It's taken eight years, but Cory Redding is finally part of a winner in the NFL. Before joining the Ravens, the defensive tackle had only played on losing teams. Six years in Detroit and one in Seattle brought 84 losses and tough finishes to the season. That's why getting the ninth win of the season Monday night — which clinched a winning season for the Ravens — dominated Redding's thoughts last week. "That's all I focused on was the No. 9," he said. "I slept with nine fingers under my pillow.

David Eisenhauer quickly made a name for himself during his first cross country season last fall after his family moved here from Washington state. As a junior at Wilde Lake, he found success in big races, capping his season with a second-place finish in the Class 3A state meet. Eisenhauer has continued that success this fall. He scored a 49-second victory at the Seahawk Invitational last week and posted another big win in Saturday's Howard County Invitational at Centennial. The senior won on a cloudy morning, finishing in 16 minutes, 37.44 seconds and easily beating out Paint Branch's Lorenzo Neil (17:06.64)

The student: Dane Brown, 16 School: Wilde Lake High School Special achievement: Member of the winning team at the Conference Quiz Bowl sponsored by the National Society of Black Engineers at the University of Maryland. What he says about it: "Going into the Maryland competition, I didn't know how many teams to expect or what the local competition would be. So I didn't go expecting to win because it was our first time doing this. During the competition at College Park, I could tell that we had a good chance of winning.

The top-ranked Severna Park boys were dominant in the 2013 cross country season, capped by a spectacular effort in the Class 4A state championship race at McDaniel College. In that race, the Falcons finished with 38 points, crushing second-place Dulaney (114) and everyone else. Ryan Forsyth won the race as Severna Park placed five runners in the top 14. Forsyth, a star fresh off Anne Arundel and East Regional titles, could have skipped the race and the stacked Falcons still would have won. The best teams often feature dominant runners, but not always.

On the same day that Miguel Tejada was named Most Valuable Oriole and homered twice, the shortstop offered his employers a little advice. "I think if this team wants to win," he said, "the last thing they should do is trade me." Tejada, who suggested last winter that a change of scenery would be beneficial, noted that he has three years remaining on his contract. He also praised the young talent on the ballclub. But the bottom line always will be about winning. "I like to play every day for something," he said.

When Cory Redding drives to training camp this week, the only new starter on the Ravens' front seven will likely be seen with license plates that read: HTRA. It stands for Having The Right Attitude. Its meaning cuts much deeper. When Redding's uncle was in a Texas jail years ago (for reasons Redding declined to discuss), he saw a guard viciously beating a fellow inmate. The guard said this was punishment for disrespecting him. On a nearby wall, there were four letters painted that Redding has embraced throughout a challenging NFL career.

This time, there were no excuses.There was only one turnover and no fourth-quarter collapse. The receivers got open, and the inconsistent quarterback was consistent. A running back rushed for 100 yards, and the team passed for more than 300 yards.Finally.On a day when the fans cheered wildly in the final quarter, the Ravens (5-7) turned in their best effort of the season in a 41-14 win against the Tennessee Titans (9-3) yesterday before 67,854 at PSINet Stadium.Yes, it was a blowout. The Ravens scored 17 unanswered points in the fourth quarter, thanks to Jermaine Lewis' 39-yard touchdown reception and a 47-yard interception return for a touchdown by safety Rod Woodson in the last six minutes, to secure their first victory over a winning team this year and end the Titans' 13-game win streak against AFC Central opponents.

ASHBURN, Va. -- They came at different times, for different reasons, and with different perspectives. When Brandon Lloyd arrived at Redskins Park last spring after spending his first three seasons in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers, he looked at the trade as a chance to play with a winning team and a veteran quarterback, and in the new high-powered offense Al Saunders had just brought from Kansas City.

It was exactly one year ago today that Lee Mazzilli was fired as Orioles manager. "It doesn't seem that long," he said. He's not sorry to be gone. Trust me. I couldn't get Sidney Ponson's attention before the pre-game stretch, and I'm not sure he would have talked to me anyway. A New York television reporter asked Ponson if he had any special feelings being back in Baltimore. "None. Zero," he said. "I'm just happy to be on a winning team." roch.kubatko@baltsun.com For more "Roch Around the Clock," go to baltimoresun.

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 Long Reach and Pikesville boys track and field teams won state titles on Saturday in the championship meet at Morgan State. The Manchester Valley girls also took home a team title, but all three teams took different paths to their crowns. For the No. 6 Lightning, it was their second straight Class 3A state crown, after winning the indoor title. Robert Carter and Tosin Oyewole carried the team, which scored 68 points, ahead of No. 5 Wilde Lake (50.5). Both Carter and Oyewole won two events and ran together on two first-place relays.

After outscoring Pennsylvania by a combined 74-2 in its three previous meetings this season, the Blast faced a much different Roar team Saturday night, one more committed to blocking shots and defending its goal. Pennsylvania kept four players behind the ball and put a forward just above midfield as a target for counterattacks. Playing its second game in as many days, the Blast overcame some early struggles to pull away for a 16-5 victory before an announced 4,585 at Baltimore Arena.

During the golden age of Major Indoor Soccer League in the 1980s, the game featured players who dazzled fans with their nifty footwork, creativity and individual skills. Blast veteran forward Adauto Neto showed similar form Friday night against the visiting Missouri Comets. In the second quarter, he tied the game with a side-winding, half-volley from deep in the right corner that found the top of the net. With the game still tied in the third quarter and the Blast on a power play, Neto's perfectly timed backheel pass in tight quarters found a streaking Lucio Gonzaga, who scored to give the home team its first lead.

The Houston Texans lost their top tackler two weeks ago when middle linebacker Brian Cushing went down with a season-ending knee injury. A week later, they were embarrassed by the Green Bay Packers, 42-24, on their home field as Aaron Rodgers threw six touchdown passes, the Texans couldn't run the football and their special teams faltered. Earlier that day, the Ravens outlasted the mistake-prone Dallas Cowboys, 31-29. In the process, they lost their leading tackler (Ray Lewis) and best cornerback (Lardarius Webb)

The major twist on this season of The Apprentice has been dividing the teams into "haves" and "have-nots" by forcing the losing team to sleep in tents outside the mansion where the winning team is living it up. On Sunday's episode, members of undefeated Kinetic muffed their task big time, meaning they not only lost but also had to move to the outdoors camp for the first time. While the just desserts were fun to watch, it was also nice to see Arrow finally win (thanks to the efforts of project manager Aaron, who is from Columbia)

If you were an Orioles fan at Camden Yards on Sunday, it was a game that whipsawed your emotions. Oh, you were pumped before it started, weren't you? Your team was all alone in first place in the American League East. You were part of a great crowd (an announced 33,919) in a wonderful setting, with thousands of Little Leaguers parading around the field and the Orioles wearing camouflage uniforms for Military Appreciation Day.

MILWAUKEE — Sometimes Zack Greinke goes to a park not far from his new home and stares out at Lake Michigan. This is his favorite part of this new place. Maybe he'll get a boat. He'd like that. Everything here is new. Everything feels fresh. The Brewers are in first place and Greinke is undefeated at home in his new life. Back in that old life, in Kansas City, Mo., the closest the Royals were to first place this time of year was 18 games behind. Here, in this new life, the Brewers already are thinking about how to set up their playoff rotation.
