When the Detroit Tigers last came to Baltimore in May, right fielder Torii Hunter left firmly ensconced as the chief villain in road grays. Miguel Cabrera, the two-time reigning American League MVP, took up that mantel during the ALDS. Cabrera, the reigning two-time American League Most Valuable Player, had a hand in nearly every play - good and bad - on either team's ledger Friday, as his Tigers fell 7-6 with another eighth-inning bullpen implosion. The 2012 Triple Crown winner, who homered in the eighth inning of Game 1 and took his time rounding the bases, opened the Tigers' attack with a two-out single in the first inning Friday.

Comebacks and eighth innings aside, one of the most pleasing sights in the first two games of the American League Division Series has to be that the Orioles' stellar defense is back. Orioles manager Buck Showalter makes it clear that it's your glove that moves you up through the minor league system and it's defense that keeps you in the majors. He uses Manny Machado, Jonathan Schoop and Ryan Flaherty as examples that the Orioles are willing to let players work through their offensive struggles as long as they are sound defensively.

The American League Most Valuable Player award will be announced tonight at 6 p.m. on MLB Network, and one person in the Orioles organization knows two of the finalists -- Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera and Orioles first baseman Chris Davis -- very well. Few coaches have worked with both sluggers as closely as Orioles hitting coach Jim Presley, who was Cabrera's hitting coach with the Florida Marlins in 2006 and 2007 before he was dealt to the Tigers. Presley, who completed his third season as Orioles hitting coach in 2013, has also worked with Davis and has played an instrumental role in Davis blossoming into one of the game's top power hitters this season.

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis' eye-popping offensive numbers continue to gain him national recognition through the first two months of the season. Davis won his second American League Player of the Week award Monday for the week ending Sunday. He also won the same award for the opening week of the regular season. In seven games last week, Davis led the major leagues with a .481 batting average (13-for-27) and led the AL in hits (13), total bases (26), slugging percentage (.963)

As the Florida Marlins celebrated an improbable victory, several Orioles lingered in the home dugout, seated on the bench with their eyes fixated on the field as if they were still trying to comprehend what had just happened. It indeed, was hard to fathom. The Orioles watched closer Chris Ray, perfect in save opportunities at this point of the season, give up two two-out home runs to pinch hitters and cough up a four-run ninth-inning lead. They then witnessed Marlins slugger Miguel Cabrera smack Todd Williams' letter-high lob, the first pitch of what was supposed to be an intentional walk, into center field for a go-ahead RBI single in the 10th inning.

Cabrera lifting Tigers Phil Rogers Chicago Tribune I know Mike Trout has done historic things, but unfortunately his Angels team is also history, eliminated from the wild-card race on Monday, the same day that Miguel Cabrera's Tigers clinched the AL Central title. That's a difference-maker to me in the MVP vote. I will take Cabrera over Trout because one will play in the postseason and the other will not. Trout was a better player this year, and as such is a strong candidate for the Hank Aaron Award, but the Tigers wouldn't have sniffed October without Cabrera and now they have a chance to win the World Series.

Pujols in short term Dave van Dyck Chicago Tribune Are we talking long- or short-term? For the next three years, Pujols will mean more to the Angels than Fielder will to the Tigers. After that, the roles reverse, only because of Pujols' age (no matter which age you believe). What makes Pujols so valuable are the things he does past the obvious. Yes, he hits home runs at key moments, hits for average and plays a decent first base (better than Fielder)

The stars are aligned Lance Pugmire Los Angeles Times Yes. While it appeared uncertain, the stars appear to be aligning for the Tigers slugger. Cabrera has seven games to hold on to his batting-average lead over the Angels' Mike Trout and his RBI advantage over the Rangers' Josh Hamilton. It'll come down to home runs, and Hamilton's case improved when he returned this week from a five-game absence after being diagnosed with a cornea-drying condition brought on by the slugger's heavy use of caffeine.

Last year's American League Most Valuable Player race was one of the most contested in recent years, stoking a debate between two distinct schools of thought about the basis of baseball's highest individual award. This season, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis entered contention for the honor with eye-popping power and run-production numbers that were unparalled this year. But when the 2013 AL MVP was announced Thursday night, Davis' bid to become the first Orioles player to win the award in 22 years fell short to last year's top two candidates.

Despite his gaudy run-production numbers this past season, first baseman Chris Davis will be an underdog to become the first Orioles player to win the American League Most Valuable Player Award in more than two decades. Davis was named one of three finalists for the award Tuesday night, along with Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout. The Orioles slugger led the major leagues with 53 home runs, 138 RBIs and 370 total bases, and he was a Gold Glove finalist at first base.

There are a number of statistical undertones as Chris Davis continues one of the greatest offensive seasons in Orioles history . Davis has a strong chance of overtaking Brady Anderson's single-season franchise home run record (50 in 1996), and he can also play a role in preventing Detroit's Miguel Cabrera from becoming the first player in baseball history to win Triple Crowns in two straight seasons. With that in mind, we'll provide a periodic update on Orioles Insider telling you everything you need to know about Davis' home run chase.

Not as sharp Failing to find the command that enabled him to breeze through his first two starts, Daniel Cabrera was touched for four earned runs, including a mammoth three-run, third-inning home run by Miguel Cabrera, in four innings of the Orioles' 4-1 loss to the Florida Marlins yesterday at Roger Dean Stadium. In his two previous spring starts, Cabrera had given up just two hits and no walks spanning five innings. Yesterday, he walked three and needed 59 pitches. "Nobody can be perfect," he said.

BOSTON -- In the sixth inning of Wednesday night's 4-3 loss to the Boston Red Sox, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 47th homer of the season, breaking a tie for third on the franchise's all-time single season list with Jim Gentile, who hit 46 in 1961. He now trails only Brady Anderson (50 in 1996) and Frank Robinson (49 in 1966). Thursday, Davis said the milestones are something he'll consider when the season is over. “It's tough to look at that right now. We lost a big game [Wednesday]
