Friday night Orioles game thread: vs Royals, 7:05

The Orioles start a weekend series against the second-worst team in baseball. What could go wrong?

It’s City Connect night!

The Orioles are back home after a 3-3 road trip and could really use a convincing win tonight. With Tyler Wells on the mound against the Royals, they just might get it. I’d love nothing more than a lopsided win as the two teams battle it out on Apple TV in front of a national audience.

Let’s go O’s!
