9/28/2014 | Markakis ready for a taste of postseason action
Nick Markakis has waited years to play in his first postseason.

But Markakis required surgery for a fractured left thumb weeks before the '12 postseason began, and had to watch from the sidelines.

9/28/2014 | For one O's fan, clinch an unforgettable memory
Kate Supan first knew her spontaneous celebration with Adam Jones was making a buzz just a few minutes after it happened.

9/28/2014 | A master craftsman, Duquette restores the foundation

9/27/2014 | Casilla called up by O's, inserted in lineup
Baltimore selected Alexi Casilla's contract from Norfolk before Saturday's game in Toronto. The 30-year-old hit .264/.315/.320 in 56 Triple-A games this season, stealing nine bases in 11 attempts while playing second base in 34 games and shortstop in 21 games.

Then Adam Jones and Steve Pearce tied it with homers in the ninth.

9/25/2014 | Jeter starts flashy DP as Yanks win challenge
In Derek Jeter's final career game playing shortstop, and final game at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees captain admitted he almost lost it on the field. For someone playing a position requiring total focus and communication for the last 20 years, he had trouble summoning it in Thursday night's 6-5 win over the Orioles.

The American League East-champion Orioles open a three-game series vs. the Blue Jays on Friday at Rogers Centre that will wrap up the regular season.
