The Orioles and Nationals play two games in Baltimore, followed by a pair of matchups in Washington, D.C., Aug. 24 and 25.

Baltimore leads the Interleague Play series 33-23, having defeated the Nationals four out of six times last season. In 10 seasons of play against the Orioles, the Nationals have only once won the season series. That occurred in 2007 when Washington went 4-2 against their nearby foes. The teams have not played one another in the World Series, the only other time besides the preseason when the teams would meet.
