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.

Laurie Schwartz's recent letter cheering the Inner Harbor 2.0 Plan after the Star-Spangled Spectacular and the Orioles' victory in the division is a positive note of which Baltimore can be proud ( "Baltimore's winning streak," Sept. 18). Ms. Schwartz has done a marvelous job over the years bringing out the best in Baltimore as president of the Waterfront Partnership. Cloning her would be to our advantage, but her optimism about the Inner Harbor 2.0 Plan needs to be tempered with a concern for how to accomplish it successfully.

Dave Cottle doesn't mince words. In the same conference call Wednesday in which he declared that the Chesapeake Bayhawks were “not afraid” of the Major League Lacrosse-leading Denver Outlaws, the Chesapeake Bayhawks coach colorfully described his thoughts on the Charlotte Hounds' three-game winning streak heading into Saturday's regular-season finale at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. “I don't care about Charlotte's momentum. That means nothing to me,” Cottle said.

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.

In the days leading up to his final game in the Army-Navy football rivalry, senior inside linebacker Cody Peterson is keenly aware of what is at stake for him and the rest of the Midshipmen, who have won the last 11 meetings in the annual series against their archrivals. "I think as a senior, you have a responsibility to uphold the standard as far as Navy football goes," Peterson said Wednesday morning during media day at Lincoln Financial Field. "There's pressure to get No. 12. We want to make sure that we do our job as seniors and leave on a good note.

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.

How about this for irony? In the year of The Streak, the Orioles can't put one of their own together.Cal Ripken Jr. is the talk of baseball for having played in 2,098 consecutive games, but the Orioles haven't won more than four in a row this season.In fact, they haven't won more than four in a row since early September 1993 -- a span of 225 games over three seasons.Incredibly, they have had 10 four-game winning streaks in that span (six last year, four this year) and failed to win the next game all 10 times.

Andrei Kirilenko had 14 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, and the Utah Jazz defeated the Portland Trail Blazers, 111-101, last night in Salt Lake City to end their 13-game winning streak. The Blazers lost for the first time since a 100-79 road defeat to the San Antonio Spurs on Dec. 2. They won their next 13, including two over the Jazz, and were three victories away from tying the franchise record. "It was a great month for us. We lost the first game of the month and the last game of the month.

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.

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.

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.

The Orioles are in the exact same place they were when their current four-game losing streak began - atop the American League East standings. As the Orioles open their four-game series in Kansas City tonight, they will still hold a half-game lead over the Red Sox and Yankees. The top four teams in the division are separated by 1 ½ games. Last-place Tampa Bay is just 3 ½ back. That's what makes every series so critical in the AL East. The Orioles' current skid would have been much more painful has it not been for their season-high five-game winning streak last week.

McDonogh's girls lacrosse streak lives on - but just barely. The No. 1 Eagles rallied from two goals down with less than six minutes left Wednesday to edge No. 5 Severn, 13-12, for their 111th straight victory and the chance to play for their sixth straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship. Megan Whittle scored the game winner with 1:18 left, rolling the crease with a crowd of Admirals defenders but still finding a low opening to the net. Olivia Jenner then snatched the draw out of the air, giving the host Eagles the possession they needed to hold on for their first one-goal victory in nearly two years.

Gilman running back Jason Lee scored twice in the second quarter yesterday as No. 1 Gilman improved to 6-0 overall, including 2-0 in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association's A Conference, with a 33-7 rout of Loyola before an estimated homecoming crowd of 3,000. "Our big weapons are Ambrose Wooden and Malcolm [Ruff], so teams key on them," said Lee, who finished with 43 rushing yards. "Plus our coaches saw that our line was handling their guys. I was able to take advantage on the inside."

Everything from here on is "icing on the cake" for McDonogh's No. 1 girls lacrosse team after it broke one last record Saturday. With their 105th straight win, 15-8 over North Harford, the Eagles added what is believed to be the national mark for consecutive games without a loss to their swelling record book, surpassing Loch Raven's 104-game unbeaten streak between 1973 and 1982. Then, the Eagles won No. 106 over previously undefeated No. 7 Mount Hebron, 15-7, to take the title of the Mount Hebron Fight for Five Tournament at Cedar Lane Park.
