Game 129: Athletics (72-56) @ Orioles (69-59), 1:35

New, comments

In the rubber game of their series against the Athletics on Sunday, the Orioles look to pull back within two games of the wild card. Scott Feldman starts for the Orioles against Sonny Gray of the A's.

Win the series and keep hope alive for a while longer. Lose the game today and thus the series and get a little closer to turning out the lights. Will it be a day full of wasted opportunities or no opportunities at all? Will they actually manage to capitalize on enough scoring chances?

As Stacey wrote earlier, the original starter today was going to be Miguel Gonzalez, but now it's going to be Scott Feldman. This makes two consecutive Sundays that I will have gone to the Orioles game to see a Feldman start. Not exactly how they drew it up.

Feldman can't pitch much better than Chris Tillman did yesterday. He probably won't pitch as good, either. The O's bats can't be much worse. They should be better and will hopefully be better enough to win the game.
