Camden Yards was still quiet about three hours before the 12:07 p.m. first pitch of Game 2 in the American League Division Series.

Groundskeepers raked the dirt along the base paths and a few players stretched in the outfield. The sky lived up to the partly cloudy forecast, with patches of blue occasionally marred by passing gray.

The Orioles will attempt to take a 2-0 lead over the Detroit Tigers behind left-hander Wei-Yin Chen on Friday afternoon. But Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said he actually liked the fact his team was facing a quick turnaround from its 12-3 loss in the Thursday evening opener.

I think it's good," he said. "It takes your mind off it. You have a new game to focus on."
