O's late rally falls short in finale with Red Sox
Sunday brought the fanfare of a regular-season home finale at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Nelson Cruz was presented with the Most Valuable Oriole award, while fans were also honored on the field before the game. Even though the O's suffered a 3-2 loss to the Red Sox, the 38,329 in attendance couldn't go home too disappointed. The postseason still lies ahead in Baltimore.
Call upheld in Red Sox-Orioles finale
After Caleb Joseph hit a grounder in the seventh inning, the Red Sox thought the inning should have been over. Ryan Flaherty was called out at second, but Joseph was ruled safe at first. After a review of 3 minutes, 35 seconds for John Farrell's challenge, the call was upheld.
O's allowing Markakis, Pearce to heal
Nick Markakis and Steve Pearce were both noticeably absent again from Sunday's starting lineup, although Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he wasn't overly concerned and expected both to play during the team's upcoming four-game series in New York.
William A. Fogle Jr., who had been Mayor William Donald Schaefer's executive assistant and all-purpose trouble shooter who later became secretary of the Maryland Department of Licensing and Regulation, died Wednesday at his Glen Rock, Pa., farm of complications of a stroke.
It was the first day of camp, a busy day at the swimming pool of the Baltimore Jewish Community Center in Owings Mills. Amid the happy splashing, lifeguard Jalina Ray spotted something that didn't look right. She got the attention of fellow lifeguard Andrew Minkin, and pointed to an 8-year-old thrashing underwater.

OBAMACARE AND HOME INSPECTIONS
By Brujo Blanco
I read an article in Freedoms Outpost regarding Obamacare and home inspections. Now these home inspections are allegedly done for the children in the home. This Obamacare is going to be a financial and imposing problem unless it is stopped. Check out the standards that will be used for which homes are to be inspected:
“Families where mom is not yet 21. “
“Families where someone is a tobacco user.”
“Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities. “
“Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States. “
Regarding the standard with the mom that is under 21. Is this age discrimination? Sounds like it to me.
Regarding the crap about the tobacco user. I am not a smoker but smoking is not an illegal activity.
The one that I really take issue with is the standard regarding current or former military members. There have been Obama type comments about the dangers of military and former military. We are not living in a society in which the military is a group to be watched with suspicion. I guess the concept is that these people can strike at any time.
I really believe that Obamacare is not about healthcare but about control. Obamacare will make firearms a medical issue. Also, in the subject matter of this article Obamacare will also be used to access the home. I believe it is an excuse to get into the home and snoop. Perhaps they will make note of religious items, publications, patriotic decorations, and the presence and/or absence of guns. This will be an intrusion. There is a tendency for government to want to have regulatory authority to do an end run around the Bill of Rights. I believe that there is a place for safety inspections but not inspections used as a subterfuge to search a house. I am also a fiscal conservative and I am interested in what this program will cost. There will be a requirement for many government inspectors to be hired, trained, and deployed. I take the Bill of Rights seriously and I take them as restrictions placed on government and not on the people.

Tucker's field goal lifts Ravens over Browns 23-21 (The Associated Press)
On the field, there are few questions about the Baltimore Ravens. With the Ray Rice case lingering over them, the Ravens pulled off a comeback win as Justin Tucker kicked a 32-yard field goal as time expired to give Baltimore a 23-21 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Tucker's boot capped another challenging week for the Ravens (2-1), who continue to be dogged by their handling of Rice's domestic violence suspension. Following the game, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh addressed an ESPN report that claims he wanted the team to immediately release Rice after he was arrested for punching his then-fiancee.
U.S. senator says no place for violence in NFL (Reuters)
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Women of the U.S. Senate have taken notice and will speak up about how the National Football League has handled domestic abuse cases involving its players, a leading lawmaker said on Sunday. Several recent cases involving NFL players harming their partners or children have embarrassed the league, prompting NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to apologize on Friday and promise reforms. That has not silenced the criticism. ...
Ravens tight end Pitta injures hip vs Browns (The Associated Press)
Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta was taken to a hospital with a potentially serious hip injury Sunday. Pitta, who played only four games last season after dislocating his right hip in training camp, appeared to re-injure the same hip after catching a short pass from Joe Flacco late in the first half against the Browns. The 6-foot-4, 245-pound Pitta took several steps before stumbling and falling without any contact. Pitta stayed on the ground in obvious pain and was consoled by teammates as the medical staff evaluated him.
Manziel fools Ravens with trick play (The Associated Press)
Johnny Manziel showed he can act on the field as well. Cleveland's hyped rookie quarterback fooled Baltimore's defense with a trick play in the second quarter on Sunday, but had his big gain after catching a pass called back by a penalty. After replacing starter Brian Hoyer and handing off on a running play, Manziel appeared to be leaving the field when he ran toward the sideline. He stopped a little short of the sideline, and with his back to the action, pretended to have an animated conversation with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan when the ball was snapped.
Pierce, Rice's replacement, out for Ravens (The Associated Press)
Baltimore Ravens starting running back Bernard Pierce will miss today's game against the Browns with a thigh injury. Pierce had started Baltimore's past two games, filling in for Ray Rice, who was released by the team and suspended indefinitely by the NFL this month for domestic violence. Pierce will be replaced by Justin Forsett, who has averaged 6.6 yards on 19 carries and scored a touchdown through two games.
Week 3 injury report: RBs Foster, Pierce out; WRs Jackson, Allen active (Shutdown Corner)
Two starting running backs are out, but two big-name banged-up receivers will give it a go in Week 3. Houston Texans running back Arian Foster and Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce both have been ruled out for Week 3. Rookie Alfred Blue is expected to start in Foster's place for the Texans against the New York Giants. Justin Forsett figures to start for the Ravens against the Cleveland Browns. Foster is dealing with a balky hamstring, and Pierce has a thigh injury. On the good-news side of the ledger for injuries, Washington Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson is going to get his chance to go against his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, despite a shoulder injury he suffered last week. Jackson was released by the Eagles without much notice this offseason, with his former head coach, Chip Kelly, saying the move was for football reasons . The Redskins, of course, have deactivated quarterback Robert Griffin III, who suffered a dislocated ankle. It will be Kirk Cousins who gets the start for the Redskins on Sunday. San Diego Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen, who was limited in practice this week with a groin injury, is active Sunday against the 2-0 Buffalo Bills. In other Week 3 NFL injury news: • For the Browns, a surprise: Tight end Jordan Cameron, who was not expected back until after the team's Week 4 bye, is active Sunday against the Ravens. He is playing through pain with a shoulder injury. • The St. Louis Rams will start Austin Davis again at quarterback, with Shaun Hill still working back from a thigh/quad injury. Interestingly, both quarterbacks are active and they are the only two quarterbacks on the active roster against the Dallas Cowboys. Rams receiver Tavon Austin (knee) is inactive. • The Cowboys will be without linebackers Rolando McClain and Justin Durant against the Rams. Bruce Carter might have to be shifted into McClain's middle linebacker spot, and the Cowboys could be forced to play a lot of nickel Sunday. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.
