Game 41: Orioles (22-18) @ Royals (20-21), 7:10

The Orioles go for their third straight victory in Kansas City on Saturday night. Bud Norris takes the ball for the O's, while O's hitters will face off against Danny Duffy.

Lorde performed at the Preakness back in Baltimore this afternoon, so it's fitting that the Orioles are in Kansas City this weekend. We will never be Royals, unless we get traded for David Lough.

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?
