If the Orioles are going to get back into contention (HA!) it will need to start with getting wins at home and beating up on the lesser teams. The Detroit Tigers are not, on the whole, a good team. They sure seem better than the O's right now, but who isn't?
While the team still hasn't being winning games, the offense does seem to have come alive in the last few days. They have scored at least five runs in three consecutive games and it's looking like Manny Machado isn't the only major league hitter on the roster after all.
It's a gray, overcast day in Baltimore, but an Orioles win would sure brighten it up.
