Know The Matchups

It all comes down to a single-elimination showdown between AL East foes.

No Matter What 

No matter what the outcome is, remember the Orioles had a record-breaking season. Mark Trumbo led the league in most home runs and in turn, Baltimore led majors with 253 home runs. Trey Mancini made his epic debut, Hyun Soo Kim was an at-bat aficionado and overall, the Orioles brought the magic time and time again.
