The Baltimore Orioles have a chance to make it the post-season for the first time since 2014. In the 2014 season the Baltimore Orioles went 96-66. The Orioles need to lose 19 games in order to be mathematically eliminated from the post-season.

The Orioles are currently in a fight with the Toronto Blue Jays and the Boston Red Sox for first place and the first wildcard spot. The Orioles are in the process of making history like they’ve been doing this whole year. In the month of June the Baltimore Orioles hit 56 home runs, which is now the record for most home runs hit in the month of June. The Orioles have the most home runs in Major League Baseball (MLB) with 226 home runs Leading the team with 41 home runs is Mark Trumbo. He currently leads with other players in MLB following closely behind.

If the Orioles continue on this record-setting pace the Orioles will make the post-season. So let’s all as Baltimoreans pray that the Orioles make the post-season and hopefully the World series for the first time since 1983.
