The NL East leading Mets came to visit Camden Yards for a mid-week two-game set that was split with one win by each team. In both games, the victor scored at least 10 runs, with the Mets scoring 14 in their win Wednesday night. These two games looked like football scores!
Finally, the Orioles played someone in the A.L. East other than the Red Sox or Yankees. The Tampa Bay Rays came to town for a three-game set, their first three meetings this season.
After an opening series sweep of the Boston Red Sox, the Orioles headed south for a showdown with Gerrit Cole and the New York Yankees.
