Max Scherzer and the Detroit Tigers are in a 1-0 hole to the Orioles in the American League Division Series partly because the 2013 Cy Young Award winner spent the first two innings trying to avoid one on the mound. Scherzer and Orioles starter Chris Tillman began their windups in a similar spot early in the game, the Tigers starter said, creating a hole in the dirt near the pitching rubber. Scherzer compensated by taking a wider step off the rubber to start his motion, which threw his deliver out of whack and allowed the Orioles to pick up five of the seven hits they got off Scherzer - and three crucial early runs - before he adjusted.

DETROIT -- The eighth inning came Sunday without any participation from the Tigers' bullpen - much to the delight of an emotionally brittle baseball town still enraged at the abomination in Baltimore. David Price did his job in Game 3, keeping manager Brad Ausmus from walking out of the dugout and motioning to the bullpen. But momentarily filling one hole exposed another. That's how history will critique the 2014 Tigers. Opportunity wasted. The Tigers' season ended in a 2-1 whimper.

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)

When the Orioles signed Nelson Cruz to a club-friendly one-year, $8 million deal in February, executive vice president Dan Duquette was quick to point out Cruz's postseason accomplishments. And while the Orioles have reaped a huge payoff from their investment in Cruz - he led the majors with 40 homers and at times, carried the club on his broad shoulders - the 34-year-old slugger brings huge playoff credentials into the Orioles' American League Division Series matchup against the Detroit Tigers.

The field for this fall's playoffs might be far different if Josh Byrnes, then the Diamondbacks general manager, hadn't approached the Yankees' Brian Cashman with an idea shortly before Thanksgiving in 2009. What transpired next may have contributed to Byrnes' firing eight months later. And it no doubt cost Cashman some sleepless nights the next summer. But the three-team, seven-player trade consummated a month later with the Tigers changed the fortunes of two franchises and set up outfielder Curtis Granderson for one of the greatest seasons in the Yankees' long and storied history.

The Orioles came into the American League Division Series knowing they couldn't match the Detroit Tigers ace for ace. No single Oriole could comfortably compare resumes with Detroit's Game 1 starter, Max Scherzer, the 2013 AL Cy Young Award winner. But as they have all season, the Orioles found a less traditional way to outduel flashier talent. Two first-time postseason performers, starter Chris Tillman and reliever Andrew Miller, combined to produce a better line than Scherzer before the Orioles blew the game open against the Tigers bullpen and won, 12-3.

It wasn't magic. It was just Thursday. OK, it was a Thursday in October, so there already was something special about it, but the Orioles' 12-3 victory in Game 1 of their division series against the Detroit Tigers was just a postseason compilation of all the ways this team has found to win over the course of this amazing and uplifting season. Nelson Cruz, who was signed in February to be their designated playoff hero, launched a two-run home run in the first inning to find his name mentioned in the same sentence with some guy named Babe Ruth, Chris Tillman ground out five tough innings and the bullpen did what it has been doing with amazing regularity since Day One. Why should anyone be surprised by that?

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.

NEW YORK -- Chris Davis has been named the American League's cleanup hitter for Tuesday night's All-Star Game, manager Jim Leyland announced. The Orioles first baseman, starting in his first All-Star appearace, leads the majors with 37 homers. He typically bats fifth for the Orioles. In Tuesday's game at Citi Field, Davis will bat behind the Angels' Mike Trout, the Yankees' Robinson Cano and the Tigers' Miguel Cabrera. Leyland, the manager of the reigning AL champion Tigers, was asked if it was tough to decide on his batting order with all the sluggers voted into his lineup.
