Starting pitchers: Orioles RHP Alex Cobb (2-8, 7.23 ERA) vs. Marlins LHP Wei-Yin Chen (1-3, 6.13 ERA)

What to watch

1. Number 9. The Orioles have lost eight straight for their longest losing streak since dropping nine in a row in July 2011. They’ve also lost 15 of 17 overall and 10 straight at home, with their last win at Camden Yards coming May 13.

2. Cobb. Things were pointing in the right direction for Alex Cobb with five quality starts in seven outings from May 1 to June 5. Then he stumbled for his worst start of the year — nine earned runs on 11 hits in 3 2/3 innings in a 13-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays six days ago. Before that outing, he was only a couple of solid starts away from bringing his numbers to respectable levels, but his ERA climbed back into the 7.00s with that defeat.

3. Old friend. The Orioles face Wei-Yin Chen for the first time since he left for a five-year, $80 million deal with the Marlins after the 2015 season. It hasn’t gone his way in Miami, as he had a 4.96 ERA in 22 starts in 2016 before being limited to nine games last season because of elbow problems. This season has been the worst of his career, as he’s only once pitched more than 5 1/3 innings and has allowed at least four runs in four of nine starts. The Orioles go with an all-righty lineup to face Chen, meaning no Chris Davis for the fourth straight game.
