Brad Penner-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

A by the numbers look at the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles, who meet in the American League Division Series.

When the New York Yankees meet the Baltimore Orioles in the American League Division Series beginning Sunday evening at Camden Yards in Baltimore only one number will really matter. That number is three -- which is how many victories it will take to win the best-of-five playoff series.
