After much frustration waiting for start times to be announced for the American League Division Series between the Orioles and the Detroit Tigers, fans have finally received some clarity.
The results of the Wild Card Games are now in the books, which means the times for the first three games of the series have been finalized.
With the Kansas City Royals winning the AL Wild Card Game Tuesday night, we officially learned that Oriole Park at Camden Yards will host Game 1 of the ALDS Thursday at 5:37 p.m with Chris Tillman taking on 2013 AL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer.
The second game of the series will begin at 12:07 p.m. Friday as a result of San Francisco winning the National League Wild Card Game.
Game 3 in Detroit is already locked into a 3:45 p.m. start on Sunday while times for Monday’s Game 4 and Wednesday’s Game 5 back in Baltimore — if necessary — have yet to be announced.
All ALDS games will be televised on TBS with Brian Anderson, Dennis Eckersley, and Joe Simpson on the call.
Major League Baseball also announced that Jeff Kellogg, Scott Barry, Dan Bellino, Fieldin Culbreth, Paul Schrieber, and Jim Wolf will be the umpiring crew for the Orioles-Tigers series.
Umpires CB Bucknor, Chris Conroy, Ed Hickox, and Brian O’Nora will serve in the replay center in New York during the Division Series.
