Glenelg Country School hosted Friends Tuesday afternoon under threatening skies in what amounted to the 'B' Conference title match. Both teams entered the match with 5-0 records, but Friends came out on top, 5-0, to finish the season 6-0 and win the 2011 girls tennis conference title. At No. 2 Singles Allie Duncan played a close first set, but ultimately fell, 6-4, 6-1. At No. 2 Doubles, Katie Modrow and Nikki Reisher matched their opponents shot-for-shot, but lost in two close sets by the score of 6-4, 6-4. The other three positions were all able to at least take a set from their opponents.

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones admitted before Saturday's Game 2 of the American League Championship Series that he might need to be a little more patient at the plate for his team to get back into the series against the Kansas City Royals. Jones doesn't make any apologies for his aggressiveness at the plate, but he noted that the playoffs offer a different game, inherently smaller strike zones and more opportunity for batters to wait on their pitch to hit. And Jones has struggled in the postseason, entering the day just 5-for-42 with 11 strikeouts in 10 career playoff games.

Johns Hopkins, ranked No. 8 in Division III, finished its regular season 10-0 with a 52-21 road victory Saturday over McDaniel. The Blue Jays (10-0, 9-0 Centennial Conference) led 28-0 after the first quarter and capped their second unbeaten regular season in the past three years by routing the Green Terror (2-8, 2-7). Quarterback Robbie Matey scored on a 1-yard touchdown run on Hopkins' first drive. Daniel Wodicka caught a 5-yard touchdown pass, and freshman Jack Toner intercepted a pass and returned it for a score in the first quarter.

There will be no baseball played over the next two days, after the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants both punched tickets to the National League Championship Series with Game 4 wins Tuesday night. No baseball until the Orioles open the American League Championship Series on Friday night at Camden Yards against the Kansas City Royals. The Nationals were knocked out by the Giants on Tuesday, so there will be no Beltway World Series. The elimination of the Nats also means that the Orioles, who won 96 games in the regular season, are alone as the winningest team remaining.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh has mostly stuck to his script from previous preseasons, which means Saturday's game against the Washington Redskins will be quarterback Joe Flacco's final dress rehearsal for the Sept. 7 regular-season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. Flacco hasn't played in a preseason finale since his rookie year in 2008 and it's hard to imagine that would change this year, not with the Ravens opening the regular season with three divisional games in a 15-day span.

The Johns Hopkins football team went undefeated in the regular season for the second time in three years, captured the Centennial Conference title for the third consecutive year and the ninth time since 2002, and ranked as high as eighth in the most recent American Football Coaches Association poll. But do all those accomplishments fade in light of Saturday's 29-23 loss to No. 14 Wesley in a first-round game of the NCAA Division III tournament? “I don't know if it diminishes anything,” junior defensive end Michael Rocca said in a news conference after the contest at Homewood Field in Baltimore.

TORONTO -- Moments after their 1-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, the Orioles finally found out who they would face in the American League Division Series. It had been a 12-day wait since the Orioles clinched the AL East. But inside the visiting clubhouse of the Rogers Centre, as the Orioles packed their bag for the trip home to Baltimore - it wasn't baseball, but NFL football on the televisions. The Orioles believe they are ready for the Detroit Tigers, who will travel to Camden Yards to open the ALDS on Thursday.

COLLEGE PARK -- Many considered the Maryland volleyball team a one-season wonder.After last year's Atlantic Coast Conference championship and record-setting season, few believed that the Terrapins could repeat that success.Maryland wasn't ranked in the national preseason poll. The Terps were predicted to finish fourth in the conference by the ACC coaches.Even Maryland coach Janice Kruger admitted being slightly skeptical.The Terps answered their critics by going 25-0 to become only the eighth team in NCAA volleyball to complete an undefeated regular season.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Although the preseason is essentially meaningless, the Ravens' exhibition schedule could influence the start of their regular season. The Ravens face an unfavorable three-game road stretch this summer, playing their final two preseason games away from home and their regular-season opener on the road. In the schedule announced yesterday at the NFL owners meetings, the Ravens wrap up the preseason at the Minnesota Vikings and at the Washington Redskins. Because the Orioles are playing at home on the NFL's kickoff weekend, the Ravens will start the regular season on the road.

DETROIT -- As left-handed reliever Andrew Miller spoke to the media in the clubhouse hallway Sunday night after the Orioles' American League Division Series clincher in Detroit, he was interrupted by a bellow. "You did it, Andrew," said the excited voice. "You did it. " Miller smiled and shook hands with the giddy man to his right: Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette, who acquired Miller in a July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline deal with the Boston Red Sox. Whether you're an Orioles fan or you just happen to run the organization, it's hard not to be pumped about what Miller has done in his two-plus months in Baltimore.

The Ravens persevered through key injuries, an early division-heavy schedule, the challenge of grasping a new offense and seemingly daily off-the-field distractions to finish the first quarter of the regular season with a 3-1 record. But as players and coaches exited the locker room late Sunday afternoon after a 38-10 blowout of the Carolina Panthers, the solid start to the season was tempered by an understanding of the challenges ahead. Coach John Harbaugh and his players won't be talking this week about anything beyond Sunday's game in Indianapolis against the formidable Colts, but it's not a stretch to suggest that the next five weeks could define the Ravens' regular-season.

TORONTO - We've reached the final game of the regular season, and we still don't know the Orioles' opponent in the American League Division Series. Both the Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City Royals lost Saturday night, so Detroit goes into the final day of the regular season with a one-game lead. If the Royals win and the Tigers lose today, the teams will play a Game 163 on Monday to determine the AL Central winner.  Before you ask, we also still don't know the start time for the first two games of the ALDS at Camden Yards.

If there were such an academic discipline, Orioles manager Buck Showalter would have a Ph.D. in Roster Science. He has spent the past three years manipulating personnel at the major and minor league levels so deftly that the Orioles have averaged more than 90 victories and been in playoff contention for all but a couple of weeks last September, despite never being accused of having the best talent in the American League East. Clearly, he knows what he's doing, which should be comforting to Orioles fans who are waiting to see how he and executive vice president Dan Duquette configure the 25-man roster for the upcoming AL Division Series.

TORONTO - Right-hander Miguel Gonzalez is slated to start the Orioles' regular-season finale against the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday. Orioles manager Buck Showalter plans to give his relievers some work on Saturday and Sunday, with a three-day layoff looming before the playoffs start, so it's unclear how deep Gonzalez will go. “Obviously, Toronto will have something to say about that, but it won't be a normal outing,” Showalter said....

In a span of three games, the Ravens' ability to collect sacks has gone from a deluge to a trickle. The defense recorded just three sacks in the team's final three games of the regular season after posting 45 in the first 13 contests. Only the Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders had a worse showing over the same span with each defense compiling just two sacks. Opposing offenses have negated the Ravens' pass rush by adding a tight end or back to assist the offensive tackle against outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, who set a career high with 14 sacks during the regular season.

Johns Hopkins has released its schedule for the 2014 season. Here is a breakdown of the slate that awaits the Blue Jays, who went 9-5 last year and failed to qualify for their 42nd straight NCAA tournament. 10: The 10-goal benchmark was critical for Johns Hopkins in 2012. When scoring 10 goals or more, the team was 7-1. When held to fewer than 10 goals, the Jays went 2-4. 9: The program has captured nine NCAA championships, but the Blue Jays have not brought home a title since 2007.

Though there still is a slight chance that the Orioles could overtake the Los Angeles Angels and finish the season with the best record in baseball, it's far more likely that they will be the second seed and will match up against either the Detroit Tigers or Kansas City Royals in the American League Division Series. So, who do you think would be a more vulnerable opponent? It might seem obvious, since the Tigers have all those great starting pitchers and the best middle-of-the-lineup hitter in the sport, but there are also reasons to fear the scrappy Royals, who have a terrific bullpen and a very balanced offensive lineup full of guys who find ways to win. Guess that's why they are battling down to the wire for the AL Central title.
