The Orioles will try to get back to .500 today after last night’s 3-2 loss in Anaheim. They remain 1 ½ games back for the second wild card.
Kevin Gausman is making his team-leading 25th start of the season. He’s 1-1 with a 4.66 ERA in three career starts against the Angels and 0-1 with a 5.11 ERA in two starts in Anaheim over 12 1/3 innings.
Mike Trout is 3-for-8 with a home run against Gausman. Luis Valbuena is 3-for-4 with two home runs.
Gausman will try to extend his streak of quality starts to five. He’s allowed only two runs in his last 27 2/3 innings.
