On Wednesday night, baseball fans will get to enjoy the Boston Red Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles game streaming online or on live television. The Orioles enter the game with the slimmest of chances to earn an American League Wild Card spot, while the Boston Red Sox continue their stay atop the AL East division. Which of these two teams will win their latest matchup? Here's a look at the Red Sox vs. Orioles game preview with matchup odds, Game Time, TV Channel, and how to watch it live streaming online.

MLB game preview

The Boston Red Sox are currently 87-64 overall with a 41-36 record on the road and leads their division by just 2.5 games over the NY Yankees.

The team has won two-straight games over this Orioles team, both of which came in the 11th inning. Last night's contest was a 1-0 win that came thanks to a wild pitch from Brad Brach which helped Jackie Bradley Jr. score the only run of the game. Prior to that, it was a higher-scoring 10-8 win for the Red Sox. Now they'll try for three in a row. For tonight's game, Boston sends their ace Chris Sale to the mound. Sale has a 16-7 record with a 2.86 ERA and 287 strikeouts over 201 innings this season.

There's a very small chance that the Baltimore Orioles could still reach the playoffs, but it will mean piling on the wins while teams ahead of them in the Wild Card chase drop. The Orioles are currently five games back from the second of two Wild Card spots, held by the Minnesota Twins. However, five teams are ahead of them including the Los Angeles Angels and Texas Rangers, who are one and three games behind Minnesota, respectively.
