The Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles are both in action on Wednesday, with both teams tied up at one game apiece in their respective series.
Baltimore may have a bit of a tougher road than their NL counterpart, now playing the rest of their ALDS series in Yankee Stadium. The Nationals, meanwhile, will take on the Cardinals for at least two games in the comfort of their home surroundings.
