Orioles fall out of wild-card race as hopes for the playoffs begin to fade in Baltimore.


In 2012, major-league baseball added a new wrinkle to the playoff format. It was the introduction of the wildcard game. In the American League, Baltimore defeated Texas in the first wildcard playoff.

The Orioles had hopes of defending their claim as the only American League wild-card winners. At the beginning of the penultimate week of the season, the Orioles were one of six teams hoping to have one of the two wildcard spots.

The Orioles started the week in Boston. They took the first two games against the Red Sox, and were very much alive in their wildcard pursuit. They lost the final game in that series, but were able to look forward to a weekend series against the Rays, the top wildcard team.

Tampa Bay swept that series, as the Orioles have fallen to the bottom of the wildcard pack. It might be the end of an exciting season in Baltimore, which has included a team record setting homerun pace for Chris Davis. Davis surpassed the previous team mark of 50 homeruns by Brady Anderson.
