1. Extra special. The Orioles used two extra-inning wins to send the Blue Jays out of town with a four-game split. The Yankees come in treading water, playing even baseball since last falling out of first place in the American League East on Aug. 1. That has allowed the Orioles to move within 1½ games of the Twins for the second wild card and within 3½ of the Yankees for the first wild card.
