TONIGHT’S GAME:

Baltimore Orioles (73-64) vs. Cleveland Indians (73-65), Progressive Field, 7:05 p.m.

STARTING PITCHERS:

Zach Britton (2-3, 4.56) vs. Zach McAllister (7-8, 3.81)

KEYS TO THE GAME:

Britton can’t walk many. Walks have done him in in the past, and they were crucial against Chris Tillman on Tuesday night.

The Orioles scored their runs on a three-run home run by Nate McLouth in the ninth inning. They must score more runs earlier.

NEWS AND NOTES:

The Orioles are now 15-25 in one-run games, and have lost nine of their last 10 one-run games. Last year, they were 29-9.

Chris Davis is 1-for-15.

Nick Swisher is 4-for-12 with four walks against Britton.
