The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles in the ALDS was a series that felt destined to go the full five games. So far, they're on pace, with the series tied at one game apiece heading to Yankee Stadium.
While the Orioles and Yankees split the 18-game regular-season series, the Orioles went 6-3 at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees may have the payroll, but the Orioles have made an improbable run all year, and they show no signs of slowing down.
What are the top matchups heading into Wednesday night's game?
The five biggest matchups encompass both the hitting and pitching of both teams, as well as one that doesn't seem like a competition, yet it may be the biggest key of all.
