When the Orioles clinch their first division title in 17 years, outfielder Delmon Young will be in the middle of another postseason celebration - his sixth in six years with four different teams. "I've been fortunate enough to be on teams where you have good players, good managers, a good front office, good young players that come up and a knack for winning," said Young, who has batted .288 with seven homers in 77 games with the Orioles through Monday.

Ian Kinsler hit a go-ahead homer in the seventh as the Detroit Tigers swept a three-game series against Cleveland by beating the Indians 6-4 Sunday. Kinsler went deep off reliever Bryan Shaw to give the Tigers a 4-3 lead.
As expected, Alex Avila was not behind the plate on Monday night after leaving Sunday's game with a headache and lightheadedness. He's still considered day to day.
