Based on the way the first five battles between the Orioles and Los Angeles Angels had played out, there was little question the season-series finale was going to possess its share of drama. So how about a scoreless tie that stretched into the 13th inning before the Angels finally cracked the Orioles' stubborn bullpen and avoided a sweep? Throw in a potential no-hitter that was thwarted by injury and you had just another ho-hum affair between two evenly matched clubs that could end up clashing again in the postseason.

If you're an Orioles fan and you're concerned about the fact that the two wild-card teams have made it to the League Championship Series round of the postseason, there's no reason to fret about it. I've always believed that the wild-card teams had a bit of an emotional advantage entering the playoffs, because they generally have to grind right to the final weekend of the season before punching their ticket to the playoffs. It seems logical and it has held true over the course of the wild-card era. However, it's going to matter less in the LCS round because everybody has been playing tough, tight games through the first two playoff rounds.

When Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman walked off the mound after the fourth inning Wednesday, moments after third baseman Manny Machado turned in another stunning defensive gem, the rookie said he wasn't dreaming of his potential moment in history. Gausman just wanted to pitch as long as he could and get his team the win - something he did in the Orioles' 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels at Camden Yards. Sure, Gausman had retired 12 straight hitters to begin what was just the 15th start of his major league career and, sure, Machado and right fielder Nick Markakis had already delivered highlight-reel defensive plays that are often made in no-hitters or perfect games.

Closer Zach Britton will return to the Orioles on Thursday as a new dad. Britton and his wife Courtney became parents to a baby boy named Zander Lee Britton, who was born late Tuesday night in Burbank, Calif. Both baby and mother are resting and doing well. Britton is expected to rejoin the Orioles in time to attend Thursday's workout at Camden Yards before Friday's Game 1 of the American League Championship Series. The Brittons initially received a due date of Oct. 14 and Britton was determined he wasn't going to miss the birth of his first child.

Nick Adenhart never played for the Orioles, but five years after the Maryland native's untimely death at age 22, he still has a lasting impact inside the Orioles' clubhouse. Orioles right-handed pitchers Darren O'Day and Miguel Gonzalez, two undrafted free agents who have both developed into successful major leaguers since Adenhart's death, played with the Los Angeles Angels' top pitching prospect in that organization's minor league system. Both cherish their brief friendships with Adenhart that were forged through their time in the minor leagues.

Anaheim, Calif. -- The Orioles walked a dangerous line all night, leaving 14 runners on, including eight in scoring position. They finally paid for it in the 10th inning when Adam Kennedy's three-run homer off Julio Manon sent the Orioles to a 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels last night before 43,658 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Orioles@Angels Today, 3:35 p.m., Ch. 54, 1090 AM Starters: Orioles' Daniel Cabrera (7-9, 4.74) vs. Angels' Ervin Santana (13-7, 4.50)

The sense I'm getting is that Los Angeles Angels owner Arte Moreno will be in the hunt to sign free agent Mark Teixeira, but only to a point. Moreno paid just $180 million to buy his team from Disney five years ago, so it's hard to imagine him agreeing to spend a similar amount to sign one player. If the Angels aren't willing to go the distance, there still will be plenty of interested teams to drive the price through the roof. The Orioles probably will be among them, but there has been little indication Peter Angelos would be willing spend up to $20 million per year for a single player.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It's possible that the Kansas City Royals will go into the American League Championship Series against the Orioles with the same 25-man roster, including 11 pitchers, they used to sweep the Los Angeles Angels in the Division Series. And it appears likely that Kansas City rookie right-hander Yordano Ventura will be the Game 2 starter Saturday after right-hander James Shields pitches in Game 1. “We're pretty set with Ventura in the second game,” Royals manager Ned Yost said.

KANSAS CITY -- No surprise here. James Shields is expected to start the first game of the American League Championship Series for the Kansas City Royals against the Orioles on Friday at Camden Yards. “Friday is Shields' fifth day,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “I imagine he'll be our starter. I'm almost certain Shields will start Game 1.” The Royals' three-game sweep of the Los Angeles Angels in an American League Division Series, completed with Sunday's 8-3 victory at Kauffman Stadium, has allowed Yost the luxury of setting up his pitching order as he sees fit.

Game 4 of the ALDS would start at either 12:07 p.m. or 1:37 p.m., if the ALDS series between the Kansas City Royals and Los Angeles Angels has concluded. Bud Norris would likely start that game. Norris has struggled in day games, going 11-21 with a 4.72 ERA over his career, compared to 42-36 with a 4.07 ERA at night. This season, Norris is 3-4 with a 5.57 ERA in eight day starts and 12-4 with a 2.99 ERA in 20 night starts. If necessary, Game 5 will be played on Wednesday at Camden Yards at 5:37 p.m., or 8:37 p.m. if the other ALDS series has been completed.

I'm sure I'm alone in having watched all that I could of Game 1 between the Kansas City Royals and the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night, given the quick turnaround between Orioles games and the singular focus on the home team here in Baltimore. Watching the painfully slow extra-inning affair in Anaheim, Calif., only reinforced a thought I had during Kansas City's wild-card win over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday night, and baseball Twitter reinforced that reinforcement for me. What's up with Cal Ripken Jr.?

NEW YORK - It is scheduled to rain here throughout the day, and there's a 70 percent chance of rain when Thursday night's series finale against the New York Yankees is supposed to begin. That's throwing the locals into a frenzy because of the possibility that Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's final home game could be rained out. If the game cannot be played Thursday, it likely wouldn't be made up if it's a meaningless game in the standings. The Orioles are still chasing the American League's best record - and home-field advantage throughout the postseason - but they're running out of games to catch up with the Los Angeles Angels.

NEW YORK - With the Orioles preparing for the postseason, closer Zach Britton is anxiously anticipating the birth of his first child, and his baby boy's arrival could come in the middle of the club's playoff run. Britton's wife, Courtney, initially was expected to give birth in late-October, but the due date was pushed up to Oct. 14, when the Orioles could be in the midst of the American League Championship Series. So the Brittons sat down with their doctor and looked at the playoff schedule.

Ramon Hernandez stood stock still and flipped his bat aside, confident that he had just become the Orioles' second ninth-inning hero in as many nights. But as the ball arced toward the left-field wall, manager Sam Perlozzo had his doubts. Last night's back-and-forth affair with the Los Angeles Angels had been so crazy that he wouldn't have been shocked if Hernandez's blast had fallen short.

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.

The Orioles' regular-season home finale Sunday afternoon ended with a whimper, a 3-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox. But they'll be back. For just the second time in Camden Yards' 23-season history, the Orioles ended their home schedule knowing for sure that they would return for a playoff game. Only in 1997 - the other time they were American League East division champions while playing at Camden Yards - did they know that the last regularly scheduled game in Baltimore wasn't their final one for the year.
