Can the Orioles win a series? Can Keegan Akin continue his strong string of starts? Can we have nice things?

Hey guys! The Orioles could win a series today against team from the A.L. East! Do you know how many times that has happened this year? Once, and it was the first series of the season against the Red Sox.

That would be pretty fun! I’m always in favor of watching the Yankees lose. And if Keegan Akin can keep up his recent success, the Orioles might actually be able to do it. In his two previous starts, Akin has pitched a total of 12 innings and has given up two runs on five hits with 11 strikeouts. That’s not bad at all! I had pretty much written Akin off after his rough start to the year, but I would love to be wrong.
