It's not that the Glen Burnie-based Coyote Running Club has anything against races in the Baltimore metropolitan area."We have a meeting this week and we're going to run the Myers Pavilion [8K on March 7]. That's a nice race," the Coyote's George Nislein says. "We ran the Super Bowl 5K last week. We ran the [Annapolis Striders'] 10-miler last summer. And we did their Anniversary Run a few weeks ago."But when the urge hits the 11-member group -- or the racing schedule in these parts is light -- the Coyotes are not averse to traveling.

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.

NEW YORK -- One day after being held to one hit, the Orioles found their bats Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. The Orioles hit three home runs, including Nelson Cruz's 40th of the season, and had 17 hits in a 5-4 win over the Yankees in front of an announced 43,201, putting a dagger in New York's already faint postseason hopes. In Monday's series opener, the Orioles managed just one hit in a 5-0 loss, marking the 11th time they've been shut out this season. But they've responded to those games well.

Fourteen years after a jog around the track turned into a walk down the aisle, Jeff and Karen Cohen are still the proud owners of Feet First, a sneaker and athletic clothing store in Columbia. The 2,000-square-foot shop in Wilde Lake Village Center has long been a landmark for local runners, an unofficial headquarters for their running club, Howard County Striders, and a growing part of the Cohens' life. "People here are very athletic," Karen Cohen said. "And people that are running marathons or just exercising in general, they want the equipment to fit properly - which are your shoes."

To listen to Roy Elder is to take a tour of road racing stops in the Middle Atlantic area."I travel to Charlotte, N.C., for their marathon," Elder said last week. "And I do the Virginia Beach Marathon. And the Colonial Williamsburg Half-Marathon. And the Chambersburg Marathon. I do that one every year. I ran Pittsburgh [marathon] only once. And, of course, I did Harrisburg [marathon] three times. And I do all the 10Ks and 10-milers that come up around here."In all, Elder, 63, a resident of Bowley's Quarters in Baltimore County, has run 32 marathons.

With nearly two dozen Orioles greats in attendance to commemorate the franchise's 60th anniversary, manager Buck Showalter felt a certain pressure for his club to perform Friday night against the St. Louis Cardinals. As the Orioles wore cream-colored replicas of the inaugural 1954 club's uniforms, the organization welcomed back 23 Orioles Hall of Famers with an elaborate postgame ceremony, complete with a fireworks display and laser-light show. But the fireworks started early.

As Ubaldo Jimenez walked off the mound in the middle of the eighth inning of the Orioles' 7-1 win over the Texas Rangers on Monday night, he was greeted by the home crowd at Camden Yards with a standing ovation. The reception hasn't always been as warm for Jimenez, who was signed to a club-record four-year, $50 million contract in February. He has heard his share of boos from the seating bowl after many disappointing and short outings. On Monday, Jimenez could stand tall, and he touched the bill of his cap to the crowd after delivering his deepest outing of the season and earning his first win in an Orioles uniform in front of the home crowd . “As a ballplayer, that's what you play for, to be there for the fans, to get a good [cheer]

The owner of a West Baltimore restaurant has been charged with operating an illegal after-hours club, police said, after a triple shooting this month in which a man was killed outside the establishment. Timothy Fraser, 58, owner of Ras-a-ter International, was charged Tuesday with two counts of operating his restaurant as an illegal bar, three counts of failing to have a licensed security firm on premises and three counts of violating capacity limits of 150. Baltimore housing authorities say the charges, based on city zoning codes, are a first step toward halting predawn operations at the restaurant.

A day after Orioles reliever Kevin Gregg 's abysmal relief appearance in Sunday's 9-2 loss at Toronto — an outing in which the right-hander went through seven batters to get one out with two down in the sixth inning, allowing five runs to score — manager Buck Showalter expressed support for the maligned pitcher. For Gregg, who is making $5.8 million in a bullpen role that's still undefined, it was his second straight rocky outing. He allowed a decisive two-run 10th-inning homer to Nick Swisher in a 6-4 extra-inning loss to the New York Yankees on Wednesday.

Dozens of local running enthusiasts greeted the new year bright and early on Jan. 1 by taking part in the Father Time Frolic, a 5-mile road race run that's held annually in the Loch Raven area beginning at 9 a.m. on New Year's Day. Hosted by the Baltimore Road Runners Club, the race winds its way around Loch Raven Reservoir Peerce's Landing on Dulaney Valley Road, to Providence Road, and back. The race is a "predicted time race" - meaning participants are not allowed to wear watches, and winners are determined by those closest to their predicted time.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Orioles' resurgence in the past month has seamlessly dovetailed with the hiring of manager Buck Showalter, baseball's handyman who continually demonstrates a knack for fixing dilapidated teams. Since he took over Aug. 2, the club with the then-worst record in baseball suddenly is winning plenty more than it loses, feasting on scuffling clubs like the Los Angeles Angels, who have lost their grip on any postseason hopes. On Sunday, the Orioles won 1-0 to complete a three-game series sweep and a six-game season sweep of the Angels, a club that had never before lost every contest against the Orioles in one season -- a trend that dates back to when they began playing each other in 1961.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Third baseman Aubrey Huff was in a crouch, his elbows resting on his knees, his eyes staring straight ahead. Brian Roberts was near second base, his arms resting behind his back and his eyes fixed on the ground. In the outfield, Jay Payton stood completely still with his arms folded, while Nick Markakis paced back and forth with his back to home plate. By the sixth inning yesterday, the Orioles had the look of a beaten and battered team that couldn't wait for this three-day nightmare at Tropicana Field to end. When it finally did before an announced 32,379, the Orioles had absorbed a 10-4 loss and a humbling three-game sweep in which they were outscored 34-16.
