BALTIMORE (AP) ? At long last, Sam Perlozzo's patience has been rewarded. When the Baltimore Orioles dismissed Lee Mazzilli as their manager on Thursday, they gave the job to the 54-year-old Perlozzo on an interim basis. The Maryland native has seven weeks to demonstrate what he asserted 22 months ago: No one is better suited to be manager of the Baltimore Orioles than Sam Perlozzo.

The best game of Major League Baseball's 2009 postseason didn't come in the playoffs. After 162 games had been played, the Minnesota Twins and the Detroit Tigers were deadlocked with records of 86 wins and 76 losses. This forced one extra game in Minnesota to determine the division winner. The game started at 5 in the afternoon, meaning school kids would be able to stay up until the end, which didn't arrive until nearly five hours later as the Twins won 6-5 in 12 heart-stopping innings.

Only Chris Davis stands between Miguel Cabrera and baseball history. As he heads toward the conclusion of another sensational season with the Detroit Tigers, Cabrera has a decent shot at becoming the first major league player to win the Triple Crown in successive seasons. After Monday's games, Cabrera comfortably led the AL with a .359 batting average, 29 points higher than runner-up Mike Trout. His 130 RBIs were best in the league, too, eight better than Davis. In home runs, though, Davis held a 46-43 advantage.

Don't you love a challenge? I know I do. When my sports editor challenged Baltimore Orioles fans a few weeks back, I thought for sure we'd get deluged with e-mails, letters, etc. Instead, well, let's just say it's been less than overwhelming. My sports editor, Mark Keller, made a bit of a wager with the Orioles fans. He said that would not finish .500 or better. Maybe after losing two of three to the Tampa Bay Devil Rays over this past weekend, he has a point. Mark was so sure of himself, he put himself on the line.

With the Baltimore Orioles' pitching prospect expected on the mound at Municipal Stadium on Sunday, the question was, would Orioles fans show up like Washington Nationals fans did when prospects Bryce Harper and rehabilitating starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg played home games with the Hagerstown Suns last year? Orioles fans definitely showed up as there appeared to be more Orioles hats and shirts in the stands than Nats' or even Suns' gear. Whether the crowd was bigger for Dylan Bundy or Harper depended on who was asked, as fans had differing opinions.

This is the stuff of dreams, a game played on neighborhood fields with no locker rooms, a few rows of bleachers and the scent of worn leather in the air. Here, there are no millionaire owners feuding with millionaire players. There are no high-priced tickets and skyboxes. Fans watch the game for free, bringing their own blankets and lawn chairs and dropping a dollar into a hat for a team fundraiser. Young and old, they share something unspoken — a love of baseball.
