Who plays where in the AL wild-card race?

Who plays where in the AL wild-card race?

BALTIMORE – What’s left for the Orioles? After an off day on Monday, they go to Toronto for three games and end the regular season at Yankee Stadium beginning Friday. 

They’ll start Tuesday’s series at the Rogers Centre trailing the Blue Jays by 1 ½ games in the wild card race. Toronto leads 9-7 in the season series, and the Orioles must sweep the three games in order to secure home field advantage if the two teams tie for the wild card.

With Detroit losing to Kansas City 12-9 on Sunday, the Orioles have a 1 ½ game lead over Detroit. Seattle remains 2 ½ games back and Houston is three out. 

While the Orioles are playing in Toronto, the Tigers play four at Cleveland beginning Monday, and conclude the season with three games at Atlanta. 

Toronto concludes its regular season with three games at Boston. 

If the Orioles and Tigers finish for the second wild card, they would play one game here on Oct. 3.

The wild card game is Oct. 4, and the American League Division Series begins Oct. 6.

Report: Redskins' DeAngelo Hall was told he'd torn ACL, MRI scheduled

Report: Redskins' DeAngelo Hall was told he'd torn ACL, MRI scheduled

Redskins safety DeAngelo Hall injured his knee in the first half of Washington's 29-27 win over the Giants Sunday. 

After the game, he told ESPN's Josina Anderson that he was told he'd torn his ACL, but would undergo an MRI to confirm. Anderson notes that Hall seems to be walking normally. 

Jay Gruden said in his postgame comments that Hall was scheduled for an MRI Monday. 

When the veteran DB was first injured, he was unable to put any weight on his leg and needed assistance to exit the field. 

A defensive captain for Washington, Hall made the trasition from cornerback to safety this season. The only major injury of his career came in September of 2014 when he suffered a ruptured left Achilles tendon and missed the remainder of that season.
