NEW YORK -- There was some consolation following the Orioles' 5-0 loss to the New York Yankees on Monday night. Following a night in which the Orioles managed just one hit, manager Buck Showalter was told that despite the loss, the club clinched home-field advantage in the American League Division Series with the Detroit Tigers' loss to the Chicago White Sox. With the AL East sealed, the Orioles are still chasing the league's best record --...

Some very slow-moving gray bugs I call "skinny" stink bugs (not aggressive or biting) are getting inside from the floor or fireplace. Are they breeding in walls? My kids are scared of bugs, and I would love a safe solution. These docile insects may provide you with a good teachable moment for bug-shy kids. The leaf-footed pine seed bug looks similar to a slender stink bug but their interesting back legs resemble pointed oak leaves. They feed harmlessly on pine seeds and buds.

Now that the Orioles have clinched the American League East title, the regular season is all over but the roster shuffling. The Orioles headed into Wednesday night trailing the Los Angeles Angels by three games for the top seed in the AL while leading the Detroit Tigers by seven games for the third seed. It puts the Orioles into a bit of a baseball limbo: Do they try to catch the Angels and not give their regulars as much rest over the next 11 games, or do they forget about trying to get home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, be happy with the No. 2 seed and try to spell their regulars?

Sloane Stephens, the No. 2 seed in the Citi Open and the 15th-ranked player in the world, dropped her first-round match to No. 88 Olga Puchkova, 7-5, 6-3, at William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center. The 20-year-old lumbered stiffly around the baseline with her head down between points, body language that indicated she was searching for the game that helped her beat Serena Williams in this year's Australian Open. "I just didn't play that well, wasn't feeling the ball great," Stephens said.

As remarkable as 41 consecutive berths in the NCAA tournament are, Johns Hopkins has been unseeded just once (2010) during that span. The Blue Jays, who were awarded the No. 2 seed in the upcoming tourney, are very familiar with that position. They are 18-7 as a No. 2 seed and won national championships in 1974, 1978 and 1980. Coach Dave Pietramala chuckled when informed of that history. “All I can say is, I hope,” he said late Sunday night after the bracket was released.

The selection committee's decision to award the No. 1 seed to Loyola Sunday night was the first time the program had earned that seed since 1999. That year, the Greyhounds went 12-0 as the only undefeated team in Division I, but fell to No. 8 seed Syracuse, 17-12, in the quarterfinals. The coach of that squad was Dave Cottle, and the current coach of the Chesapeake Bayhawks of the Major League Lacrosse relived the memory of that loss during a phone interview Tuesday. “I know in '99, we were devastated that we were the only undefeated team in the country and we had to play the winner of Syracuse-Princeton at Princeton,” Cottle said.

Brenda Frese's 4-year-old son, Tyler, squirmed in his mother's lap Monday as they waited for word on where Maryland's women's basketball team would be seeded and whom the Terps would play in the first round of the NCAA tournament. If Tyler was impatient, so was Frese. The coach and her players have been eager all season to get back to the tournament and eclipse the memory of last season's second-round loss to Georgetown on Maryland's home court. After waiting for most of the televised selection show, the Terps (28-4)

The Fighting Irish are making their second appearance in an NCAA tournament final and their first since 2010, when they fell to the Blue Devils, 6-5, in overtime. Duke is 2-2 in title games and is making its third appearance since 2010. Sixth-seeded Notre Dame (12-5) has won six straight games, which began with a run to the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament title in late April.

"A couple more nights in the greatest city in the world. " Those were the words shouted by a Duke player in an M&T Bank Stadium tunnel moments after the Blue Devils' 15-12 victory over Denver in Saturday's NCAA men's lacrosse Final Four matchup. Powered by a resurgent fourth quarter, in which Duke scored three of the game's final four goals, the top-seeded Blue Devils will be able to keep their hotel reservations in Baltimore. They'll spend their second consecutive Memorial Day playing in the national championship, in which they'll face No. 6 seed Notre Dame in a rematch of the 2010 title game.

Prior to a date with Maryland in a semifinal of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament on April 25, Notre Dame was on the cusp of being eliminated from postseason consideration. A loss would have given the Fighting Irish a 6-6 record with only a regular-season finale against Army remaining on the schedule, and qualifying for the NCAA tournament requires at least a .500 record. But Notre Dame removed all uncertainty by edging Maryland and Syracuse for the ACC championship and earning the league's automatic qualifier for the NCAA postseason.

Around the time they entered the locker room after their 114-93 victory Monday over the two-time defending champion Miami Heat's B team, the Washington Wizards were feeling good on two fronts. First, the win helped them hold on to the sixth seed and move within one-and-a-half1/2 games of the Brooklyn Nets in the Eastern Conference. And second, the Atlanta Hawks entered the fourth quarter against the seventh-place Charlotte Bobcats with a 15-point lead. But by the time the locker room had cleared, leaving only John Wall remaining to speak to reporters, the Bobcats had rallied to defeat the Hawks, 95-93, on a running jumper by Chris Douglas-Roberts, making sure the final day of the regular season will matter.
