If they get swept they are seven back in the loss column. I don't think the six left head to head would matter much.
Go 5-1 in those remaining head-to-heads and then you're only 3 back with 19 other games remaining. That's a game a week. No problem. Go 4-2 and you're 5 back, which is a much bigger hurdle but still achievable.
If anyone wants to quit if the O's lose tonight, go ahead. But I won't be.
