Orioles start last August road trip as the push for the postseason continues

Scoreboard watching also includes the Home Run Riches winnings tally — now at more than $126,000.

The Baltimore Orioles will head to Houston this weekend to take on the American League’s best team so far this season — the beginning of a six-game road trip to close out the month of August. This time of year is when baseball fans start to do a lot of scoreboard-watching, as teams spend the last several weeks of the season jockeying for playoff spots. That means every game counts, especially for the Orioles, who are in the thick of the hunt for a wildcard playoff berth. The O’s begin the weekend 2 ½ games behind the Seattle Mariners for the final wildcard spot, and the Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox are nipping at the Birds’ heels, both just 2 ½ games behind Baltimore. 

The games are also meaningful to the hopeful Contestants of the Game participating in the Lottery’s Home Run Riches Bases Loaded FAST PLAY second-chance promotion. Those lucky few who have been selected are watching their own scoreboard as the Orioles' powerful offense has notched 129 home runs to date, providing needed support for the team’s starting pitchers and awarding more than $126,000 in prizes for the Lottery’s Contestants of the Game.

There is still time for you to be selected for an upcoming game. The Lottery’s final Contestant of the Game drawing for 2022 will be held on Aug. 30, selecting the winners for games in September and October.  To enter, submit any winning or non-winning FAST PLAY Home Run Riches Bases Loaded ticket purchased between March 7 and August 29 into your My Lottery Rewards account.
