There aren’t enough cream pies in the world for Orioles outfielder Adam Jones to appropriately celebrate last night’s crushing win against the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 of the ALDS. The O’s began the bottom of the eighth inning with a 4-3 lead, and proceeded to light up starting pitcher Max Scherzer and the Tigers bullpen like a pinball machines, plating eight runs. (Though the run explosion was also a function of an error from Tigers shortstop Andrew Romine.) The game ended 12-3.

The O’s set a couple franchise records with the win: most runs scored in a single postseason game, and most runs scored in a single postseason inning. And mind you, this is without Manny Machado and Chris Davis!

Now, onto Game 2. It starts at noon, so I hope everyone’s okay with Baltimore’s productivity grinding to a halt.
