Starting pitchers: Orioles RHP Alex Cobb (0-5, 7.06 ERA) vs. Red Sox LHP Drew Pomeranz (1-1, 5.47 ERA)
What to watch
1. The streak. The Orioles have lost 13 straight on the road, matching the longest such streak in club history, which took place during the team’s 0-21 start in 1988. Can the Orioles put a stop to it at Fenway Park?
2. Seeking quality Cobb. Alex Cobb has allowed three earned runs or fewer in each of his past three starts as he starts to pitch like himself again. He had two straight quality starts before giving up four runs (three earned) in 5 2/3 innings last time out.
3. Machado stays hot. Manny Machado leads the majors in homers (14) and RBIs (40) after hitting a long ball Thursday. Over his past seven games, Machado has hit five homers and driven in 13 runs.
