DETROIT – The Orioles are one win away from advancing to the American League Championship Series as they prepare to face the Detroit Tigers in Game 3 of the AL Division Series on Sunday afternoon at Comerica Park.
If the Orioles do sweep the Tigers, it would mark their first playoff sweep since the 1971 ALCS win, three-games-to-none, over the Oakland Athletics.
Left-handed-hitting Ryan Flaherty will start at third base against Tigers left-hander David Price. Nick Hundley will start at catcher after Caleb Joseph started Game 2.
Price, who the Orioles know well from his days with the Tampa Bay Rays, only faced them once this season. While pitching for Tampa Bay on May 8, he allowed three runs and nine hits in five innings in a 3-1 loss.
