Orioles, Rays begin series steeped in AL wild-card chase

If you think mid-August is too early to talk about the major league postseason picture, you might want to think again.

When the surging Baltimore Orioles face the slumping Tampa Bay Rays for the first meeting of a three-game series at St. Petersburg, Fla. on Friday night, it will amount to essentially a playoff series.

After all, the Orioles and Rays currently are in a tight battle for the American League's final wild-card spot, with a few teams right behind them.
