People have been able to go to the zoo in Aschersleben, Germany, to catch a glimpse of these two, playful cuties. They're on view for one hour every day. The cubs don't have names yet. They were born on Oct. 28.

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.

The Detroit Tigers did what most Baltimore baseball fans wished for - they utterly dismantled the Evil Empire, the New York Yankees. Congratulations to the city of Detroit and the Tigers organization for a job well done. I do believe that our Baltimore baseball team deserves a small thank-you in return. The Orioles did not win their ALDS playoffs versus the New Yorkers, but they were prepping the Yankees for their demise by playing hard-fought games that sent the Yankees into their series with the Tigers an exhausted team.

DETROIT -- As left-handed reliever Andrew Miller spoke to the media in the clubhouse hallway Sunday night after the Orioles' American League Division Series clincher in Detroit, he was interrupted by a bellow. "You did it, Andrew," said the excited voice. "You did it. " Miller smiled and shook hands with the giddy man to his right: Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette, who acquired Miller in a July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline deal with the Boston Red Sox. Whether you're an Orioles fan or you just happen to run the organization, it's hard not to be pumped about what Miller has done in his two-plus months in Baltimore.

To find the catalyst for Towson's second-half dominance against Loyola's women's lacrosse team Saturday, you had to look far from the Tigers' attack. Goalie Mary Teeters made several critical plays through the middle of the second half to keep the No. 17 Tigers rolling to a 14-10 victory over No. 9 Loyola at Diane Geppi-Aikens Field. After trailing by three goals late in the first half, Towson (2-0) emerged from the break with free-position goals by Nikki Marcinik and Jess Dunn to take a 9-8 lead.

Like Rudolf Nureyev , the Tigers have turned on a dime. They appeared to be downsizing less than two years ago when they traded Curtis Granderson and Edwin Jackson in moves that seemed to show owner Mike Ilitch's concern over a bloated payroll. But that viewpoint passed before the 2010 season started, with free agent Johnny Damon added from the flexibility created by that provocative three-team trade. General manager Dave Dombrowski said the Tigers were only regrouping.

DETROIT -- Orioles left-hander Zach Britton threw his best outing of the season Saturday night against a trecherous Tigers lineup, but after his seven shutout innings, he noted he was only as good as the defense behind him. Britton's sinker was working Saturday night, which allowed him to get three key double play balls, including two in his first five outs of the game. Another double play ball - Delmon Young's grounder up the middle that hopped over Britton but was gloved by shortstopJ.J.

It was another routine sight at Camden Yards on Sunday as first baseman Chris Davis watched another home run fly into the seats. The home run, which was the Orioles' first run of the game against Detroit starter Rick Porcello, jumpstarted another comeback in the Orioles' 4-2 win. “He had pretty much been dominating us the whole game,” Davis said. “He threw me some good pitches to hit earlier in the game, and I wasn't able to get to them, and I just thought I'd be a little more aggressive that at-bat.

Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz overcame a rocky start in the first inning against the Tigers Friday afternoon at Ed Smith Stadium, but settled in for another steady spring start. Matusz yielded hits to the first four batters he faced and gave up three runs in the first inning, but allowed just one base hit after that. "(I) just came out of the gates amped up with a lot of energy," Matusz said. "The first inning, it killed me not getting ahead in the count, gave up some two-strike hits.

Detroit beat the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday to win the three-game series. The Tigers have won nine of their past 12 games since they were swept by the Minnesota Twins in the middle of the month. A major reason has been the performance of their pitching staff, which entered play Wednesday with a 3.88 ERA. Ace right-hander Justin Verlander, whom the Orioles will see Saturday, has won his past five decisions and given up one earned run or fewer in four of them. Detroit first baseman Miguel Cabrera leads the American League with a .374 batting average to go along with 10 home runs.

DETROIT -- We're back at the bar -- actually we are in Detroit, but in mindset, we are in a bar -- and it's time to keep this ALDS prediction thing going. I had the Orioles losing Friday, whereas my colleagues, Eduardo A. Encina and Peter Schmuck, correctly predicted the Orioles would beat the Detroit Tigers. Now the Orioles need just one more win to advance to the American League Championship Series. Schmuck says it will happen Sunday. Encina and I aren't so sure -- we both think the Orioles will advance, but not yet. Schmuck has the Orioles winning, 7-3. Encina has the Tigers, 6-3. I'm a little more optimistic, Tigers, 5-3. I just think the Tigers get at least one in this series.

Pregame introductions: As the Orioles are introduced before Game 3, former Tigers outfielder Delmon Young does not get a friendly reception. And it's difficult to tell whether Tigers fans are booing Nelson Cruz because it sounds the same as when Orioles fans cheer him. National anthem: The Star-Spangled Banner is performed nicely by local a capella group, Vision Male Vocal Ensemble. Orioles fans make their presence known at the appropriate moment. Pregame ceremony: Former Detroit infielder Placido Polanco throws out the ceremonial first pitch, and the Tigers run a cool video tribute to the great stars of their storied history.

Baltimore Sun reporters, columnists and editors share their immediate reaction to Game 3 of the American League Division Series between the Orioles and the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park. Eduardo A. Encina, reporter: The Orioles made it exciting to the end. They're now among the final four teams in baseball. On to the AL Championship Series. They beat the Tigers' three-headed Cy Young winner monster. And in Game 3, the Tigers' murderer's row of Torii Hunter, Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and J.D. Martinez were 2-for-15.

DETROIT -- The Orioles struck first in Game 3 of the American League Division Series -- and they did it in a familiar fashion. Designated hitter Nelson Cruz went deep in October. He has done that a bit. In the sixth inning, Cruz planted an 84-mph changeup from Tigers left-hander David Price just over the wall next to the foul pole in right field for a two-run homer to break a scoreless tie. A frustrated Tigers fan caught the ball and then placed it on the edge of the wall.

DETROIT -- Buck Showalter has played postseason chess several times before, and like most participants as confident as he is, he has lost more times than not. But in the Orioles' triumphant American League Division Series sweep of the Detroit Tigers, the manager pulled all the right strings. Before the Orioles' series-clinching Game 3 win over the Tigers on Sunday afternoon, he switched the rotation, tabbing right-hander Bud Norris to start. And down to the final two outs, he veered from the unconventional, putting the winning run on base in the bottom of the ninth with an intentional walk before allowing closer Zach Britton to finish a three-game sweep of the Tigers.

DETROIT -- The Orioles sprayed beer and champagne at each other for the second time this season, but it was almost like they were going through the motions after Sunday's heart-stopping victory over the Detroit Tigers propelled them into the American League Championship Series. Their division title celebration was more intense because it was the culmination of a terrific regular season. This time, there was the sense in the visitors' clubhouse at Comerica Park that the postseason had only just begun.

Towson junior attacker Andi Raymond didn't have much to say after her team's 11-6 victory over UMBC Wednesday at Johnny Unitas Stadium. As her teammates and coaches talked about her squad's season-opening win, Raymond sat quietly at the end of the podium. She did her talking on the field. Despite missing all of last season to injury, Raymond came out firing on all cylinders, leading her team with four goals and an assist during the victory. Ashleigh Rohrback , the co-Colonial Athletic Association player of the year, added two goals and three assists for the Tigers.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Tigers outfielder Tony Plagman drove in three runs, including a two-run triple in the ninth inning off Orioles reliever Jim Johnson to hand the Orioles a 6-4 loss Friday afternoon at Ed Smith Stadium. Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz, a favorite to win the team's No. 5 rotation spot, allowed three first-inning runs but yielded just one hit over the next four innings. "(I was) able to go out and come back after a tough first and still be able to go deep in the game and keep my team in it," Matusz said.

Think for a second about postseason heroes in Orioles history. Once you move past the Brooks Robinsons, Frank Robinsons, and Rick Dempseys of franchise lore, there's another pantheon reserved for guys who will never end up in the club's Hall of Fame, but provided a moment of excellence in October so crucial, so memorable that they should never ever have to buy a beer in town again. Move over Moe Drabowsky, Tito Landrum and Jeff Reboulet. Delmon Young has just joined your ranks.
