After winning six Super Tuesday state contests -- the primaries in Ohio, Massachusetts, Vermont and Virginia, and the Idaho and Alaska caucuses -- Mitt Romney has reason to crow. Instead, he may be asking himself: If this is victory, what must defeat feel like? His successes in these states were accompanied by exit polls and other voter comments expressing ambiguous support for his candidacy. Questions cling to Mr. Romney concerning the legitimacy of his conservatism and his genuine comprehension of average voters, whose kinship he clearly cannot claim by wealth or life experience.

Marriage equality took one of its biggest leaps forward today without anything happening at all. By deciding not to hear any of the same-sex marriage cases appealed to it, the Supreme Court immediately voided bans on gay marriage in five more states - Utah, Oklahoma, Virginia, Indiana and Wisconsin - and likely did so in six others that are part of the same appellate circuits. It was the largest number of states to realize marriage equality on one day, topping the three (including Maryland)

Two seasons and 29 losses into his career as a varsity boys basketball coach, Butch Young assessed the damage and asked himself, "What am I doing here?"Never before had he put himself on the spot with such a question. Success always had come so easily. Two state championships as a player at Valley High in Western Maryland, and a 62-18 record in four seasons as coach of Brooklyn Park's junior varsity team.Those prosperous times seemed a distant memory, though, when his first two Severna Park teams were being pushed around on a nightly basis.

Madi Hall said she's part of Century's backup plan, just in case the Knights have to tangle with quality opponents and scoring is at a premium. So there she was late in the second half Monday, doing whatever she could to keep the ball from trickling into her team's cage while Manchester Valley tried furiously to mount a comeback. The senior's stick save on a loose ball with about 15 minutes to play was just one of a few defensive stops the Knights made during their 2-1 win, a victory that knocked the Mavericks from their share of first place in the Carroll County field hockey standings.

For the Hammond wrestling team, yesterday was nearly perfect. For Liberty, however, it was something less than that.Hammond, in a tri-meet at Liberty, dominated in a 42-13 victory over Chopticon and a 49-13 triumph over Liberty. The Lions, however, struggled, falling to Chopticon, 56-17, in addition to their loss to the Golden Bears.The Golden Bears exacted a measure of revenge in the two victories. Liberty edged Hammond, 30-27, earlier this season, and Chopticon handed the Golden Bears (4-1)

When the Orioles signed Rick Sutcliffe as a free agent last winter, there were more than a few skeptics around Baltimore wondering whether the 36-year-old pitcher with a recent history of shoulder problems would turn out to be another Dwight Evans.Good guy to have around but a player who long since has seen the top of the hill. Eight years removed from his Cy Young season with the Chicago Cubs, three years past his last injury-free season, Sutcliffe was brought to Baltimore more to be a role model for the team's young pitchers than to be the ace of the staff.

TIGER WOODS almost never relinquishes a lead. He wins coming from far behind as well -- as he did on Sunday, making up seven shots in seven holes at Pebble Beach. Power and finesse, confidence and grace, he may have it all -- and he's strikingly mature at the age of 24. Sunday's victory gave him six PGA championships in a row. He presses to match the record set in 1945 by the man called Lord Byron. Mr. Woods probably won't win another five straight. And yet he has already surpassed many of golf's best players of this and any era. When Byron Nelson went on his tear, professional golf was a relative infant.

The day of truth has arrived for the University of Maryland's football program. Were the two straight victories to open the season beginner's luck, or is it the beginning of an era?The Terps can climb back into national prominence at noon today with a win over No. 16 Clemson at Baltimore's Memorial Stadium. Maryland is off to its best start in four years under head coach Joe Krivak, who also is in the final year of his contract.But today's game is more than about winning streaks and a coach's job status.

The NCAA has removed any doubt about Navy's postseason football possibilities by declaring that the Midshipmen, who need one victory to clinch their first winning season since 1997, will become bowl-eligible with their next win. There had been some recent confusion regarding Navy (6-3) and how its independent status would affect its drive toward postseason eligibility. Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said he was told by an NCAA official that the Mids would need seven victories over Division I-A opponents, because Navy has no conference affiliation.

Jockey Edgar Prado reached another plateau at Laurel Park yesterday, riding four winners to move past Canadian Sandy Hawley's 515 in a year.Prado's total of 517 victories places him third on the all-time list behind Chris McCarron (546 in 1974) and Kent Desormeaux (598 in 1989) among riders campaigning in North America.With nine racing days remaining in 1997, Prado is not likely to approach Desormeaux's record, but he could challenge McCarron by averaging slightly more than three victories daily.

DETROIT -- Delmon Young, whose pinch-hit double pushed the Orioles to victory in Game 2, received the start in left field in Game 3 against left-hander David Price. Young was expected in the lineup, but the fact he was playing left and Nelson Cruz was the designated hitter was a bit of a surprise. Young had started just 17 games in left this year, and only three in September. Manager Buck Showalter said Young's familiarity with left field at Comerica Park - he was a Tiger in 2011 and 2012 - played a part into the decision.

When the American League Division Series started, I definitely felt like we were getting the second string team from TBS for the Orioles and Detroit Tigers. But after spending three games with them, I will take Brian Anderson, Joe Simpson, Dennis Eckersley, Jaime Maggio and the production team for this series anytime TBS wants them to call another O's game. With the O's winning 2-1 on Sunday and advancing to the American League Championship Series, sure there's a tendency to feel good about everything related to Sunday's game.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their immediate reaction to Game 3 of the American League Division Series between the Orioles and the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park. Eduardo A. Encina, reporter: The Orioles made it exciting to the end. They're now among the final four teams in baseball. On to the AL Championship Series. They beat the Tigers' three-headed Cy Young winner monster. And in Game 3, the Tigers' murderer's row of Torii Hunter, Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez were 2-for-15.

An announced sellout crowd formed a sea of orange throughout the seating bowl of Camden Yards -- waving orange rally towels that said “Welcome to October” -- ready for the return of postseason baseball to Baltimore. After nearly two weeks of essentially meaningless games since wrapping up the American League East title, the switch suddenly turned onto the bright playoff stage. The Orioles aren't content with just being in the postseason. They're aiming for the franchise's first World Series title in more than three decades.

Steve Smith only has been with the Ravens for about six months, but his teammates and coaches are starting to get a better read on the veteran wide receiver. So when John Harbaugh approached Smith in the training room before the game against the Carolina Panthers and asked him the most general of questions, the Ravens coach listened to the one-word response and was content. It was all that he needed to hear. “I said, “How are you doing? You doing OK?' and he said, 'Nope,' ” Harbaugh said.

When Eastern Tech football coach Marc Mesaros earned his 100th career victory Friday, he was more thrilled with the way his team played in its 51-7 win over Pikesville. The Mavericks, however, were more interested in the milestone, presenting Mesaros a football with "100" written on it. "All the kids signed it, and they had a big announcement at the end of the game. The kids dumped water on me," Mesaros said with a laugh. "It was a very nice show of affection and respect. "The 100-win thing is great.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Orioles are learning to like The Ballpark in Arlington, which was the site of some of the most painful moments of their 1996 season.Remember when they came here last April and gave up 43 runs in three games? Remember the night the Rangers scored 26 runs and the Orioles' bullpen featured a hard-throwing Dominican reliever named Manny Alexander? Another series like that and they would have had a full-fledged edifice complex.Forget about it. The Orioles hammered out 14 hits and withstood a ninth-inning rally by Texas last night to score a 9-7 victory over the Rangers and move to the brink of a three-game sweep in the same place where they were hammered unmercifully for three straight games a year ago.Forget about that, too. That team was in free fall after an impressive 11-2 start.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - From across the country, the Orioles had seen the headlines about the Anaheim Angels. They had heard about the remarkable turnaround that started in late April, and how it was a story of an offense that had finally hit its stride. So the Orioles came west expecting a Disneyland thrill ride, and they wound up seeing something more like a rusty old swing set. In the first 23 innings of the series, the Angels managed just one run. Orioles starter Travis Driskill kept them dormant last night until the seventh, and then the bullpen quieted the Angels for good.

The biggest thing the Sparrows Point girls soccer team stressed at halftime of Friday's game against No. 9 Catonsville was being sure to respond favorably if the Comets scored. So when the visitors did score a tying goal midway through the second half, the Pointers had a chance to apply what they discussed. They did so impressively. Sparrows Point came right back, getting a goal from Jamie Shiflett three minutes later and went on to claim a well-deserved, 3-1 upset win over Catonsville.

NEW YORK -- Over the past two decades, there probably has been no player who has caused the Orioles more heartbreak than Derek Jeter. And in his final game at Yankee Stadium, he found a way to beat them one last time. This wasn't the infamous "Jeffrey Maier home run" in the 1996 American League Championship Series or those 14 straight losing seasons in which Jeter and the New York Yankees used the Orioles as a division punching bag. Times have changed. When the teams took the field for Jeter's final game wearing pinstripes at Yankee Stadium on Thursday night, it was the newly-crowned AL East champion Orioles -- not the Yankees -- who were playing with something at stake.
