Series Preview: Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles (Games160-162)

Red Sox at OriolesThe last series of the year is upon us.

BOSTON RED SOX (96-63) at BALTIMORE ORIOLES (83-76)
Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore, MD
Orioles (9-7 vs. Red Sox in 2013, 4-3 at OPACY)

What’s at Stake?
The Orioles have a chance to knock the Sox out of the #1 seed in the AL playoff race.  This would be very difficult to do as the Orioles would have to sweep the Sox and then hope that Detroit or Oakland win their last 3 games.  As such, it doesn’t appear that it will happen.  The O’s should instead focus on ending the season in positive fashion.  Win 2 of 3 from the Red Sox.  That would give the Orioles back-to-back seasons of 85+ wins – a nice accomplishment.
