Orioles vs Red Sox lineups and game preview for 9/27

Winslow Townson

It's the last series of the season. The Orioles can't dash the Red Sox hopes like they did a few seasons ago, but they can try and screw them out of home field advantage in the playoffs. So...that's something?

Starting Pitchers

Clay Buchholz is pitching for the Red Sox, so get ready to avert your eyes. He might be the ugliest Red Sock, and that is saying something. He was having an outstanding season before going on the disabled list in mid-June, pitching to 1.71 ERA. He's made three starts since he returned and has allowed just two earned runs to actually lower his ERA to 1.60 on the season. Oof.

Scott Feldman will try to outpitch Buchholz tonight. He has faced the Red Sox twice this season and has pitched 5 innings in each. In one he gave up four runs. In the other he gave up just two runs but walked six. That is not a typo.
