The Baltimore Orioles quest toward their first World Series appearance in 31 years starts on Thursday when they open up the American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers at Camden Yards. Baltimore is back in the postseason for the second time in three years thanks to its first American League East crown since 1997 after going 96-66. The win total was the most for an Os team since they accumulated 98 in the year of their last division title. The Os had to overcome a pair of serious injuries along the way, as catcher Matt Wieters was lost for the season in June with an elbow injury, while promising third baseman Manny Machado was again done in by a serious leg injury that required surgery in August. Then as if that wasnt enough last years home run champion Chris Davis was suspended for the use of amphetamines in September. His suspension will keep him out of this series and he likely wont be available to the Os unless they reach the World Series. Still it didnt slow the Orioles down from an offensive standpoint, as they hit a league high 211 dingers, with Nelson Cruz leading the way with an MLB- best 40. Chris Tillman will make his first postseason start for the Orioles in Game One. Tillman was as good as any pitcher down the stretch, going 6-1 in the second half with a 2.33 ERA in 14 starts. Overall he was 13-6 with a 3.34 ERA. Baltimore was 11-3 in his 14 starts after the break and also went 20 starts of having allowed three runs or less. You know what? I think the only difference is the stakes are higher, Tillman said of his preparation. I take every game the same way. Theyre all important. There is not one thats less important than the other. As a player, I think between the lines, thats where were comfortable. So once the game starts and the bell rings, thats where were comfortable as a team and as a unit. Might have extra feelings before the game, be nervous, but if youre not nervous, you need to find another job, really. Tillman is also a perfect 3-0 in six starts versus the Tigers with a 3.58 ERA. Detroit, meanwhile, needed all 162 games before it finally clinched its fourth straight AL Central title with a win on the final day of the season. The four straight playoff appearances are tied for the longest active streak of postseason appearances in the major leagues. While as good of a story it would have been had the postseason-starved Kansas City Royals overtaken Detroit, it would have been a disaster for a Tigers team that was an overwhelming favorite at the start of the year and one that went all-in at the non-waiver trade deadline with the acquisition of left-hander David Price from the Tampa Bay Rays. Regardless, Detroit is trying to get back to the World Series for the second time in three years, as it chases its first title since 1984. Getting the call for the Tigers on Thursday will be reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer, who finished the year tied for the AL lead with 18 wins, while recording a 3.15 ERA and setting career highs in innings (220 1/3) and strikeouts (252). I remember him saying at Spring Training ... to expect him to have a season this year like he did last year just wasnt going to happen, manager Brad Ausmus said. Well, he came pretty darn close. Scherzer was at his best in September, going 3-0 with a 2.48 ERA as the Tigers won all five of his starts, including two important victories over the Royals. He is a four-pitch pitcher, Ausmus said. Hes a No. 1-type pitcher. We certainly feel comfortable sending him to the mound. Scherzer has pitched to a 4.95 ERA in three starts at Camden Yards, but is 3-1 lifetime against the Os with a 3.92 ERA in six starts. These two teams have never met one another in the postseason, but the Tigers were 5-1 against the Os in the regular season.

Mitchell threw for 334 yards as Calgary held on for a thrilling 20-16 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at B.C. Place. The six-foot-two, 196-pound Texan was calm and precise on the field, completing 25-of-34 passes in his first career Grey Cup start. He was named the games outstanding player. At one point, Mitchell threw 10 straight completions, tying him for the third-longest streak in Grey Cup history before a boisterous B.C. Place Stadium gathering of 52,056 — 1,423 short of a sellout. But the West Division champions needed two late defensive stands and some luck to secure the victory. A Delvin Breaux interception of Mitchell put Hamilton at the Calgary 50-yard line. Quarterback Zach Collaros marched the offence to the three-yard line before the Stampeders defence stiffened, resulting in Justin Medlocks 17-yard field goal at 9:25 of the fourth quarter to pull to within 20-13. Hamilton regained possession at its 41-yard line with under four minutes remaining and marched to the Calgary 23. Cory Maces sack stalled the drive and set up Medlocks 37-yard field goal to cut the Stampeders lead to 20-16 with just over two minutes remaining. Brandon Banks brought Ticats supporters to their feet with 35 seconds left when he returned a Rene Paredes punt 90 yards for a TD, but it was nullified by an illegal block penalty. Instead of having the lead, Hamilton took over at its 12-yard line. Calgary earned its third straight win this season over Hamilton, which after a 1-6 start to the season rallied to a 9-9 mark to finish atop the East Division. Paredes had to handle punting duties in the second half after incumbent Rob Maver suffered an abdominal injury after being hammered on a Hamilton punt return. The six-foot, 201-pound Maver was hit from the blindside by Justin Hickman, a six-foot-two, 265-pound defensive lineman, and remained on the field for some time before eventually walking off on his own. Calgary also lost receiver Maurice Price to an ankle injury in the second half. Calgary earned its second Grey Cup win since 08 when John Hufnagel was named head coach/GM. Hamiltons Grey Cup drought continues with their last CFL championship coming in Vancouver in 99 when they beat the Stampeders 32-21. Its also the second straight Grey Cup loss for the Ticats, who lost 45-23 last year in Regina to the Saskatchewan Roughriders.dddddddddddd Backup quarterback Drew Tate had two TDs for Calgary. Paredes added the converts and two field goals. Banks scored Hamiltons touchdown. Medlock booted the convert and two field goals. A blocked field goal by Calgarys Demonte Bolden loomed large in Calgary taking a 17-7 halftime lead. The burly defensive lineman, in his first game since breaking his leg in September, batted down Medlocks 26-yard try with the Stampeders leading 14-0. The six-foot-five, 285-pound Bolden began his CFL career in Hamilton, playing two seasons there (09-10) before joining the Stampeders in 2012. Mitchell countered by marching Calgary 87 yards on eight plays, setting up Paredes 11-yard field goal at 12:43. But Collaros countered smartly, hitting Banks on a 45-yard TD pass at 13:39 to make it a 10-point game. Mitchell was a one-man show in the first half, hitting 14-of-17 passes for 220 of Calgarys 232 net yards. Despite Hamiltons terrible start, Collaros completed 9-of-13 attempts for 155 yards and a TD, accounting most of the Ticats 185 first-half offensive yards. It was a dreadful opening quarter for Hamilton, which posted -12 yards rushing and just four net yards. Calgary had 120 net yards, thanks to Mitchells 117 passing yards. Tates one-yard TD run 48 seconds into the second capped a 10-play, 66-yard drive and came after Hamiltons Brandon Stewart was called for pass interference in the end zone. Tate opened the scoring at 9:48 of the first with a one-yard touchdown that ended a five-play, 55-yard march. Members of the Stampeders receive $16,000 for the win while the Ticats earn $8,000 apiece. NOTES — Receiver Joe West and offensive lineman Edwin Harrison didnt dress for Calgary.
