Two teams fighting in their respective divisions in the American League start a crucial weekend series as the Cleveland Indians and Baltimore Orioles do battle.
Cleveland sits atop the AL Central, while Baltimore has fallen to 2nd in the AL East after a tough series against New York.
The Indians have started the 2nd half of the season off in solid fashion.
Cleveland has taken 2 of 3 from Minnesota and Kansas City on the road as they continue their RNC roadtrip.
Cleveland’s bats took over in the series finale against the Royals, erupting for 11 runs behind a 6 RBI night for Tyler Naquin.
The Indians continue to be at the center of the trade rumors as they look to upgrade both in the catcher area and in the bullpen.
One thing they don’t need help with is their starting staff. RH Trevor Bauer goes, who right now is the only one that seems to be losing. Bauer has struggled in his last 2 outings, allowing 5 runs to the Yankees and 3 runs to the Twins.
However, his defense did him no favors in the ND against Minnesota.
Bauer has been significantly better on the road than at home, which bodes well for him here on Friday.
Not that they were concerned about the Yankees, but Baltimore had a chance to really put the Yankees chances at the AL East to rest.
However, a tough series saw them lost 3 of 4 as they avoided the sweep on Thursday afternoon with a 4-1 win.
The Orioles now find themselves in 2nd place in the AL East, percentage points behind red hot Boston. To make matters even tougher on them, Toronto has climbed back to within just 1.0 game of the two teams.
Baltimore does return home to a place where they have played extremely well. The O’s have gone 33-14 inside Camden Yards while averaging over 5 runs per game.
Baltimore sends out Dylan Bundy here in the series opener, who is making just his 2nd career MLB start. Bundy lasted just 3.1 innings in his first start against Tampa Bay in a loss.
Bundy will be making his first start at Camden Yards, which doesn’t bode well for him as it plays to a hitters ballpark.
