Despite popular demand, the Orioles and Tigers will play each other one more time.

MLB: Baltimore Orioles at Kansas City Royals Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

So, folks, has this Orioles-Tigers series lived up to your expectations so far? It’s been a bare-knuckle brawl between the two worst teams in baseball, and so far, the O’s have taken the upper hand with two wins in the first three games.

The season series concludes this afternoon, with each team having won three and lost three against each other this year. It all comes down to this finale to see who gets bragging rights.

The O’s have won a season series against only one team this year, the Angels (4-3), though they’re currently 7-6 up on the Blue Jays with two series left to play. The Orioles also haven’t won a single series since taking two out of three from the Royals nearly a month ago. So much is on the line today! Get excited!

The Orioles will send out their best starter, John Means, who has bounced back recently after a terrible start to the second half. He’ll be opposed by winless lefty Tyler Alexander. Come join us, won’t you? It beats working.

Orioles lineup:

3B Hanser Alberto
RF Trey Mancini
LF Anthony Santander
1B Renato Nunez
2B Jonathan Villar
DH Mark Trumbo
CF Austin Hays
