundel Medical Center getting treatment for an undisclosed ailment. When the veteran defensive coordinator returned to Navy football practice Wednesday, it was suggested that spending too much time watching Western Kentucky's prolific offense prompted Green to hurry back to work. "Actually, watching Western Kentucky will put you back in the hospital," Green quipped. First-year coach Jeff Brohm has installed a pass-happy Hilltoppers attack that piles up yards and points at a rapid rate.

The committee tasked with filing a vacant City Council seat listened to more than four hours of testimony Tuesday evening from 14 candidates with a wide range of experiences. But when it came time to debate their relative merits, there was little discussion. The committee voted on only one candidate - Eric T. Costello, 33, the president of the Federal Hill Neighborhood Association - and approved him by an 11-2 vote, after considering the matter for less than five minutes. "I'm humbled and honored at the opportunity," said Costello, an information technology auditor in the U.S. Government Accountability Office.

Emotional about Ray Rice's release and still stinging from a season-opening defeat, the Ravens play AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers in two days. The quick turnaround looms for the Ravens following a disappointing game Sunday in which they lost, 23-16, to the Cincinnati Bengals. The potential of falling into an 0-2 hole in the division makes the Steelers game a pivitol one for a team that just dismissed one of its top players. "It was a tough loss," veteran defensive end Chris Canty said.

What do you do when the small speedboat you're using to escape illegally from Cuba runs out of fuel partway through the Gulf of Mexico? The vessel rocks uncomfortably atop large waves. You haven't eaten in days. You know what could happen if you're caught. You fear the worst. "The first thought was, 'Wow, I went through so much just to die on the edge,'" Dariel Alvarez, 25, recalled recently in Spanish. "I was scared to come so far and fall short. " Two years later, the Triple-A Norfolk outfielder is one of the Orioles' rising position prospects, combining a steady glove in the outfield with an electrifying plate presence.

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.

Andrew Miller arrived in Baltimore Friday morning with a full beard. He had come from the Boston Red Sox, where the growth of facial hair is welcomed, and a few players in the Orioles clubhouse hoped he would remain untrimmed. But Miller, the Orioles' newly acquired left-handed reliever, caught word quickly that beards "were not expected here," he said. When he met with the media about three hours before Friday's first pitch he was, for the most part, clean-shaven. "I want to fit in," Miller said.

The beach. The beautiful water. The strolls along the boardwalk for summer foods. The lovely house with the wraparound porch and the sunny breakfast nook. And the two-hour backup on the Bay Bridge. The rowdy, half-naked crowds pushing in line for french fries and saltwater taffy. The expensive rental house with the unstable porch, not to mention the dingy decor. Beach vacations can be a mixed bag - and that's when you've taken care of the things you can plan for. Bad weather, unexpected traffic and incompatibility among friends who don't work so well as weeklong housemates can all put a damper on what you hoped would be a great vacation.
