The Blue Jays lost another difficult game last night in Houston against the Astros, padding the Orioles first place lead in the AL East to one whole game. Now, Baltimore hosts the Texas Rangers, fresh off their exciting trade deadline, for a three-game set at Camden Yards.

How tough will the rest of August and September be for the Birds and their division opponents?’s Steve Melewski took a look:

Orioles: 28 at home, 30 away, 41 versus .500 or better teams
Red Sox: 22 at home, 37 away, 37 versus .500 or better teams
Blue Jays: 25 at home, 32 away, 35 versus .500 or better teams
