September 12, 2012 | WNST Staff

The Baltimore Orioles announced their 2013 regular season schedule, and it’s a mix of the same and some variety for Buck Showalter’s club.

The Orioles open their season on the road with AL East opponent Tampa Bay, and after the opening series, they will return home to Camden Yards to host the Minnesota Twins in Baltimore.

They will play 19 games each against their division foes in the Yankees, Red Sox, Blue Jays, and Rays.

New to the schedule will be the Houston Astros, who will be joining the American League next season. They travel to Houston from June 4-6 , and they host the newcomers from  July 30-August 1st.

Their NL Interleague schedule consists of road trips to the Padres, Giants, and Diamondbacks from August 6th-August 14th.

The Orioles hopefully will be hitting the schedule trying to build off their first winning season since 1997.
