Detroit Tigers Circle Logo
The Detroit Tigers host the Baltimore Orioles in a must-win American League Divisional Series game this afternoon. Detroit trails the best-of-five series two games to none, after falling to the Orioles 7-6 Friday. David Price will start for Detroit, and Bud Norris will counter for Baltimore. The game starts at 3:30. We will join it in progress as soon as the Lions’ game ends on AM 1400 and FM 99.3 WCCY.

We won’t know until game time whether outfielder Rajai Davis will be able to play. Davis is battling a sprained pelvic ligament. He had to leave Friday’s game in the fourth inning, when it tightened up as he ran the bases.

In yesterday’s National League Divisional Series, Brandon Belt’s homer in the 18th inning lifted the Giants to a 2-1 victory over the Nationals. At six hours and 23 minutes, it was the longest playoff game in Major League Baseball history. The Nationals lead the series two games to none. Matt Kemp’s homer in the eighth was the difference, as the Dodgers edged the Cardinals 3-2. That series is tied at one win per team.
