Bauer looked great in his last start against Oakland, but prior to that start he had given up 11 earned in 12 innings. Two very anemic offenses going at it today, but I still think this game should be a hitters feast.60%

Baltimore Sun: Orioles waste early lead, fall to Indians, 14-7
There's no sulking or self-pity in the Orioles' clubhouse after a defeat, manager Brandon Hyde proclaimed before they turned an early four-run lead off one of the game's best starters into a 14-7 loss to the Cleveland Indians. The loss will count among their worst of the season.
Such emotions would not be out of place Thursday, when another short start from Dan Straily, more unreliable relief pitching and some uncharacteristically sloppy defense gave the Orioles their third loss in two days. The result challenged the credulity that anything happening with this team is very positive.
Camden Chat: Thursday night Orioles game thread: at Indians, 6:10
One of the mysteries of our universe is why an MLB team would choose to schedule a weeknight game for 6:10pm local time. There is not an obvious answer. The Orioles and Indians will begin their game at the strange time of 6:10 Eastern nonetheless - barring some unforeseen delay.
Another, smaller mystery is why the Orioles still have Dan Straily in the starting rotation. I know the obvious answer: Because they don't really care about winning games this season and nothing matters, so why not have a guy who's not too great as a placeholder.

Camden Chat: Orioles-Indians series preview: The O's wrap up their road trip
The Cleveland Indians have had a tougher time navigating the AL Central this season thanks to the presence of the surging Minnesota Twins at the top of the division. The Orioles have first-hand experience with just how good those Twins have been this year.
Cleveland's struggles have largely been a result of a fledgling offense. They rank in the bottom five of the league in home runs (41), ISO (.133), batting average (.221), slugging percentage (.355), wOBA (.287) and wRC+ (74).
Some of the surprising lowlights include Jose Ramirez, his .
Baltimore Sun: Orioles, Indians meet in series between teams struggling with runners in scoring position
In consecutive at-bat across separate games of Wednesday's doubleheader against the New York Yankees, Orioles outfielder Joey Rickard doubled with two outs. Both times, the extra-base hit proved fruitless.
Given a chance to drive in a run himself with the bases loaded and the Orioles down a run, Rickard grounded out amid a day Baltimore went 0-for-13 with runners in scoring position, a continuation of a season-long struggle in such situations.
The Orioles begin their four-game series at the Cleveland Indians last in the American League with a .
