Orioles join group of prominent teams

The 31 wins of the Baltimore Orioles in 2018 have boosted them into 5th place for the best season start through 40 games. They join a group of famous teams, the ’29 Athletics, ’41 Browns, ’46 Red Sox, ’98 Yankees, 2001 Mariners all went 31-9 through 40.

With two games left, Baltimore will now attack the ’12 Giants (32-8) and will try to catch up with the ’28 and ’39 Yankees who went 33-7. The leader of the pack is out of reach though. In 1984 the Tigers went 35-5!
