The Orioles are hoping to clinch their first division title since 1997 in front of their fans in Baltimore.


BALTIMORE – After Manny Machado injured his right knee on Aug. 11, the Orioles have regularly used Chris Davis at third base.


BOSTON – For most of Wednesday, the Orioles looked as if they were romp over the Boston Red Sox.


BALTIMORE – J.J. Hardy is getting a day off. After leaving Monday’s game with a lower back spasm in the eighth inning, Hardy will not start. Ryan Flaherty gets the start instead.


CHICAGO – The Orioles have had an unprecedented week. Not only do they have their largest lead in the American League East in nearly 17 years, but they have had an enjoyable week in Chicago.
