Division series open thread Day 4, October 5

The American League rises again with two afternoon games.

First, at 12:30 PM, the Baltimore Orioles begin Game 3 at Comerica Park with a 2-0 lead over the Detroit Tigers. Bud Norris takes the mound for the Orioles against Detroit's David Price. That game will be on TBS.

At 4:30 PM, the Los Angeles Angels will need a victory in Kansas City, or they head home as they face the Royals in what is the first Division Series game at Kauffman Stadium since 1981, when the "division" was the 1981 strike that divided the season into two half-champions to play for the division championship. Kauffman Stadium was known as Royals Stadium back then. C.J. Wilson takes on James Shields. That game will also be on TBS, unless the Orioles-Tigers game goes long, in which case it will start on TNT.
