Guess what tonight is — it’s Trey Mancini bobblehead night at Camden Yards! The Orioles will look to pull ahead in the third game of this four game series against the Rays after losing on Thursday night, 4-3, and after trouncing the Rays last night, 15-5.

We’ll see if the O’s have anything left in their bats against right-hander Ryne Stanek. Yes, the Rays are going the unconventional route with their pitching tonight, as they have been known to do this year, with a starter who is only expected to pitch a couple innings at the most. Stanek last started against the Orioles on May 26, throwing 1.2 perfect innings with three strikeouts.

The Orioles will counter with Kevin Gausman, who has had a forgettable two game stretch most recently. In 9.2 innings in his last two starts combined, he has allowed 10 total runs. In two starts against the Rays this season, he has an 8.10 ERA and 1.90 WHIP. On the plus side, Gausman has a 3.67 ERA in 12 night games this season.
