Through their 101-game winning streak this season, the Orioles earned the top spot in the American League’s playoffs. The Orioles won 102 games and made the World Series in 1979, which was one of the most successful seasons for an Orioles club ever.
The threat of being swept in the playoffs now exists for the Orioles after two home losses. The Rangers now have the opportunity to be swept after not being swept the whole regular season. After an incredible 4-0 road postseason record against AL East monsters the Rays and Orioles, they will be coming home.
Here is the 2023 playoff bracket, and here is the whole postseason schedule. Let’s move on to the essential details for Game 3 of the ALDS.

This season, the Rangers’ offence was more stronger at home than away, despite their recent 4-0 road record. They return to Globe Life Field, where they hit.274/.349/.495 this year (105 OPS points and 22 batting average points better than away). The pitching staff for the Orioles has also been reduced.
Eovaldi is an interesting man. Before suffering a forearm injury, he was among the top pitchers in baseball. In six starts after his comeback in September, he had a 9.30 ERA and never went more than five innings. He then crushed the Rays in Game 2 of the Wild Card Series at Tropicana Field (6 2/3 IP, 1 ER, 0 BB, 8 K).
Especially now that the Rangers offence is burning hot and closing in on home, the Orioles simply lack the pitching to contain this offence. The Orioles will be swept in 2023 for the first time, but not without a fight. Pick: Orioles 5, Rangers 7.
