In this podcast: 

  • 1:46: Baltimore Sun sports columnist Peter Schmuck talks about last night’s American League wild-card game, won with a walk-off home run by the Blue Jays’s Edwin Encarnacion off the Orioles’ Ubaldo Jimenez. With the Orioles eliminated from postseason play, there are two big questions today, one about the immediate past, the other about next season: Why did manager Buck Showalter leave ace closer Zach Britton in the bullpen, and where do the Orioles go from here?

  • 20:24: Sun reporter Justin George gives some background on his in-depth look at gun crimes in American cities, including Baltimore, and the growing lethality of gunfire. George’s series, “Shoot To Kill,” shows Baltimore to be one of the most lethal of America's largest cities while Washington and New Orleans shared the brutal distinction of one in three shootings ending in a homicide in 2015.
