Doubront has pitched well against the Orioles, and he allowed just one run in seven innings in their meeting Sunday. Chris Davis has the best numbers against him, going 2-for-5 with a double this season (3-for-8 over their careers).
Other games that matter
Yankees (Pettitte) at Blue Jays (Romero), 1:07 p.m.
There is still, of course, a very realistic chance of the Orioles winning the division, and there's still the matter of sorting out homefield advanatage in the wild-card playoff.
But those are your bare-bones clinching scenarios for now. That should be enough to chew on until the next round of games clears up the picture a little more.
Also, you'll note that the White Sox have dropped off the wild-card standings above. If they don't catch the Tigers and win the AL Central (they're one game back), then they're out.
And finally, there's this: The Orioles are still within shouting distance to earn homefield advantage throughout the entire American League playoffs. With five games to play, they're just two behind the Rangers for the best record in the AL.
