After nearly a decade of winning over local and out-of-town crowds as the lead singer of Fools & Horses, singer-songwriter Matt Hutchison suddenly became a solo act after the band broke up in October 2011. Since then, he's played wherever they'll have him — colleges, coffeehouses, the Night Cat in Easton, Joe Squared in Station North, to name a few places — trying to rebuild the interest his previous band earned. Consistent gigs are good, but it's difficult to gain listeners without releasing albums.

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.

Just about every time the Tampa Bay Rays have been mentioned to Buck Showalter in the past month, he can't help but talk about Drew Smyly, the left-handed starter the Rays received from the Detroit Tigers in last month's blockbuster deal that included All-Star left-hander David Price. Showalter has gushed about Smyly for parts of three seasons. The Orioles had inquired about his availability periodically during that span, but they never could land him. Based on his performance in the Rays' 3-1 victory Wednesday at Camden Yards, the Orioles can't be happy about facing Smyly a whole lot over the next four-plus seasons.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado said he isn't trying to hit home runs, but they keep coming anyway. After hitting just four homers in his first 50 games, Machado has five in his last eight games. The latest was a solo shot Wednesday, part of a 3-for-4 performance in the Orioles' 6-2 loss to the Washington Nationals at Camden Yards. “Just trying to simplify the things and just make contact with it,” Machado said. “At the end of the day, the end results will happen.” But his recent uptick in power has accompanied a generous boost in batting average, too. Machado was hitting just .218 on June 11. Since then, he has raised his average to .269, thanks in part to his current 12-game on-base streak.

THE DAYS OF swashbuckling adventurers might be long gone, but the desire to challenge mind and body remains. For many of us, daily life can be a challenge. But some take up pursuits well beyond the ordinary. Take local sailor Howard "Bud" Schindler, who challenged nature and has a tale to tell of his solo 26-day trip, exploring little-known nooks and tributaries of the Delaware and Chesapeake bays on his 22-foot Sailmaster, the "Sherry D." He tells about it in a book, "Between 2 Bays and the Sea," published in December, that recounts his discoveries and the adventures experienced along the way. Schindler, a longtime sailor who grew up along the shores of the Magothy River, was inspired to make the attempt after meeting Robert deGast at a lecture in 1977.

CHICAGO -- Being swept out of the Windy City this weekend by a Chicago Cubs team already auditioning for 2015 roster spots didn't sit well with Orioles manager Buck Showalter. By the end of their 2-1 loss to the Cubs on Sunday afternoon, the Orioles had seen enough of historic Wrigley Field. Held hitless by former teammate Tsuyoshi Wada for six innings, they managed just one hit overall on the day. The Orioles (73-55) left Chicago having scored just one run -- Steve Pearce's seventh-inning solo home run, which broke up Wada's no-hit bid -- over 16 innings after play resumed Saturday following a three-hour, nine-minute rain delay.

Seth Adelsberger is a 34-year-old Baltimore painter and printmaker. He does not have a master's degree from an art school, he is not represented by a gallery, and he has not won a prestigious prize. Nonetheless, on Sunday, a solo show that distills Adelsberger's visual experiments over the past five years opens at the Baltimore Museum of Art . The exhibit is an unusual honor for an unproven painter, signaling to the art world nationwide that museum curators think Adelsberger is a talent worth watching.

In its trek to reach Annapolis from California, an Annapolis cycling squad was slightly ahead of a team that includes Pippa Middleton — sister of Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge — late Thursday as they took part in the 3,000-mile Race Across America. The 30-year-old Pippa Middleton is completing the race with seven others to raise money for the Michael Matthews Foundation, a childhood education nonprofit, and also for the British Heart Foundation. But Team Friends Foundation, of Annapolis, had a 60-mile lead on Middleton's team when the cyclists passed through Indiana on Thursday morning.

Five innings had passed Sunday, and the South team still didn't have a hit. "It was kind of a joke in the dugout for a little bit how we were going to no-hit them," North pitcher Peter Solomon (Mount St. Joseph) said, with a grin. "It kept on going and going, but we eventually knew they would get a hit. " The South only had three hits, though, as the North's four pitchers led the way to a 4-2 win in the annual Brooks Robinson All-Star Game at Camden Yards. Jamal Wade (St. Paul's)

Long, who retired from the practice of law in 2001. "He was an incredible man and friend. There were no airs about him. " The son of a grocer and a homemaker, Arthur Lampe Rhoads Jr. was born and raised in Frederick, where he graduated in 1942 from St. John's High School.

There are choreographers who will bend over backward to make their works accessible and audience-friendly. New York choreographer Molissa Fenley is not that type of choreographer or performer.Her three solo works, performed Saturday evening at the Baltimore Museum of Art as the final installment in the "Off the Walls" series, required stamina -- not only from the performer but also from the audience. Her dances are not the kind you can mindlessly slip into; they are abstract, often frustratingly so, and require attention.

And on the fourth day, the Orioles played. They won, watched it rain, and then they won again at nearly 1 a.m. with a walkoff homer by Matt Wieters in the 10th inning. After a scheduled day off Monday, followed by consecutive rainouts Tuesday and Wednesday - the first time they've been postponed consecutively since 2004, and the first time it has happened at Camden Yards since 2000 - the Orioles and the Pittsburgh Pirates finally played on what was supposed to be a mutual day off Thursday.

TORONTO - Balls can fly when the roof of the Rogers Centre is closed, so the Orioles still had plenty of time Wednesday after they fell behind by five runs in the second inning against the Toronto Blue Jays. And designated hitter Nelson Cruz, who was signed by the Orioles early in spring training, powered the club to a 10-8 comeback win over the Toronto Blue Jays with his 11th career multihomer game, including a go-ahead grand slam that capped a six-run fifth inning. “It wasn't pretty, but we got it done,” Cruz said.
