Monday night Orioles game thread: vs Tigers, 7:05

If you can’t beat the Tigers you don’t deserve the playoffs.

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Baltimore Orioles Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Orioles are back home and ready to take on the Detroit Tigers, one of the worst teams in baseball. When we last saw the Tigers, it was about one week before the Adley Rutschman promotion. Even the pre-Adley Orioles should have beaten the Tigers, but they did not. They were swept in the Motor City, which is frankly just embarrassing.

Time to get some revenge! With their playoff hopes dangling by a thread, the Orioles must beat the Tigers if they want to extend the playoff dream another day. Tyler Wells is back in the starter spot against another Tyler, Tyler Alexander. Battle of the Tylers! Who will prevail? My money is on Tyler.
