These two teams come into this four game series fighting for the final wild card spot in the AL. Toronto currently holds a 2.5 game lead over Baltimore. Both of these teams are playing well right now, which is going to make for a very entertaining series. I like Baltimore to get the win in Game 1 and Toronto to get the win in Game 2.
