Tonight’s Game:

Baltimore Orioles (42-35) vs. Cleveland Indians (39-36) 7:05 p.m. Oriole Park

Starting pitchers:

Chris Tillman (8-2, 3.71) vs. Justin Masterson (9-5, 3.48)

Keys to the game:

Tillman, who has won five straight decisions, has become the Orioles’ most dependable starter. The last Oriole to win six straight was Darren O’Day last year.

The Orioles managed a brief ninth-inning rally, but other than two solo home runs, didn’t look sharp offensively. That must change.

News and Notes:

Dylan Bundy will be examined by team orthopedist Dr. John Wilckens for pain in his right forearm.

First-round pick Hunter Harvey and competitive balance pick Josh Hart are in Baltimore for their physicals and official signings.

Masterson is 3-4 with a 5.12 ERA in 13 appearances against the Orioles.

Alexi Casilla is 9-for-26 against Masterson. Danny Valencia is 6-for-16. Nick Markakis is 4-for-22.
