TAMPA, FLA. -- With a jab step and a quick cut, Ravens rookie wide receiver Michael Campanaro gained separation behind Tampa Bay Buccaneers nickel back Leonard Johnson. Then, Campanaro leapt over Johnson in the back of the end zone on Sunday to secure a lob from quarterback Joe Flacco during the first half of the Ravens 48-17 rout of the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium. "I was running the seam," Campanaro said. "We had single-high coverage and Joe put it right where it needed to be, and I made a play.

It's been a lot of years since there's been a professional sports year like this one for fans of the Baltimore teams. It was the year Seattle Slew won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes, "Star Wars" was first seen by movie theater audiences and Jimmy Carter took the oath of office to become president. It was in 1977 that the Orioles finished the year with a respectable record of 97-64 and in second place in the American League East. The Baltimore Colts finished the NFL regular season with a record of 10-4 and fell in the playoffs.

Gordy Combs, Towson University's football coach, was fired yesterday after a 17-year career in which he finished just above .500. School officials said they have begun a nationwide search to find his replacement. Only the third head coach in Towson's 40-year football history, Combs leaves with a 92-90 record and two years remaining on a contract extension he signed in 2007. The Tigers have struggled of late, winning three games in each of the past two seasons despite a ballyhooed offense and great expectations.

CLEVELAND -- At times, Cal Ripken wondered if he would reach the 20-home run mark this year, so he was gratified when he finally did it."It's been a struggle," he said yesterday. "I dug such a big hole at the beginning, it always seemed like I was scrapping to get out of it."I'd get close, then slide back down again. That makes this kind of special."When he connected Wednesday night against Chuck Cary in New York, Ripken became only the 12th player in major-league history to hit 20 or more in his first nine full seasons.

The year was 1998. Johns Hopkins coach Nancy Funk was one of the hottest names in Division III women's basketball, having guided the Blue Jays to back-to-back NCAA final eight finishes and a combined 49-10 record. A Division I school in the South was interested in luring Funk away from Hopkins and wanted to schedule an interview. Funk said she was content at Hopkins and felt at home at the D-III level. However, she gave in to the urging of friends and associates who insisted she owed it to herself to talk to the school.

Two former Stanford University aces who had good seasons -- even if somewhat disappointing by their standards -- hook up in Game 3 when the American League Division Series shifts to Jacobs Field tomorrow.For the Orioles' Mike Mussina, 1996 was an up-and-down season in which he failed in four chances to win his 20th game.For the Indians' Jack McDowell, the problem was a forearm injury that forced him to the disabled list for the first time in his major-league career.It is an interesting matchup of intelligent right-handers: one who has not fared well against the opposition (Mussina)

The Orioles' fourth state affiliate, the Aberdeen IronBirds, start in June.

If the circumstances were different, Matt Wieters might have been surrounded by reporters during Thursday's media availability at Camden Yards. As his Orioles teammates faced cameras and questions, the injured catcher faced the reality of sitting out the team's first American League Championship Series in 17 years. Wieters, who hasn't played since early May and underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in June, said the 2014 playoffs are the most significant games that he has missed since he had to sit out a summer All-Star game as a 13-year-old in Goose Creek, S.C. “It's difficult in the aspect that you want to be out there with your guys, you want to be out there on the battlefield playing, but at the same time, the way the guys have played have really made it easier for me,” Wieters said.

Stevenson's first loss of the season - a 31-10 thumping by Middle Atlantic Conference foe Lycoming on Saturday - dropped the Mustangs out of any mention from the latest American Football Coaches Association Division III poll. But as the program enjoys its upcoming bye week, coach Ed Hottle said there is still much to be optimistic about - including retaining a shot at what would be the school's first league championship in football. “All of our goals and things we want to accomplish are still very much out there for us,” he said Wednesday.

Judging by the spicy, sophisticated production of David Ives' “Venus in Fur," it's going to be an interesting year for the Columbia-based professional company Rep Stage, now in its first full season planned by recently appointed co-producing artistic directors Suzanne Beal and Joseph W. Ritsch. "Venus in Fur," a hit on Broadway in 2011, manages a neat little trick of turning tables and shifting centers of gravity as it confronts issues of desire, passion, sexuality and domination.

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.

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.

For 12 seasons, offensive tackle Jonathan Ogden was a cornerstone of the Ravens franchise. As the first player drafted by the team in 1996, he dominated the best defensive linemen of his generation, protecting the blind side of countless quarterbacks with his massive wingspan and opening holes for running backs with bulldozing power. Now, the end has come for the man who was just as likely to have a novel in his hand as his playbook. Knowing a toe injury would hinder his All-Pro playing ability, Ogden told The Sun yesterday that he will officially announce his retirement at a news conference today, a long-awaited decision that ends the career of one of the NFL's greatest offensive linemen.

After winning five Washington Area Theatre Community Honors awards and a Ruby Griffith Award for production excellence last season, the 2nd Star theater troupe is opening its 20th season with a production of Stephen Schwartz's biblical musical "Children of Eden. " Although its January 1991 London premiere received mixed reviews and closed after three months, "Children of Eden," with book and libretto by John Caird, has become such a popular offering in community theater circles that its initial struggles are a faded memory.
