There is a fierce race for one of two wild-card positions between quite a few teams this season in the MLB.
One team, the Baltimore Orioles, is a surprise contender, as they're still just kind of hanging around.

Luckily for the O's, they'll be the triumphant team in the wild-card hunt come October. Here's why.
