ALDS Game 1 Orioles Victory GIF Party: Orioles beat Tigers, 12-3

It is Thursday night.

The Orioles have just beaten the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 of the American League Division Series. THE ORIOLES HAVE A 1-0 LEAD IN THE ALDS. This is not a drill. I repeat, THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

Nelson Cruz hit a two-run home run off reigning AL Cy Young winner Max Scherzer. J.J. Hardy hit a solo home run off Scherzer. The Orioles obliterated the Detroit bullpen in the bottom of the eighth inning, scoring eight runs on the way to a 12-3 victory.

That is more runs than the Orioles have ever before scored in a postseason game.
