The Orioles packed their bags and headed to Detroit late Friday afternoon, but it was clear that they were in no hurry to leave the orange embrace of the fans in Baltimore or the surreal environment that enveloped Camden Yards during the first two games of their American League Division Series. "I've been in World Series … I've been in the World Baseball Classic … I've been in the All-Star Game, and I never heard nothing like this," said Game 1 hero Nelson Cruz. "It was so loud, my ears were ringing.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their immediate reaction to Game 1 of the American League Division Series between the Orioles and the Detroit Tigers at Camden Yards. Dan Connolly, reporter: Thursday's 12-3 Orioles victory was exactly how the club drew it up -- really the way this team has executed things much of the season: Solid enough starting pitching, excellent relief outings and a couple key longballs. And then they piled on against a shaky bullpen.

An announced sellout crowd formed a sea of orange throughout the seating bowl of Camden Yards -- waving orange rally towels that said “Welcome to October” -- ready for the return of postseason baseball to Baltimore. After nearly two weeks of essentially meaningless games since wrapping up the American League East title, the switch suddenly turned onto the bright playoff stage. The Orioles aren't content with just being in the postseason. They're aiming for the franchise's first World Series title in more than three decades.

Thursday's sellout crowd meant that every seat in Camden Yards was filled, including the worst in the ballpark. The five seats in Section 306, Row 25 - even with the foul pole in right field and level with the roof of the eight-story B&O Warehouse - are about as far from the action as you could get. But the view isn't bad - only a portion of right field was obstructed - and, most importantly, the fans still felt they were part of the game....

With as much electricity as there appeared to be at Camden Yards on Thursday night, it would be hard not to have a high-energy telecast. Give cable channel TBS credit for that: It did a solid job of communicating the color, excitement and sheer joy in the stands for the American League Division Series opener as the Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers, 12-3. It might seem like an obvious choice, but coming out of commercials time and again with hand-held cameras in the face of fans in full orange-and-black regalia as they clapped, cheered and waved signs was definitely the way to go. I loved the field-level shots looking up into the stands.

Business was brisk outside Camden Yards as game time approached. "Yeah, we're pretty busy," said Patrick Bordner, busy selling hot dogs and other ballpark staples at Wild Bill's East on Conway Street (not to be confused with Wild Bill's West, over near Pickles Pub). "We're not used to having this many people here this early. " True, it was only 30 minutes before game time. But apparently fans were arriving at the park pretty early. No surprise, given the heavy rush-hour traffic that everyone was trying (unsuccessfully)

Rolando Sanz did a highly important job at Thursday's Orioles playoff opener. That job just didn't involve staying for the whole game. Sanz, an operatic tenor born and raised in Rockville, belted out a raucously well-received national anthem at 5:30 p.m. Later, he dashed to Mount Vernon, where the curtain raised at 8 p.m. for his performance of "Amleto" with the Baltimore Concert Opera. "I've got enough cushion to catch a couple innings," Sanz said before ducking into a back room at Camden Yards to warm up with scales.

Frank Fried was born a few months before the Orioles won their last World Series, so the 31-year-old mechanical engineer's memories of his favorite baseball team are mostly painful. Like many fans, Fried believes that the drought will end this month, a result that would not only thrill the city but also boost the local economy. A partial season-ticket holder, Fried will be at Camden Yards for Thursday's Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers, as he was nearly three dozen times during a regular season when the Orioles were one of the best teams in baseball.

With the Kansas City Royals' thrilling, 12-inning victory in the American League wild-card playoff game early this morning, the start time for the Orioles' first game of the divisional playoffs has been set. The O's will play the Detroit Tigers at 5:37 p.m. Thursday at Camden Yards. The game would have started a half hour later had the Oakland A's won the wild-card game. The Orioles will send Chris Tillman to the mound in Game 1 against 2013 Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer.

The Orioles hadn't even thrown a postseason pitch in 2014, and already Orioles manager Buck Showalter has rolled out the heavy artillery. Around 4:15 p.m. on Wednesday, a few minutes before Showalter was supposed to speak to the media and a little less than an hour before the club's workout at Camden Yards began, Orioles Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson walked into the home clubhouse. Showalter had asked the club legend to address the team before the American League Division Series, which begins on Thursday at 5:37 p.m. at Camden Yards.
