Last week, the Ravens, who studied sleeping patterns in the offseason, altered their practice schedule and their routine before Sunday's game. Despite those tweaks, Rice said Sunday that adjusting to West Coast time still “is the toughest thing for me to do as a professional.” He wasn't sure how much of a factor it was in the offense's slow start, though. The Ravens were shut out in the first half and gained just 90 yards on 32 plays. They were more productive after halftime, scoring 13 points in the second half and three more in overtime.

SEATTLE - The Orioles just finished a grueling 10-game road trip against three powers of the American League West with a 6-4 record and series wins in Anaheim and Seattle. It might have been the toughest stretch on the road this year, and the Orioles passed the test. But now they will have to face the Angels and the Mariners at home for a pair of three-game sets at Camden Yards. “It's going to be a memory by the time we leave here because we have two of the best teams in the American League coming in,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said following the Orioles' 3-2, 10-inning win over the Mariners on Sunday.

The Orioles' early afternoon start time Thursday was supposed to get the team in the air and to the West Coast at a decent hour. But after their 14-inning win over the Rays -- a five-hour, 14-minute marathon that ended with a 3-2 victory -- the Orioles were looking at a later arrival time in the San Francisco Bay Area. Orioles manager Buck Showalter doesn't hesitate to pick apart the inadequacies of the schedule, and he was quick to point out this week that the Orioles are the only remaining AL East contender that has to go out west this regular season.

SEATTLE -- The Orioles' 10-game West Coast road trip was a major test whether they could hold their own while playing against three playoff-caliber teams across the country. The trip was characterized by closely contested games - seven were decided by two runs or fewer - in which strong pitching and clutch hitting was often the difference. And on Sunday afternoon, as the sun set on what might be their most grueling stretch away from home this season, the Orioles finished the road trip with a 3-2 victory in 10 innings over the Seattle Mariners in front of an announced 26,523 at Safeco Field.

OAKLAND - The atmosphere at the O.co Coliseum during the Orioles' workout on Thursday evening was more like one that took place on the back fields of the team's spring training complex in February rather than the end of the All-Star break.  Orioles manager Buck Showalter held court near the pitcher's mound and instructed players on pickoff plays and bunt defense. Down the right-field line, pitchers took turns throwing bullpen sessions. The Orioles will begin the second half Friday here in Oakland, opening a three-city, 10-game West Coast trip against three teams that would be in the postseason if the season ended today - the Oakland Athletics, Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners.

There were plenty of the reasons for the Orioles to feel good about their 6-5, 12-inning victory over the Kansas City Royals on Thursday as they headed for a six-game West Coast road trip to Oakland and Seattle. It was their third series sweep of the season and their fifth straight win overall, a season high. It pushed them to a 24-24 record, the first time the Orioles have been at .500 since May 1. And it came in dramatic, comeback fashion -- the second time in three games in which they have beaten the Royals in their final at-bat.

In the final six weeks of the 2012 season, Joe Saunders exhibited a bend-but-don't-break style after coming over to the Orioles. The left-hander minimized damage to keep his team in the game long enough for the offense to come through, like in October when he started the Orioles' first playoff victory in 15 years. So it was a familiar sight for the Orioles as Saunders allowed baserunners in all six of his innings Sunday, only to hold his former team to just two runs in Seattle's 3-2 series-clinching win before 30,759 on a breezy and beautiful afternoon at Camden Yards.

OAKLAND, CALIF. -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter doesn't like to imply that one game is more important than another in a 162-game season, but he knows his team is facing a critical stretch coming out of the All-Star break. After winning 10 of 13, the Orioles began the second half of the season leading the American League East at the break for the first time since 1997, the last time the club won a division title. But the Orioles - currently four games up on the second-place Toronto Blue Jays - will lead off the second half by playing 29 consecutive games against teams with a record of .500 or better.

The early candidate for rap album of the year begins with a mother warning her son to stop following in the footsteps of his incarcerated father. The colorfully delivered advice was given to Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, the 24-year-old rapper better known as YG who performs Wednesday at Baltimore Soundstage. Although YG did not adhere to the counsel (he spent six months in jail for residential burglary before he signed to Def Jam in 2009), the Compton, Calif., MC proved he was on his own path with the release of “My Krazy Life,” an acclaimed first album that debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 in March.

Mark Hall's resume makes it safe to say that he's a bona fide rock star. He's the lead singer of Casting Crowns, one of the most popular and successful Christian rock bands working today. The Grammy-nominated group, which will headline Baltimore Arena on Saturday, has been Billboard's top-selling act in Christian music since 2007, selling more than 8 million records worldwide. But Hall's rock star title takes a backseat to his other job. Hall, 44, is a student pastor in Atlanta, and he has refused to choose between the two since the release of the band's first album in 2003.

LOS ANGELES -- The prospect of waking up a half-hour earlier isn't exactly wowing Los Angeles area brokers and traders -- especially when they already must get ready for work in the middle of the night.The earlier hours are the result of this week's decision by the New York Stock Exchange to begin trading 30 minutes earlier, at 6 a.m. (9 a.m. New York time).The change, scheduled to begin Sept. 9, is being made to recapture trading now done on the London and Tokyo exchanges.For West Coast traders, the 30-minute extension means regular floor trading will last from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Various artistsThe West Coast Jazz Box (Contemporary 4CCD-4425)See if this scenario doesn't sound familiar: A radical new form of popular music develops in New York and, within a few years, establishes a strong underground in Los Angeles.Eventually, a second wave rolls out of the New York scene and is picked up in L.A., where it takes on a distinctly local feel. Suddenly, the style now has a "West Coast" and "East Coast" sound, which stirs some resentment. Fueled by the music press, a rivalry develops between the two coasts, with fans lining up on one side or the other.

Though New Year's Eve is less than a week away, even last-minute party planners have time to add a Maryland sparkling wine to their celebrations. With seven of the state's 56 wineries producing America's version of champagne, the local wine industry has a lot to offer. "Most well-made sparkling wines have a freshness imparted by the effervescence and the bright fruit," says Kevin Atticks, executive director of the Maryland Wine Association, which is based in Timonium . And besides, "Bubblies are interesting and look so nice in the glass," he says.
