News & Notes:

–As you can see, not only is Rajai Davis on the postseason roster, but he’s in the starting lineup tonight. Davis had been suffering from a pelvic injury and his status for the ALDS was in doubt. Obviously he’s shown that he is feeling much better. Ezekiel Carrera and Don Kelly would be his replacements should he get hurt again.

–Wei-Yin Cen will start Game 2 for the Orioles, going up against Justin Verlander on Friday at Noon.

— Las Vegas has the Tigers current odds to win the World Series at 5 to 1.  The Angels are also 5 to 1, while the Nationals are 9 to 2 and the Dodgers are 15 to 4.

–The forecast in Baltimore tonight: Partly cloudy, with a low around 62. Southeast wind around 6 mph.
