Baltimore Orioles: Four Things To Pay Attention To Against Texas Rangers
The 2019 Baltimore Orioles will win more games than the 2018 Baltimore Orioles.
We all know what went wrong last season, no reason to dive back into the pitfalls and shortcomings of the 2018 Orioles. As bad as things were, many believed it was a real possibility that the 2019 Orioles would struggle to surpass last season’s 47 total win mark. It’s come down to the final 23 game stretch of the season, but I’m confident in saying this team will end with a better record in 2019. I know, real bold prediction!

Currently at 46-93, Brandon Hyde‘s team needs just two wins to better last year’s record. A small victory, but a victory nonetheless, unless you’re hell-bent on getting the number one overall draft pick again, but I’m not too sure the Orioles will be able to catch Detroit in the coming days.
While Camden Yards is a masterpiece and even a day of bad baseball can’t ruin the views and Camden Yards experience, it’s always more fun to watch our favorite team win at home. Last year’s Birds won 28 games at home, six more than this year’s home win total of 22. With 13 home contests remaining, the Orioles will need a big series against Texas if they want to beat the 28 mark. Los Angeles, Toronto, and Seattle all come in for three games each to finish out the season.
The series kicks off Thursday night at 7:05 pm. John Means climbs the bump for the Orioles while Kolby Allard throws for Texas.
