The Orioles battled it out in the incredibly competitive AL East as they sit in fourth place in the standings. The East is one of the only divisions where three teams have won more than 80 games this season. The Orioles are 77-71 overall so far, with a .520 winning percentage. The Orioles have been very strong at home this season, winning 42 games at Oriole Park during the campaign. Their recent form is faltering though, as they have lost six of their last 10 matches. They are seven games behind the second-place Blue Jays and are still strongly in contention for a Wild Card spot. A robust end to the season could see the Baltimore team slip into the playoffs, but they ideally need to win the majority of their remaining matches.

The Astros have been in top form all season. Their consistency is unmatched in the entire American League so far. They are the only team in the entire conference to secure a playoff spot at this point. Their overall record is a scintillating 99-51 with a whopping .660 winning percentage. No team is as good away from home, as they went 49-28. Their recent form is also quite staggering, as they have won nine of their last 10 games. They are on course for one of their biggest regular season records in franchise history.

The backbone of the Astros team has been the performance of Justin Verlander, who currently has the best ERA of 1.78 in all of MLB.
