Yankees vs. Orioles: Wait, there's a run?

The start of the American League Division Series between the Orioles and Yankees was delayed because of rain, which meant reruns of The Big Bang Theory, which meant the TV went off. If you're reading this, the odds are good that you like the The Big Bang Theory -- it's really popular! -- so I won't belabor the point. Just know that I'm judging you and your taste.

And when the TV went back on, the Yankees already had a run. Derek Jeter led the game off with a grounder up the middle for a single, and he scored on a line-drive double from Ichiro. Before a lot of Orioles fans made their way to their seats, the Yankees were up 1-0.

It could have been worse for Jason Hammel and the Orioles, but Ichiro was caught stealing third. Alex Rodriguez was called out on strikes shortly after, and Robinson Cano flew out to right field for the third out of of the inning.

I didn't see any of this except for the Cano part, so I regret that I don't have any sort of interesting commentary to add. The important part is that I didn't have to watch The Big Bang Theory.
