Though the Orioles can close out the American League Division Series with a win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday afternoon, start times for Games 4 and 5 were announced if the series were to go beyond three games.
Game 4 would begin at either 12:07 p.m. or 1:37 p.m. on Monday, depending on whether the ALDS meeting between the Los Angeles Angels and the Kansas City Royals is still alive. Owning a 2-0 lead of their own, the Royals closing out a series win over the Angels on Sunday would push the Orioles-Tigers Game 4 start to 1:37 on Monday afternoon.
If necessary, Game 5 would be back at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Wednesday with a start time of 5:37 p.m. unless the other ALDS matchup is complete. Under that scenario, first pitch wouldn’t come until 8:07 p.m. that evening.
After Saturday’s off-day in Detroit, the Orioles will resume their series against the Tigers on Sunday with Game 3’s first pitch at 3:45 p.m. at Comerica Park. Named the new Game 3 starter on Saturday afternoon, Bud Norris will face 2012 AL Cy Young Award winner David Price as Baltimore goes for the three-game sweep.
