1. Western woes. The Orioles have long struggled on the West Coast, having not had a winning trip on the opposite side of the country since 2014. They went 4-6 out west last year and 9-10 in 2016, but have had slightly more success at Angel Stadium. The Orioles and Angels have alternated series wins and losses the past four seasons, with the Orioles winning in 2016 and 2014.
