Starting pitchers: Orioles RHP Dylan Bundy (1-5, 5.31 ERA) vs. Rays LHP Blake Snell (4-2, 2.40 ERA)

What to watch

1. Break through. Dylan Bundy has endured perhaps the worst stretch of his career with 19 earned runs in nine innings over his past three starts. Bundy said he thinks he can now pinpoint what's been going wrong, and Sunday will bring his first opportunity to show it in an effort to regain his early-season form.

2. Series on the line. The Orioles have a chance to claim their second series win in a row with a win Sunday. The Orioles had won four games in a row before losing Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader, and will be looking to get back in the win column.

3. Schoop-Machado. The middle-of-the-order duo of Manny Machado and Jonathan Schoop have had plenty to do with the Orioles' surge. Before going hitless in the second game of the twin bill, Machado had four homers in nine RBIs over the previois three games. Schoop has five RBIs over his past four games and seven in his six games back from the disabled list.
