The Orioles haven’t lost consecutive games at home since June 28-29. They went 31-10 in their final 41 regular season home games and are now 2-1 in Baltimore this postseason.

The Royals won 8-6 in 10 innings last night. The Orioles went 6-for-15 with runners in scoring position, but they left 10 men on base.

The bullpen allowed three earned runs in the 10th inning after surrendering a total of three earned in their first 16 2/3 postseason innings.

Caleb Joseph is behind the plate today, the only change since Game 1.
