Check out thoughts on today's lineups from our game preview by Tyler Young.
After looking approximately like they would never win another game for a while there, the Orioles have now won two in a row, including an unlikely triumph in a game started by Royals flamethrower Yordano Ventura. There's not much relief to be found today, with Danny Duffy starting for Kansas City. We know how terrible the Orioles are against soft-tossing lefties, so maybe they'll do better against a hard-throwing one?
