Orioles on deck: What to watch Friday at Twins, plus lineups, broadcast info and more

Orioles (24-62) vs. Twins (36-48)

Where: Target Field, Minneapolis


First pitch: 8:10 p.m.

TV/Radio: MASN2/105.7 The Fan


Starting pitchers: Orioles RHP Dylan Bundy (6-7, 3.75 ERA) vs. Twins RHP Lance Lynn (5-7, 5.49 ERA)

What to watch

1. Bundy’s return. Bundy will make his first start since June 23 after going on the disabled list with a sprained left ankle. He finished June with a 1.98 ERA, 25 strikeouts and an opponent batting average of just .186 in four starts. Can he keep it up in July?

2. Can Lynn bounce back? Lynn lasted just 1 2/3 innings against the Cubs on Sunday, giving up seven runs on three walks and five hits in an 11-10 loss. He even allowed a three-run homer by Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Jon Lester. Lynn had a 2.83 ERA in June, but the Twins have lost four of his past five starts.

3. Davis alone at the top? Chris Davis tied the Orioles’ all-time strikeout record Thursday night with his 1,305th K. His next strikeout will put him above Cal Ripken Jr. on the list.
