NEW YORK -- Over the past two decades, there probably has been no player who has caused the Orioles more heartbreak than Derek Jeter. And in his final game at Yankee Stadium, he found a way to beat them one last time. This wasn't the infamous "Jeffrey Maier home run" in the 1996 American League Championship Series or those 14 straight losing seasons in which Jeter and the New York Yankees used the Orioles as a division punching bag. Times have changed. When the teams took the field for Jeter's final game wearing pinstripes at Yankee Stadium on Thursday night, it was the newly-crowned AL East champion Orioles -- not the Yankees -- who were playing with something at stake.

The start times for the Orioles' first two American League Division Series games at Camden Yards were announced Monday evening, contingent on the outcomes of both wild-card games. The Orioles and the Detroit Tigers will open the postseason with the early game Thursday. If the Kansas City Royals win Tuesday's American League wild-card game, the game will start at 5:37 p.m. And the start will be pushed back 30 minutes to 6:07 p.m. if the Oakland Athletics win the wild-card game. The start of Game 2, which will be Friday, depends on the outcome of the National League wild-card game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the San Francisco Giants.

The Orioles haven't yet clinched a playoff spot or figured out their seeding for the postseason, but assuming they are playing in October, their first game will be Oct. 2 on TBS. Major League Baseball announced its postseason schedule today, and the playoffs will kick off -- assuming there are no ties -- with the American League wild-card game Sept. 30, with the National League wild-card game the next day, Oct. 1. If the current standings hold, the Orioles will get the No. 2 seed in the AL and will host the first two Division Series games at Camden Yards on Oct. 2 and Oct. 3. They'd then travel for games three and four (if necessary)

Orioles left-hander Zach Britton won't lie about it. Yes, in the past year, he considered what it would be like to wear a different uniform, to get a second chance elsewhere. Heading into last fall, Britton had struggled through consecutive rocky seasons in which a shoulder injury, lack of command and cracking confidence had thrust him into a career crossroads. Once considered a future ace, Britton weathered a brutal final month last season, pitching poorly in a spot start against the Cleveland Indians before being jettisoned to instructional league while his teammates were fighting in a pennant race.

Jennifer Regester knew she was coming no matter what. Shortly after the Orioles clinched a spot in the American League Division Series, she bought plane tickets to Baltimore for her and her 18-year-old daughter, Taylor Twofeathers - from their home in Bozeman, Mont. Regester made the $1,700 splurge without any guarantee she'd be able to purchase playoff seats from her favorite baseball club. "Is that totally crazy?" the Baltimore County native asked. Maybe, but Regester was hardly alone in the rush to snap up tickets for the impending ALDS, which begins Thursday at Camden Yards.

NEW YORK - When the Yankee Stadium crowd began chanting New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's name after his final at-bat Wednesday after a routine groundout - trying to coax the future Hall of Famer out of the dugout - Orioles manager Buck Showalter knew it wasn't happening. It wasn't the right time. “He had a tough at-bat, a ground ball back to the pitcher,” Showalter said, “I told a couple of our guys, 'He ain't coming out of the dugout. Just watch.' That's all you need to know about Derek because it didn't fit in the context of what was [happening]

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.

NEW YORK -- There was some consolation following the Orioles' 5-0 loss to the New York Yankees on Monday night. Following a night in which the Orioles managed just one hit, manager Buck Showalter was told that despite the loss, the club clinched home-field advantage in the American League Division Series with the Detroit Tigers' loss to the Chicago White Sox.

TORONTO - Orioles manager Buck Showalter wants to see his collective group of starters in action today for the team's final regular-season game and last action before Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Thursday. Showalter initially wanted Alexi Casilla to start at third base today. He will play, but he will come in as a reserve. Ryan Flaherty will start at third base. So does that mean Flaherty will be the starting third baseman when the Orioles open the ALDS? Not necessarily.

NEW YORK - Right-hander Chris Tillman will make his postseason debut next week as the Orioles' starting pitcher in Game 1 of the American League Division Series at Camden Yards. It appeared evident that Tillman would start the Oct. 2 playoff opener once Orioles manager Buck Showalter said the pitcher would start Friday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays on one extra day of rest and then do the same going into the postseason. But Showalter officially announced the move before Tuesday's game against the New York Yankees.

TORONTO - The Orioles arrived home from Canada on Sunday night and will get a day off before having workouts Tuesday and Wednesday ahead of Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers on Thursday. Orioles manager Buck Showalter will try to hold Wednesday's workout around the same time as Game 1 to get his players on the same clock. They're likely to be the early game with the other ALDS game being played on the West Coast, but if the Orioles play at 8 p.m. Thursday, the workout likely would be around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Partly cloudy skies and temperatures from the lower 70s to the mid-60s are forecast Thursday for the first October baseball to be played in Baltimore in two years.

The people who yell "O" at sporting events dishonor the flag and the National Anthem. They also make Baltimore people look like real jerks. I figured it out why they say "O" so loud and proud. It's the only word they know in the anthem. I guess they are also not bright enough to realize there is an "O" at the beginning of the anthem. But then they would have to know two words.

When the Orioles clinch their first division title in 17 years, outfielder Delmon Young will be in the middle of another postseason celebration - his sixth in six years with four different teams. “I've been fortunate enough to be on teams where you have good players, good managers, a good front office, good young players that come up and a knack for winning,” said Young, who has batted .288 with seven homers in 77 games with the Orioles through Monday. Heading into this season, the Cleveland Indians' Nick Swisher had the longest playoff streak among active players with six consecutive from 2008 to 2013, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

If the Royals win and the Tigers lose today, the teams will play a Game 163 on Monday to determine the AL Central winner.  Before you ask, we also still don't know the start time for the first two games of the ALDS at Camden Yards.
