Chris Smith (0-2, 5.26) takes the hill in this first of a three-game series at Camden Yards. Wade Miley (6-19, 5.21) and Chris Smith match up for the second time this year, the first being August 10th when Miley notched the win. In that series the A’s and Orioles split the four games.
Baltimore’s Manny Machado has the hottest bat right now, hitting three home runs, the third as a walk-off grand slam, to become the 13th player ever to hit three homers in one game with the final being a walk-off. He is also the first Oriole, and only the 10th player, to hit three grand slams in one calendar month!
