2. A break from the best. The Orioles have had difficulty finding wins during their tough early schedule, and go into Detroit with three straight losses and five in six games having been swept out of Boston. The Orioles get just their second break from 2017 playoff teams against the Tigers, who had the worst record in the American League last season and are one game out of last in the AL Central. The Tigers are one of only a few teams colder than the Orioles at the moment, entering the series with five straight losses.
