The baseball playoffs have started off with a bang, and lots of bangs have come from the Baltimore Orioles bats. And it starts with their OF/DH, Nelson Cruz. In a 3-0 sweep of the favored Detroit Tigers, Nelly went a cool 6-12, with 4 runs, 5 RBI, and two HR. No HR was bigger than the decisive blow in Detroit in Game 3. It broke open a scoreless game and quieted an already mellow crowd. And put the O's in their first ALCS since Bill Clinton stalked the halls of the White House.
