BALTIMORE - Orioles rookie third baseman Manny Machado was a 4-year-old when Baltimore and the New York Yankees last met in the postseason. In that series, lefthander David Wells won a game for Baltimore, Cecil Fielder and Darryl Strawberry homered for the Yankees, and a youngster named Jeffrey Maier stuck his glove in the middle of the whole thing. The 1996 AL Championship Series was a lifetime ago for many Orioles fans and a rather meaningless event in the development of Machado, now 20 and a key player in Baltimore.

Roberto Alomar is 6 feet tall, has two home runs in two days, is hitting .412 in the American League Championship Series and is a huge reason why the Blue Jays own a commanding 3-1 lead over the Oakland A's. But he still thinks of himself as a little guy. "Somebody had to set the table for the big guys," he said after yesterday's 7-6 Blue Jays win, a game in which Alomar had four hits, scored two runs and knocked in two more with a game-tying...

For Bernie Williams, it was a quiet game: a double, a single, a stolen base. And yet, just like every one of his postseason games with the Yankees this season, he was in on a crucial play. With one out, Wade Boggs on first and Derek Jeter on second in the third inning, Williams banged a doubleplay ball that Roberto Alomar let roll between his legs. Jeter scored, Boggs went to third. Two batters later, Cecil Fielder hit a three-run home run, and Darryl Strawberry followed that with another home run. New York led, 6-0. "I don't know how you get him out," Orioles manager Davey Johnson said of Williams.

DETROIT - Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers will face a familiar foe in the AL Championship Series. The Tigers had less than 24 hours to savor their five-game victory over the Oakland Athletics before learning their opposition in the ALCS. Detroit will face the Yankees in a rematch of one of last year's AL division series. New York edged Baltimore, 3-1, on Friday night in the deciding Game 5 of their division series. The Tigers were set to fly hours later, with Game 1 at Yankee Stadium on Saturday night and Doug Fister facing Andy Pettitte.

Game 2 of the NLCS is Wednesday at 3 p.m., followed by the ALCS opener at 8 p.m. McCarver, the NLCS analyst (with Sean McDonough on play-by-play), gives Pittsburgh's staff the edge over Atlanta.

Time of game: Two hours, 47 minutes. Hope you enjoyed it last night. Because tonight, when Toronto's David Cone (4-3, 2.55 earned run average) meets Oakland's Mike Moore (17-12, 4.12) in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series, chances are they will break three hours with ease. The major league strikeout leader this season, Cone goes deep into the count against most batters. Moore simply takes his own sweet time out there. Said A's catcher Terry Steinbach, "Sometimes I go out there and tell him to speed it up a little.

Pedro Martinez didn't seem to be surprised when Phillies manager Charlie Manuel yesterday named the righthander his World Series Game 2 starter tomorrow against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium "My reaction was the way it is now, relaxed and normal," Martinez said yesterday before the team's workout at Yankee Stadium. Manuel said he picked Martinez to split up his lefthanded starters. Cliff Lee is the Game 1 starter tonight, and Cole Hamels is slated to start Game 3 on Saturday at Citizens Bank Park.

Two years ago, Dave Henderson captured the hearts of Boston Red Sox fans everywhere with his heroics in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series against the California Angels. He saved Boston from elimination with a dramatic two-out, two-strike, ninth-inning home run, and later knocked in the winning run in that game in the 11th inning with a sacrifice fly. The Red Sox went on to win the series in seven games. Yesterday, Henderson took those very same hearts he captured 24 months ago and crushed them into a million tiny pieces.

THERE WERE times this year when Justin Verlander took the mound while his team was reeling a bit - and the righthander's presence was Detroit's best shot at snapping out of a momentary funk. Now, the hard-throwing ace is in a different situation. Led by Verlander, the Tigers' rotation has been absolutely terrific this postseason, and his job is simply to keep this remarkable run going against the slumping New York Yankees. "I think pitching, much like hitting, is contagious," Verlander said.

NEW YORK - Alex Rodriguez returned to the Yankees' starting lineup for their AL Championship Series opener against Detroit on Saturday night, dropped to sixth in the batting order. Rodriguez was 2 for 16 with no RBIs in the division series against Baltimore, going hitless in 12 at-bats against righthanded pitchers with nine strikeouts. Manager Joe Girardi pinch-hit for him in Games 3 and 4. "This is a guy we know can do a lot of damage," Girardi said. "I talk about sometimes going with my gut and evaluating what I see and different things you take into account when you made the lineup up, talk to people, and I think he's raring to go. " The 37-year-old third baseman had not hit as low as sixth since Joe Torre batted him eighth in the fourth and final game of the 2006 AL division series against the Tigers, according to Stats L.L.C.

NEW YORK - Raul Ibanez strapped the goggles to his face and shook a bottle of champagne in the middle of the Yankees clubhouse. A teammate doused him in bubbly and it soaked his bald head and pin-striped pants. "That's all you can ask for," Ibanez said. Ten feet away, Alex Rodriguez danced. He, too, held a bottle and savored the moment he was prevented from creating. The Yankees defeated Baltimore, 3-1, Friday in the fifth game of an epic American League division series with their $275 million man benched and Ibanez, signed one day after the start of spring training, so pivotal.

DETROIT - The Texas tag team of Nelson Cruz and Mike Napoli was too much for the Detroit Tigers. Cruz made a rocket throw to keep the score tied, then hit a crushing three-run home run in the 11th inning off Jose Valverde that helped send the Rangers over the Tigers, 7-3, Wednesday night for a three-games-to-one lead in the American League Championship Series. Napoli had put Texas ahead with an RBI single earlier in the 11th. Cruz, whose grand slam in the 11th inning won Game 2, once again starred for the Rangers in a game delayed 2 hours, 13 minutes at the start by rain.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Nelson Cruz hit the first game-ending grand slam in postseason history, lifting the Texas Rangers over the Detroit Tigers, 7-3, in 11 innings Monday for a two-games-to-none lead in the American League Championship Series. Cruz also hit a tying home run in the seventh inning. His second homer of the game was a high drive to left field off Ryan Perry with nobody out in the 11th, and it came after a misplay in the Detroit outfield loaded the bases. "It was amazing," Cruz said.

ARLINGTON, Texas - The Detroit Tigers are wet and wounded. After Game 2 of the AL championship series in Texas was postponed Sunday because of more rain in the forecast, manager Jim Leyland said the Tigers have lost their second starting outfielder for the series. Magglio Ordonez is out for the rest of the season because of more problems with the right ankle that he broke last season, an injury that caused him to miss more than a month this summer and come out of the twice-interrupted ALCS opener.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Delmon Young's bat will be silent during the AL Championship Series. If the Detroit Tigers can get to the World Series without him, they might get back the slugger who hit three homers in the AL division series. Young is out of the ALCS against the Texas Rangers because of an oblique injury. He aggravated an earlier ailment against the New York Yankees, and the Tigers left him off their roster for the best-of-seven series that began Saturday night. Manager Jim Leyland said that even though an MRI exam "doesn't show anything real significant," the Tigers were taking no chances with Young.

ARLINGTON, Texas - No more watching for Justin Verlander. The Detroit Tigers ace is back on his normal routine to start the American League Championship Series opener. Verlander will pitch against defending American League champion Texas on regular rest Saturday night. It'll be the fifth day after his Game 3 start in the AL division series that was a restart of sorts since rain halted the series opener of aces after just 11/2 innings. Tigers manager Jim Leyland was steadfast in sticking with the decision not to use his 24-game winner in the clinching game of the ALDS against the New York Yankees on Thursday night, even though Verlander volunteered to pitch in relief, and the manager joked with the big righthander about doing so during the 3-2 victory.
