Starting pitchers: Orioles RHP Gabriel Ynoa (1-0, 3.68 ERA) vs. Indians RHP Josh Tomlin (8-9, 5.20)

What to watch

1. Still streaking. The Orioles came out flat and finished with four hits in letting the Indians extend their franchise-record winning streak to 16 games on Friday night. That dropped the Orioles to three games behind the Twins for the second wild-card spot. See if the Birds can bounce back this afternoon.

2. A pair of firsts. Gabriel Ynoa makes his first start as an Oriole, having been shifted into the rotation this time around in Chris Tillman's spot. Tillman had a 7.98 ERA in his three starts back in the rotation. Ynoa had a 2.72 ERA in his final six starts with Triple-A Norfolk. In addition, rookie Austin Hays makes his first start in right field. He was called up this week.

3. Trey on track. Rookie Trey Mancini accounted for two of the Orioles' four hits Friday and is batting .348 with five extra-base hits and 11 RBIs over his past 17 games. Can he stay rolling in Cleveland?
