Game Thread: Rangers (37-44) @ Orioles (42-39)

The Birds continue their (so far disappointing) 11-game home stand against teams with losing records as the Texas Rangers come to town for a four-game set.

With Manny Machado’s five-game suspension being upheld by MLB, the Birds will be without the 2013 Platinum Glove winner for this entire series as well as Game 1 of the weekend set in Boston.

However, that certainly doesn’t mean that Buck Showalter is ready to let Ryan Flaherty get a few starts at third base. That would just be silly.

Check out the lineup…
