Heavy rain forecast through the night in Kansas City prompted Major League Baseball to postpone American League Championship Series Game 3 between the Orioles and Royals in Kansas City. Nearly three-quarters of an inch of rain had fallen there as of 3 p.m. central time, and as much as another half inch of rain is possible through Monday night, according to the  National Weather Service 's Kansas City forecast office. Game 3 is now set for 8 p.m. Tuesday, with Game 4 at 4 p.m. Wednesday and Game 5, if necessary, at 4 p.m. Thursday.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tonight's Orioles game against the Texas Rangers is scheduled to start at 8:40 p.m. (Eastern) after a rain delay. The grounds crew has just removed the tarp from the field. Texas will have a pregame ceremony to induct former catcher Ivan Rodriguez into the Rangers Hall of Fame, which will take approximately 30 minutes. Tonight's game was initially scheduled to begin at 8:15, but thunderstorms pelted the area, forcing the Orioles to cut batting practice short.

We're back at Connolly's, where we're gonna start pricing our rail drinks based on how many points the suddenly, high-powered Ravens offense scores weekly. I'm kidding about that - I'm gouging you people with ridiculous prices, because you can't stay away from the witty banter - and I'm not turning to football yet. The bartending crew - Pete Schmuck is really just a keg lifter, but we try to include him - is all in Kansas City. We're chewing on barbecue and the idea of the Orioles' season ending in Kauffman Stadium.

The Orioles announced tonight's attendance as 17,383 - remember that is tickets sold and not necessarily people in the seats. The actual attendance is obviously lower, but I think there were more people here than I had anticipated -- given the fact that the Super Bowl champion Ravens open up tonight in Denver. I've seen worse crowds at Camden Yards over the years, that's for sure. One more important note about the attendance: The Orioles have officially gone over the 2 million mark now - they are at 2,007,672 for 68 home dates.

Up until the ninth inning, it was a great game, and TBS provided coverage worthy of it. As I said in my review of Friday night's wildcard game, the broadcast team of Ernie Johnson on play by play and Cal Ripken and John Smoltz as analysts is a winner. Johnson's easygoing style creates a solid and steady baseline that allows Ripken and Smoltz to concentrate on taking viewers inside the game. Smoltz was especially sharp Sunday in explaining how C.C. Sabathia managed to keep the Orioles off balance at the plate all night.

In a life dedicated to overcoming -- or, better yet, ignoring -- the obstacles presented by being born without arms or hands, Tom Willis will be adding another milestone tonight. He'll be throwing out the first pitch at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, with his feet. "Who says you need hands to pitch?" Willis asks. "Every little boy who picks up a baseball dreams of some day playing on a professional team in a professional stadium. As a child I shared that same dream. My disability, however, made that dream impossible.

Matt Fortese came 75 miles from Hagerstown to meet Taylor Queen at Camden Yards. She drove more than three hours from Virginia. Their second date was going well, Queen said, until an hour of taunting from two fans boiled over into an altercation that left Fortese fighting for his life. Fortese, a lifelong Yankees fan who wore his team's cap to Wednesday's game, suffered severe head trauma and a skull fracture. He was listed in serious condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center Saturday.

Here comes the windup and what a -- um, change of pitch. OK, now he's ready. Oops, well, he didn't like that signal, either. Now the catcher and the pitcher will have a little talk. The catcher walks slowly back to the plate. Here goes the windup and what a -- throw to the first baseman.Now the catcher will join the pitcher on the mound and he's followed by the first baseman and here comes the manager out '' of the dugout. And it looks like there will be a pitching change. Stay tuned, we'll return after this commercial break.

Kansas City Royals right-hander Jeremy Guthrie will start a postseason game for the first time in his 10-year career when he faces the Orioles, his old team, on Monday night at Kauffman Stadium. What could help Guthrie is the familiarity he has with some of his former teammates in the four starts he has made since being traded three years ago, along with the success he has pitching against two of the Orioles' best hitters, Adam Jones and Nelson Cruz. Jones has just one hit in 12 at-bats against Guthrie in his career, while Cruz is 6-for-24 with one extra-base hit. Calling the opportunity “very serendipitous,” Guthrie said before Game 2 on Saturday that his knowledge in playing with and pitching against several of those he will face in Game 3 could be to his advantage.

One of the things I like about baseball - and there are a lot of things to like, especially when the Orioles reach the American League Championship Series - is the way it marks time. You don't have to be a stats freak to remember the milestones. When your team is alive in October, the year of that happy development registers forever. In the Barry Levinson-directed film adaptation of Bernard Malamud's "The Natural," the fictional slugger Roy Hobbs shatters the glass clock in center field with a line-drive home run. That is to say: Baseball will never be ruled by time.

Camden Yards was still quiet about three hours before the 12:07 p.m. first pitch of Game 2 in the American League Division Series. Groundskeepers raked the dirt along the base paths and a few players stretched in the outfield. The sky lived up to the partly cloudy forecast, with patches of blue occasionally marred by passing gray. The Orioles will attempt to take a 2-0 lead over the Detroit Tigers behind left-hander Wei-Yin Chen on Friday afternoon. But Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said he actually liked the fact his team was facing a quick turnaround from its 12-3 loss in the Thursday evening opener.

With the Kansas City Royals' thrilling, 12-inning victory in the American League wild-card playoff game early this morning, the start time for the Orioles' first game of the divisional playoffs has been set. The O's will play the Detroit Tigers at 5:37 p.m. Thursday at Camden Yards. The game would have started a half hour later had the Oakland A's won the wild-card game. The Orioles will send Chris Tillman to the mound in Game 1 against 2013 Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer.

Chris Tillman shies away from talking about his accomplishments this season because he doesn't want to give the inclination that he's satisfied with the steps he has taken. He had a remarkable second half, continued his emergence as a leader in the Orioles starting rotation and continued to gain the confidence of manager Buck Showalter. Tillman admits he's much more comfortable on the mound than he is talking about himself. And he knows success is fleeting over a long baseball season.

Congratulations to letter writer Roy Valiant for saying what a lot of us think. Our National Anthem should be treated with respect, not just to honor a song, a flag and our country but also to honor all those who have given their lives protecting this country ( "Now that Baltimore has celebrated the National Anthem, perhaps we can stop desecrating it at Orioles games," Sept. 18). It is unbelievable that people can be so callous and show so much disrespect by yelling out "O!" during the playing of the anthem.

Ron Taylor isn't really a singer who performs the national anthem before ball games -- but he played one on TV.That was enough for the Baltimore Orioles, who have enlisted Mr. Taylor to sing the anthem before their game July 1.Mr. Taylor played a gospel singer who sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" on a recent episode of "L.A. Law." His unconventional rendition -- in which he embellished notes, holding some for unusually long periods -- caused him to be blipped. He sued and, with the help of the McKenzie firm, got an out-of-court settlement in his favor.

"The Star-Spangled Banner" is the national anthem of the United States. The lyrics come from "Defense of Fort McHenry," a poem written in 1814 by the 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet Francis Scott Key after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry by British ships of the Royal Navy in the Chesapeake Bay during the Battle of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812. Baltimore should be proud of this heritage and the 200th celebration that has taken place over the last week. The Star-Spangled Banner is the most patriotic song in United States history, and it originated in Baltimore.

The TV audience for Tuesday night's division-clinching victory was almost twice as large as normal for an Orioles game on MASN this season, according to figures provided by the channel. O's games averaged a 5.9 household rating this season, which means 5.9 percent of cable TV homes in the Baltimore market watched the games throughout the season. But Tuesday night the percentage of cable TV homes in the Baltimore market tuned to the game was 11.6 percent. That translates to 127,000 homes and 179,000 viewers.
