Game 159: Orioles (95-64) @ Blue Jays (81-78), 7:07 p.m. ET

Chris Tillman's last tune up before Game One of the ALDS. The O's play the Blue Jays, who are becoming my least favorite team.

Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports

In order for the O's to earn home field advantage throughout the playoffs they need to win out and the Angels need to stop showing up to the ballpark. Los Angeles' "Magic Number" for that privilege is down to just one. That is the closest remaining race in baseball. Blah! Just get to October already.
