The favored teams, LA and Detroit, look to avoid a sweep against Kansas City and Baltimore respectively.

Patrick Smith

After two games in each of the American League Divisional series, the team that was favored coming into the best of five series is down 2-0 and facing elimination.

First off, the Baltimore Orioles will look to seal the sweep on the road this afternoon (first pitch at 1:45 MDT) after a furious rally in game two brought them to the precipice of the ALCS. To do so, they'll have to defeat their third straight AL Cy Young award-winning opponent in David Price of the Detroit Tigers. Price, acquired at this year's trade deadline, will face off against Bud Norris of the Orioles.

The 98 win Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Anaheim Angels, who lost both of their home games against the Kansas City Royals in extra innings, have their backs against the wall. In the nightcap (first pitch at 5:37 MDT), they will look to the very well compensated CJ Wilson to battle against Big Game James Shields in game 3 - this time in Kansas City.

Please discuss the playoff action today in this thread. I'll be rooting for the Royals and Orioles.
