It's Scott Feldman vs Ivan Nova today, a matchup that makes me cringe. Nova hasn't given up more than four runs this season, and four runs happened only three times. Feldman, on the other hand, feels like a mess even when he doesn't give up many runs. He's had success on the scoreboard of late, but he rarely looks sharp.
Perhaps today will be the day that Feldman looks like a shutdown pitcher. Perhaps today will be the day that Ivan Nova gives up four runs or more. Or perhaps Nova will pitch well and the Orioles will hit a bunch of home runs off of the bullpen. It could happen!
Michael Morse has arrived with the team and is on the bench today. Steve Pearce is not listed among the reserves and will be placed on the disabled list with a left wrist injury.
