Today’s Game:

Baltimore Orioles (84-77) vs. Boston Red Sox (97-64), Oriole Park, 1:35 p.m.

Starting pitchers:

Chris Tillman (16-7, 3.62) vs. Allen Webster (1-2, 9.55)

Keys to the Game:

Tillman tries to end the season strongly against a Red Sox team that will probably use many of its second-line players.

The Orioles will be without Adam Jones, who's out with a sore right wrist. 

News and Notes:

The Orioles have won the season series from Boston for the second straight year.

Brian Roberts hit his eighth home run of the season on Saturday night. He hit seven in 2010-12. Sunday could be Roberts’ final game of his Orioles’ career.

Tillman has won just two of his last 10 starts.

The Red Sox open the division series on Friday against the winner of the wild-card. Cleveland, Tampa Bay and Texas are separated by a game.
