BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Orioles clinched the American League East on Thursday with a 2-0 win over the Boston Red Sox at Camden Yards.
The MAGIC NUMBER is ZERO! It is the first time since 2014 that the O's have won the AL East, and they will be the top seed in the American League playoffs.
What happens if the Orioles win the AL East?
If the O's were to clinch the AL East, they would have a first-round bye and have home-field advantage through the American League championship series.
They would host the American League Division Series starting on Oct. 7 against the winner of the No. 4 and No. 5 seeds from the wild-card series.
The ALDS would be a best-of-five schedule.
- ALDS Game 1: Oct. 7 at Camden Yards.
- ALDS Game 2: Oct. 8 at Camden Yards.
- ALDS Game 3: Oct. 10 at TBD.
- ALDS Game 4, if needed: Oct. 11 at TBD.
