Game 154: Orioles (81-72) @ Rays (84-69), 1:05

Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports

They probably want sleep and instead they're playing baseball again Saturday afternoon at the Trop. It's Miguel Gonzalez starting for the Orioles, with Alex Cobb starting for the Rays.

After 18 innings last night, I don't know how they can show up at the stadium today, let alone play, but that's what makes them the professionals. The Orioles, in particular, did not even get into their Tampa hotel rooms until 3:30am Friday morning, then had to go out and play that game. Now they play again. Baltimore Sun writer Dan Connolly tweeted after a mistake-filled 15th that they were "dying on the vine". Here goes nothing.

Lose any of the next three games and it might as well be lights out. Win three in a row and hope still lives.

The Orioles have fortified their bullpen for this game by adding Mike Belfiore and Zach Britton to the roster, if you can call such a move fortifying the bullpen.

It's Miguel Gonzalez against Alex Cobb today. This game is on FOX. Sorry if you're blacked out and getting Giants-Yankees instead.
