Game 82: Rangers (37-44) @ Orioles (42-39), 7:05

It's the first of five games without Manny Machado. Chris Davis is at third base. Joe Saunders starts for the other team. Will the Orioles continue their journey back towards the .500 record they seem determined to prove they deserve?

The problem with the Orioles winning a couple of dramatic games and going on a little hot streak, like they did in the White Sox series, is that they then have to remind us that they're a .500 team by doing something like blowing three of four against the last place Rays.

Now, it's the fourth place Rangers. Worse, it's Joe Saunders. And also Ubaldo Jimenez. Well, good luck with Chris Davis at third base, guys. Maybe you can score seven runs again, only without giving up 12 runs.
