It's not out of the question for the Orioles to have their best record in the last 30 years, if they manage to win their final four games of the season. I'd be very surprised if that happens, but it's still a possibility, and that's really cool.
Rain is in the New York area, and the forecast for when exactly the game will be played and how much it might be delayed, either before it starts or after it's underway, is a big mystery. I'm told there will be an extra large crowd to celebrate what could be the last home game in pinstripes for long-time Yankees Hiroki Kuroda and Ichiro Suzuki. It's nice of them to have a sendoff for a couple of players like that.
Steve Pearce is back in the Orioles lineup for this game. Don't hurt yourself, Steve. We need you for the postseason.
