Baltimore starter Wei-Yin Chen has pitched well of late, and has a good shot against an Indians team hobbled by injuries, mediocrity, and inexperience. The Orioles find themselves hobbled as well, once again lacking the services of star 3B Manny Machado. The also have the distinct disadvantage of facing Corey Kluber, who doesn't care if any of these people live or die.
