1. Need a win: Having sunk to third place and down five to the Red Sox in the American League East, the Orioles are moving dangerously close to being out of the division race. Going in to the week, the Orioles' worst-case scenario to end this four-game series with a realistic chance at catching Boston was to split, and now that's their best-case scenario. The Orioles enter the night holding the second wild card, one game behind the Toronto Blue Jays and leading the Detroit Tigers by 1 1/2 games. The Houston Astros are two games back and the Seattle Mariners are three back.
