Kjerstad to make MLB playoff debut with Orioles today

Kjerstad blasts home run for first MLB hit

Game 1 of the American League Division Series between the Baltimore Orioles and the Texas Rangers begins today.

Heston Kjerstad, the former Arkansas outfielder who got the September call-up, will be on the active roster for the series.

The Orioles were the No. 1 seed by virtue of having the American League’s best record, as they went 101-61 and won the East Division by two games over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Baltimore would’ve gotten a showdown with the Rays, but Texas took them out in two games with ease in the Wild Card series earlier this week.

In the other division series, Minnesota will be taking on the defending American League champion Astros.

The Twins dispatched Toronto in two games for their first postseason series win since 2002.
