The Orioles need to win tonight to take the series, but they have a tough challenge in Masahiro Tanaka

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

It's Kevin Gausman day! Which is exciting. I was hoping the Orioles would be up 2-0 in the series so far, but last night they decided to climb into a time machine and face the version of CC Sabathia that existed in 2007. The Orioles will now have to beat Masahiro Tanaka if they want to win the series. That's a tough draw, but they've knocked aournd good pitchers before.

Did you hear that Hyun Soo Kim is back in the lineup tonight? I'm stoked! Sorry, Joey Rickard. Let's not forget Kim's theme song, which is also his at-bat music at Camden Yards this year. Let's hope we have lots of reasons to sing it starting tonight.
