The San Francisco Giants made sure this announcement arrived with little drama. The Orioles will play Game 2 of the American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers at Camden Yards at 12:07 p.m. on Friday, less than 19 hours after they are scheduled to begin Game 1 at 5:37 p.m. on Thursday. The Birds earned the earlier timeslot -- 3:07 p.m. was also an option -- because the Giants defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates, 8-0 , on Wednesday night in the National League Wild Card Game.

As the lyrics of everyone's favorite baseball anthem suggest, being a sports fan is really all about rooting for the home team. But what exactly does that mean when you live in a new town that is gradually becoming your home? When is it OK to pick up a new hometown team? As the Orioles have defied most odds this season and swept the city into an orange frenzy en route to an American League East title, I've been pondering these questions a lot. And there's one factor that truly complicates things.

Chris Tillman shies away from talking about his accomplishments this season because he doesn't want to give the inclination that he's satisfied with the steps he has taken. He had a remarkable second half, continued his emergence as a leader in the Orioles starting rotation and continued to gain the confidence of manager Buck Showalter. Tillman admits he's much more comfortable on the mound than he is talking about himself. And he knows success is fleeting over a long baseball season.

Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop listening to the Orioles on the radio on the front porch. Grandpa keeping score with pencil and paper. The yells of the fans floating over from Memorial Stadium. Chuck Thompson saying, "Ain't the beer cold. " Kids falling asleep on the ride home from the game. For many Baltimoreans, the story of the Orioles is the story of their family. It's a way for fathers and sons to talk, for mothers and daughters to connect, for grandparents to pass down traditions. Through the dark years of losing seasons, these families kept the Orioles magic alive.

Orioles center fielder Adam Jones glides through the home clubhouse in a T-shirt and basketball shorts, razzing everyone he passes with a bellowing voice and an even louder cackle. On the other side of the room is right fielder Nick Markakis, sitting quietly at his locker, rarely looking up. Markakis' choice of nonbaseball duds is often tan and green camouflage. Earlier this season Markakis walked into Camden Yards in head-to-toe camo, looking as if he had just vacated a tree stand in the woods.

A man working inside a rowhouse near Camden Yards was trapped under tons of debris for several hours Monday after the back of the building collapsed, Baltimore fire officials said. Rescue workers pulled the victim — who suffered life-threatening injuries — from the home at 528 S. Paca St. about 4:30 p.m. The building collapsed about noon, but crews spent hours attempting to secure the structure. During the rescue, officials shut down a portion of Russell Street, snarling traffic south of downtown.

NEW YORK - Right-hander Chris Tillman will make his postseason debut next week as the Orioles' starting pitcher in Game 1 of the American League Division Series at Camden Yards. It appeared evident that Tillman would start the Oct. 2 playoff opener once Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the pitcher would start Friday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays on one extra day of rest and then do the same going into the postseason. But Showalter officially announced the move before Tuesday's game against the New York Yankees.

The Orioles' games in the next week, for the most part, appear to be meaningless. But there is still something to monitor. The Orioles have to win one of their next seven games -- or have the Detroit Tigers lose once -- to clinch the second seed in the American League. (The Orioles have already clinched the No. 2 seed against the Kansas City Royals). That means there will be playoff matchups -- the first two games of the AL Division Series -- at Camden Yards on Oct. 2 and Oct. 3. It's most likely they'll be playing the AL Central winner, either the Tigers or the Royals.
