What to watch

1. Do it again. The Orioles ended their club-record road losing streak and will be looking to make up some ground in the division by taking another one or two in Boston.

2. Do it again, part 2. Dylan Bundy said he figured out what was going wrong during his nightmarish three-start slump. He showed he meant it with seven scoreless, two-hit innings in Sunday’s win over the Rays. Showing he can build on that with a repeat performance would be huge for his confidence.

3. Porcello a good matchup. Rick Porcello comes into Saturday with a 4.88 career ERA against the Orioles, having allowed 19 homers in 110 2/3 innings over 18 head-to-head starts. And the Orioles could be catching the former Cy Young Award winner at a good time — he has allowed five runs in each of his past two starts (11 1/3 innings total) to jump his ERA from 2.14 to 3.28.
