A consecutive-game playing streak shall be extended if the player plays one half-inning on defense, or if he completes a time at bat by reaching base or being put on. A pinch-running appearance only shall not extend the streak. If a player is ejected from a game by an umpire before he can comply with the requirements of this rule, his streak shall continue.

Opportunistic on offense and dogged on defense, the Broadneck boys soccer team accomplished something against Severna Park on Thursday that no other team has since 2012. The No. 11 Bruins got a goal from junior midfielder Ford Murphy midway through the second half and sturdy work on defense the rest of the way to earn a 2-1 win over the defending Class 4A state champion Falcons, ending Severna Park's 27-game unbeaten streak. Severna Park went 17-0-2 last season. The No. 2 Falcons, now 7-1-1 and 5-1-1 in Anne Arundel, finally found their match Thursday at Kinder Farm Park as the Bruins improved to 8-1-1 and stayed undefeated in county play at 7-0. Senior defender Will Hankins, assigned to mark the Falcons' All-Metro senior forward Daniel Kwon, was understandably tired following the game.

What writers around the country are saying about Cal Ripken's streak:'Pride of Baltimore'"Cal Ripken Jr. showed up for work again last night and he now stands side by side with the ghost of Lou Gehrig. The Pride of Baltimore has tied the Pride of the Yankees by playing in 2,130 consecutive baseball games, and barring bad luck or an impulsive decision to play hooky, Ripken tonight will stand alone as professional sports' all-time Iron Man. . . ."Sitting out tonight would be phony and contrived.

For the third time this season, Morgan State lost a game by less than a field goal. But unlike setbacks to Eastern Michigan on Aug. 30 and Holy Cross on Sept. 6, there was something different about Saturday's 15-14 loss to Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference foe Norfolk State. The Bears had entered the contest on a two-game winning streak, and the Spartans wallowed their way through an 0-4 start. But Morgan State (2-3 overall and 1-1 in the league) couldn't prevent Norfolk State from scoring a game-winning touchdown with 29 seconds left in regulation.

With another win Thursday night against the Texas Rangers, Orioles right-hander Miguel Gonzalez continued his quietly consistent streak of pitching performances. Gonzalez allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out four in the Orioles' 3-1 victory at Camden Yards . It was the 12th time in his 16 outings that he put together a quality start, and his seventh straight, the longest streak by an Oriole this year. During that streak, he's 5-1 with a 2.49 ERA in 47 innings.

"It's an unbelievable feat. Some day, somebody might hit 100 home runs, but nobody's ever going to play that many games in a row. And the fact is, that streak could still be going on."+ Earl Weaver, former manager"He called from home and said he was going to sit down. I said 'You're what?' I think what Cal's done is remarkable, and I'm just glad he was able to do it himself rather than someone else doing it just to do it."' Vi Ripken, Cal's mother"I think young kids today and even veteran players look at Cal and the streak and admire him I think it has helped baseball Young players are keeping themselves in better shape so they can play longer."

With 22 games remaining after Friday night's, Orioles manager Buck Showalter is still thinking optimistically. He still believes the Orioles are capable of putting together a lengthy winning streak - something they really haven't done this season. To date, the Orioles' longest streak of the season is five games, which began on the last day of the first half, July 14, and continued with the first four games coming out of the All-Star break. They've had two other four-game winning streaks this year.

Archbishop Spalding girls soccer coach Ashly Kennedy was not immediately certain who scored the go-ahead goal against Severn on Wednesday. By the time Sarah Ensor was identified as the goal's author, the No. 8 Cavaliers had won their 15th straight regular season game in the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference against teams other than McDonogh. Spalding fought back from a late deficit and scored two goals in the final 13 minutes to knock off the No. 3 Admirals, 2-1. "The energy was the game-changer in today's game," Spalding coach Ashly Kennedy said.

Baltimore City certainly did show off its best with this week's Star-Spangled Spectacular to residents and tourists ( "A spectacular weekend for Baltimore," Sept. 15). We were thrilled to see so many people lining the Inner Harbor promenade to enjoy tours of the visiting ships, watch the fireworks and dine at our local restaurants. And now the city prepares for Baltimore Book Festival, which moves to the Inner Harbor for the first time ever. Looks like the Orioles aren't the only ones on a winning streak, despite some recent setbacks.

Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman didn't have his best outing Sunday night against the New York Yankees, but he still extended his remarkable streak of consistency that has now lasted more than three months as he has solidified his spot as the club's ace. After allowing one run and five hits in 6 2/3 innings in the Orioles' 3-2, walk-off victory over the Yankees, Tillman has recorded 19 straight starts of allowing three earned runs or fewer. That mark ties him with Milt Pappas (1965)

The Orioles' September surge to the cusp of an American League East championship has been characterized by their strong starting pitching in general, and right-hander Miguel Gonzalez in particular. Gonzalez could tell early on against the New York Yankees that he didn't have his best stuff Saturday afternoon. His fastball command was off, making it difficult to put away opposing hitters. Still, Gonzalez held the Yankees to just three runs over six innings, giving the Orioles their 10th quality start over their past 12 games.

One of the reasons Seth Walker wanted to come to Calvert Hall was because of the school's spirited rivalry with Loyola Blakefield. Walker, who was home-schooled last year, not only got his first opportunity to play against the Dons on Wednesday, he also scored one of the biggest goals in the No. 7 Cardinals' young season. The sophomore got the game-winner in No. 7 Calvert Hall's 1-0 victory over No. 3 Loyola in a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference matchup.

The Orioles figured out a simple way Monday night to bust out of an offensive skid that cost them three games at Wrigley Field over the weekend. Get home -- and start homering. And keep homering, in consecutive at-bats, if possible, until you've beaten the opposition into submission and set a little franchise history. In a 9-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night, the Orioles had 14 hits -- including five home runs by five different players -- to snap their three-game losing streak.

On May 30, 1982, Keith Lockhart was a student at Northview High School, in Colina, Calif., and Cal Ripken started at third base for the Orioles, against the Toronto Blue Jays.Since then, Lockhart has been drafted, played for five organizations in 10 seasons of minor-league baseball, married, watched his first child being born and nearly retired. In all that time, Ripken hasn't missed a game.Lockhart, now 30, finally established himself in the majors for the first time this summer, with the Kansas City Royals, and on the night of July 22, he stood on the edge of the field at Kauffman Stadium and watched Ripken prepare to play in his 2,086th consecutive game.

CHICAGO -  Former Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta said it was different pitching against his old team Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field, facing so many familiar faces for the first time. Arrieta was a home-grown Oriole, once a can't-miss piece of the club's vaunted “calvary” group of young pitchers. But he struggled to find consistency in an Orioles uniform, leading to a trade that sent him to the Chicago Cubs in July 2013. But now Arrieta is flourishing with his new team, and on Friday he stifled the Orioles' bats, allowing just one run on four hits over seven innings in a 4-1 Orioles' loss to the Cubs, snapping the Orioles' four-game winning streak.

HOUSTON - The Orioles' offense didn't exactly erupt against the Houston Astros on Saturday afternoon, but it was productive enough to finally scrape out a much-needed win three days into their trip to Texas. These Orioles have drawn their share of criticism for being overly aggressive at the plate, complaints only compounded by two frustrating games here in which they scored just one run each night. But this time, they allowed patience to guide them to victory. They received their third straight quality start and this time took advantage of a well-timed strong outing from struggling ace Chris Tillman in a 4-1 win over the Astros before an announced 29,609 at Minute Maid Park.
