CHICAGO - Orioles left fielder Nelson Cruz, who set a career high with his 34th homer of the season in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs, said playing at Wrigley Field offers an atmosphere unique from other ballparks. While this weekend marked the first time at Wrigley Field for several Orioles, who haven't played here since 2008, Cruz played three games at Wrigley Field last season while with the Texas Rangers. Entering Saturday, he was 4-for-15 with two homers at the ballpark.

CHICAGO - The Orioles' game against the Chicago Cubs this afternoon was delayed more than three hours by rain, with the Orioles trailing 4-2 at the end of the second inning. Play resumed at 5:31 local time (6:31 in Baltimore). Two batters before the game was delayed, Cubs left fielder Chris Coghlan drove in three runs with a bases-clearing triple off Bud Norris in the second inning, capping a four-run second inning that has yet to be completed.  The Orioles will make every effort to complete today's game to avoid having to play a doubleheader on a getaway day Sunday.

Maybe just a night sleeping in their own beds was all the Orioles needed for their bats to wake up following a weekend of Chicago slumber at Wrigley Field. "The hits, the runs, all of it,” shortstop J.J. Hardy said. “Slumped a little bit there in Chicago, but it's nice to come out first game this homestand and score some runs. " The Orioles blasted Tampa Bay Rays pitching with five homers in their 9-1 win Monday night in the first of 11 straight games at Camden Yards. They went 74 games between three-game losing streaks this season, which might be why being swept by the Cubs this weekend was so startling.

Full disclosure - I work for the Tribune Co. that Zell runs and is actually newly owned by an employee stock option program that's too complicated to be explained here. And more full disclosure - I freely admit that the circumstances regarding the new ownership and all its implications have a fair amount to do with how I feel about this, so if you have any complaints about how my opinion is influenced by self-interest, you can save the keystrokes. It's already admitted. Zell, who made a fortune in real estate and is a Chicago guy himself, makes the point that the gum people have been getting a free ride on the ballpark's name since then-Cubs owner William Wrigley named it after his family in 1927 and perhaps it's time that they pony up the cash like every other corporation that has its name on a sports building.

The National team, coached by former major league manager Larry Bowa, topped the American squad, 6-4, in the 2011 Under Armour All-America Baseball Game Saturday at Wrigley Field. The American team was coached by former Oriole Bill Ripken. Ripken's nephew, Ryan, of Gilman, was the lone player from Maryland and played for the American team. The game was delayed in the middle of the third inning because of heavy rain that hit the area. Play resumed after about a 90-minute delay, and the teams were tied until infielder Yairo Munoz hit a two-run single in the bottom of the eighth to give the National team a 6-4 lead.

CHICAGO - On a sunny summer day at Wrigley Field, time, at least baseball time, can seem to stand still.In this most perfect ballpark in America (sorry, Camden Yards, you're only the perfect imitation), some things never change. There is the splendid grass, the ivy-covered outfield walls, the hand-operated scoreboard, the bleacher bums who toss every enemy home run back onto the field in righteous indignation. And, of course, there are the Wrigley rooftops."Look at the rooftops!" Chicago Cubs announcer Harry Caray used to bellow as TV cameras panned the crowded tops of the 20 or so apartment buildings on Waveland and Sheffield avenues across the street from Wrigley.

The atmosphere was electric. Bundled-up fans got a chance to extend their New Year's Eve parties and watch hockey in a venerable stadium where baseball usually fills the seats. If the setting was different, the results were the same yesterday. The Detroit Red Wings beat the Chicago Blackhawks again, this time out in the cold at Wrigley Field in the Winter Classic. Players from both sides agreed on two things after Detroit's 6-4 comeback victory: The weather and the condition of the ice had little or no bearing on the result, and the overall experience was a blast.

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.

Penn State was picky in choosing game film to study Indiana. The Hoosier horror flick that was the 83-20 defeat last week to Wisconsin was tossed aside to focus on what Indiana did right its two previous games, losses to Iowa and Northwestern by a combined eight points. That's the team coach Joe Paterno thinks the Nittany Lions (6-4, 3-3 Big Ten) will face when the schools meet Saturday at FedEx Field in Landover, Md. "I watched it when it was … Wisconsin was ahead 30, 40 points and then I didn't waste time looking at it," Paterno said.

Let's be honest: This weekend is just killing time until next weekend, when a season's field could get flipped at Tuscaloosa's Iron Bowl and Reno's "Biggest Little Football Game in the World," Boise State at Nevada. Now is the time to muse, reflect, relax and take in a ballgame at Wrigley Field. America's pass time: Illinois and Northwestern are exchanging lineup cards Saturday at Wrigley Field. The football configuration is precarious to say the least, with only a few feet separating the back line of the east end zone from a padded wall.
