DETROIT - In the aftermath of the Orioles' American League Division Series win over the Detroit Tigers, we wanted to share some quotes that may not have made it into print. The Orioles had plenty to say. Here are some of the team's key figures talking about Sunday's series-clinching win:  Buck Showalter on whether he could have predicted Nelson Cruz's impact: “Heavens, no.  We just felt like it was a good fit where he was, not necessarily in his career, but his mindset going into the season.  I think Nelson, not a vindictiveness, he knows things were self-inflicted.  He really wanted to establish himself, reestablish himself, and we thought we could provide a real good opportunity for him, and the sky might be the limit.  But we weren't that smart.

DETROIT - On Friday, the Orioles had to deal with a 1 a.m. flight, fewer than five hours of sleep, and a day game played in a brittle cold and persistent rain against a Detroit Tigers lineup that featured baseball's best hitter, Miguel Cabrera. The outcome was about as ugly as the Orioles' schedule, and about as predictable as a Camden Yards crowd's yelling “O” during the national anthem. The Tigers pounded the Orioles, 10-4, at Comerica Park in a game twice delayed by rain. “What else would you expect?

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.

A day after the Detroit Tigers bullpen imploded in Game 1, the same cast of relievers was again responsible for an eighth-inning meltdown that sent the Orioles on the road with a 7-6 win and a 2-0 lead in the American League Division Series. "It's certainly a little tough to swallow," Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. "When you have a three-run lead going into the last couple of innings, you feel like you should get the job done. But we didn't. " The Tigers bullpen returns to Comerica Park after a disastrous two-day stretch in which it allowed 11 runs (10 earned)

Broadcasting legend Ernie Harwell, voice of the Orioles for the first six years after the St. Louis Browns' franchise arrived in Baltimore in 1954 and a man whose voice has been compared to a "dripping Georgia peach cobbler," is back on the air.After his Orioles' stint, Harwell was the radio voice of the Detroit Tigers from 1960 until 1993, when then team president Bo Schembechler "retired" him. That meant his voice was pretty much limited to the broadcasters' wing...

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles added another player to their infield mix Monday, acquiring switch-hitting local product Steve Lombardozzi Jr. in a trade that sent veteran infielder Alex Gonzalez to the Detroit Tigers. Lombardozzi, 25, who is from Fulton in Howard County and graduated from Atholton High School in Columbia, immediately becomes an option at second and third base while the Orioles fill the temporary hole created by the club's decision to place third baseman Manny Machado on the 15-day disabled list to start the season.

A five-run offensive explosion in the ninth inning Saturday that made a nail-biter out of a blowout didn't mask the most pertinent question surrounding the 2014 Orioles: Will the starting pitching do enough to keep them in contention throughout the summer months? Five games in - through one turn of the rotation - the answer isn't promising. “We are better than we've shown. We know what kind of five-man staff we have and we are going to build off each other and go,” said Orioles right-hander Bud Norris.

DETROIT -- We're back at the bar -- actually we are in Detroit, but in mindset, we are in a bar -- and it's time to keep this ALDS prediction thing going. I had the Orioles losing Friday, whereas my colleagues, Eduardo A. Encina and Peter Schmuck, correctly predicted the Orioles would beat the Detroit Tigers. Now the Orioles need just one more win to advance to the American League Championship Series. Schmuck says it will happen Sunday. Encina and I aren't so sure -- we both think the Orioles will advance, but not yet. Schmuck has the Orioles winning, 7-3. Encina has the Tigers, 6-3. I'm a little more optimistic, Tigers, 5-3. I just think the Tigers get at least one in this series.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their immediate reaction to Game 3 of the American League Division Series between the Orioles and the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park. Eduardo A. Encina, reporter: The Orioles made it exciting to the end. They're now among the final four teams in baseball. On to the AL Championship Series. They beat the Tigers' three-headed Cy Young winner monster. And in Game 3, the Tigers' murderer's row of Torii Hunter, Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez were 2-for-15.

DETROIT -- Buck Showalter has played postseason chess several times before, and like most participants as confident as he is, he has lost more times than not. But in the Orioles' triumphant American League Division Series sweep of the Detroit Tigers, the manager pulled all the right strings. Before the Orioles' series-clinching Game 3 win over the Tigers on Sunday afternoon, he switched the rotation, tabbing right-hander Bud Norris to start. And down to the final two outs, he veered from the unconventional, putting the winning run on base in the bottom of the ninth with an intentional walk before allowing closer Zach Britton to finish a three-game sweep of the Tigers.

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 -- Buck Showalter never wants to get pigeonholed into making a hasty decision. The Orioles manager always likes to digest all the information available to him - talk to his coaches, and sometimes his players - before making a choice. And because intangibles can change, so can his mind. With his team up two games to none on the Detroit Tigers in the best-of-five American League Division Series, Showalter decided to alter his rotation on Saturday's day off, tabbing right-hander Bud Norris to start Sunday's Game 3 in a possible clinching situation.

Think for a second about postseason heroes in Orioles history. Once you move past the Brooks Robinsons, Frank Robinsons, and Rick Dempseys of franchise lore, there's another pantheon reserved for guys who will never end up in the club's Hall of Fame, but provided a moment of excellence in October so crucial, so memorable that they should never ever have to buy a beer in town again. Move over Moe Drabowsky, Tito Landrum and Jeff Reboulet. Delmon Young has just joined your ranks.

Dave Schaub had staked quite a lot on the Orioles as they attempted to rally against the Detroit Tigers in Friday's Game 2 of the American League Division Series. The sign the Middle River resident hoisted above his head said it all: "If the O's Win, We're Getting Married!" So it was just a little sweeter for him when Delmon Young's three-run double fell in to put the Orioles ahead in the eighth inning and Zach Britton closed out the 7-6 victory, which put the Tigers down 2-0 with the series headed to Detroit.
