DETROIT - It doesn't get much better than this for a ballgame: The sky is blue, the temperature a delightful 74 and the Tigers are in the midst of a two-run, fourth-inning rally at their new stadium. Seated in a half-empty upper deck at Comerica Park, Jeff Nail, a 45-year-old manager for the U.S. Postal Service, is at a loss to explain why more people aren't here on this Sunday afternoon to enjoy the game. "They come down for the casinos. They come down for the festivals. And the traffic is always tied up when the Red Wings play," Nail said.

DETROIT - The Orioles are one win away from advancing to the American League Championship Series as they prepare to face the Detroit Tigers in Game 3 of the AL Division Series on Sunday afternoon at Comerica Park. If the Orioles do sweep the Tigers, it would mark their first playoff sweep since the 1971 ALCS win, three-games-to-none, over the Oakland Athletics. Left-handed-hitting Ryan Flaherty will start at third base against Tigers left-hander David Price. Nick Hundley will start at catcher after Caleb Joseph started Game 2. Price, who the Orioles know well from his days with the Tampa Bay Rays, only faced them once this season.

DETROIT -- The Orioles sprayed beer and champagne at each other for the second time this season, but it was almost like they were going through the motions after Sunday's heart-stopping victory over the Detroit Tigers propelled them into the American League Championship Series. Their division title celebration was more intense because it was the culmination of a terrific regular season. This time, there was the sense in the visitors' clubhouse at Comerica Park that the postseason had only just begun.

DETROIT - Right-hander Bud Norris is now scheduled to be the Orioles' Game 3 starter on Sunday at Comerica Park.  Even though the Orioles had never officially announced a Game 3 starter, right-hander Miguel Gonzalez had been expected to pitch that game. Showalter left open wiggle room to tweak his ALDS rotation, and both pitchers were available to pitch in relief for Games 1 and 2. But Showater said that Gonzalez would have only been used in relief in case of an emergency. In the postseason, the next day's scheduled pitcher usually has a news conference with the media.

Quote: "Actually when I went to the hotel, I watched HBO. I tried to avoid any kind of sports channel because I knew what was going to happen." -- umpire Jeff Kellogg, whose call on a bizarre play in the 11th inning Monday night helped the Yankees beat the Rangers It's a fact: Monday's postponed game was the 35th called game in history for the Mariners on the road and the sixth time they have had a game called by weather in Chicago. Who's hot: The Royals are 16-for-17 on attempted steals.

Orioles closer Jim Johnson saved his 37th game of the season Sunday aftenoon in the Orioles' 7-5 series-clinching win over the Tigers at Comerica Park with another stress-free 1-2-3 ninth inning. The save tied him with former Orioles closer Gregg Olson for second-most saves in a single-season in club history. The first-time All-Star is having a career year in his first season as the Orioles' closer. What makes Johnson's season more spectacular is his success on the road, where he's converted 23 of 24 save opportunities, including 13 straight away from Camden Yards.

For weeks, Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie has been on a lighthearted mission to identify the organization's "nuggets," the term manager Buck Showalter used in his introductory news conference to designate the players the club can build around. His expanding list has never included his own name. Showalter might beg to differ. In a matchup of two starters who have been dominant since the All-Star break, Guthrie out-dueled the Detroit Tigers' Max Scherzer, pitching seven scoreless innings in the Orioles' series-clinching 5-3 victory in front of an announced 28,139 at Comerica Park.

The Orioles hope to rebound from last night's tough 5-3 loss to the Tigers here at Comerica Park. The O's will send Zach Britton to the mound for a spot start. Britton has struggled in five starts, allowing at least four earned runs in four of them. There's still a lot of buzz about Mark Reynolds' comments about the umpiring in Friday's game. Reynolds said he expects to be fined and retreated from one of his statements. In other news... ** The Orioles optioned Joe Mahoney to Triple-A Norfolk in order to Britton.

Note to Brian Matusz and T.J. McFarland: It's not personal. The Orioles released their roster for the American League Division Series on Thursday morning and a couple of the team's left-handed mainstays are going to spend the next several days in a cheerleading role. That's not because of anything they did or didn't do during the regular season. It's because the Detroit Tigers are such a heavily right-handed-hitting team that there won't be very many opportunities for manager Buck Showalter to match up using his lefties in the middle and late innings.

DETROIT -   Bud Norris had to wait longer than last year to make his first of the regular season, but now that it is here, he couldn't be more psyched. "It's a little different, but we have such a good five-man rotation that as long as I get the ball every fifth day and help the team win, I'm OK with when I pitch," said Norris, who starts Saturday at Comerica Park against the Detroit Tigers in his 2014 debut. "I'm just champing at the bit to help this team. " Norris was the Opening Day starter for the Houston Astros in 2013.

DETROIT -- In this week's battle between the two leading home run hitters in the majors, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis got the best of Tigers slugger and reigning Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera. Davis outhomered Cabrera 3-1 in the Orioles' three-game series in Detrot and, more importantly, the Orioles took two of three from the Tigers at Comerica Park, where the Tigers entered the week with a 22-10 record at home. Their .688 winning percentage here was the best home mark in the majors.

DETROIT - Inside a silent visiting clubhouse at Comerica Park, Orioles right-hander Jake Arrieta sat and stared blankly at his locker until he was summoned into manager Buck Showalter's office. Following the Orioles' 5-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Monday, Arrieta's return to the starting rotation lasted just one night. Selected to fill a void created when right-hander Jason Hammel couldn't make his scheduled start Monday because he was still weak from a stomach virus, Arrieta had an opportunity to jump back into the Orioles' rotation.

Rested Tigers in 5 Peter Schmuck Baltimore Sun The Giants certainly have shown tremendous resilience, fending off a Cardinals team that seemed born to be the wild-card world champion, but that seven-game NLCS is going to cost them in the World Series. The Tigers are well-rested and have their starting rotation lined up just right to get the jump on the Giants, even though the Fall Classic will begin in San Francisco. The home-field disadvantage probably is not going to bother Justin Verlander, who should be very fresh pitching on more than a week's rest.

After one inning of baseball at Comerica Park on Sunday afternoon, the Orioles were in a five-run hole against the Detroit Tigers. But for these Orioles, it was business as usual, not an insurmountable deficit. In the bullpen, the relievers were still talking about who was going to pitch the late innings with the game on the line. In the dugout, the hitters were calm, readying themselves to play a part in chipping away at the Detroit lead. “It [was], 'OK, here's what we've got in front of us,'” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said afterward.
