What to watch during today's Orioles-Twins game.

Orioles (19-12) vs. Minnesota Twins (8-24)

Where: Target Field

First pitch: 1:10 p.m.

TV/Radio: MASN/105.7 The Fan

Starting pitchers: Orioles RHP Tyler Wilson (1-1, 3.04 ERA) vs. Twins RHP Phil Hughes (1-5, 5.85 ERA)

What to watch

1. Jonesin' for production. Before Adam Jones homered and drove in three runs Tuesday night to extend his hitting streak to three, the All-Star center fielder was batting .200/.269/.274. The question is whether this is the start of something for Jones or just a rare pop of production in a season of struggles to this point. Will Jones have another big day this afternoon to help the Orioles leave Minnesota with a sweep?

2. Who needs routines. Tyler Wilson's four starts this season have come on three days' rest, four days' rest, five days' rest and now six days' rest. He was already on an unpredictable schedule as a long reliever to start the season and says he doesn't mind. But will the latest change have a negative effect coming off his first quality start of 2016?

3. Four pack. The Orioles have now won three in a row for the second time since their 7-0 start to the season to improve to 12-12 since. Can they keep the streak going and win their fourth straight for their longest streak since the best start in team history?
