It’s October baseball! The birds of the American League East, the Baltimore Orioles and the Toronto Blue Jays, will be clashing in a winner-take-all wild card playoff game. Watch every home run from Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada on Oct. 4th at 8pm EST online here!
For baseball fans, it doesn’t get any better than this. The Major League Baseball playoffs will begin with an exciting wild card game between two very evenly matched 89-73 teams in the Toronto Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles. Toronto may have the slight edge in this game as they will be hosting the O’s but this war will be anything but easy for the two clubs. Expected to take the mound for the Blue Jays, with an ERA of 4.37, is their number one ace, Marcus Stroman. The Orioles will answer with their own right-hander, Chris Tillman who has the better ERA at 3.77. WATCH THE ORIOLES VS. BLUE JAYS ONLINE HERE.
Waiting for the winner of this game are the Texas Rangers of the AL West. The Rangers, with a record of 95-67, will be hosting the American League Division series which will be a best of 5 set of games. But before anyone packs their bags for the Lone Star State, one of these birds need to soar over the other.
The O’s are going to hope to get big numbers from their slugging duo of Mark Trumbo and Manny Machado, while the Jay’s will be leaning on their DH Edwin Encarnacion who may knock a few over the fence. Defense wins championships and both teams will need strong outings from their starting pitchers as well as good support from their bullpens if they expect to play any more games in October.
