Baltimore Orioles to host Texas Rangers
Second place clubs set for season series in Baltimore
The two American League runners-up will begin a four-game series at Camden Yards tonight when the West Division's Texas Rangers visit the East Division's Baltimore Orioles.
The Rangers managed to reach the World Series for the past two seasons but now find themselves sitting behind Oakland Athletics who are leading the pack.
The Orioles on the other hand haven't had the best of seasons as they sit five games behind front-running Boston Red Sox.
Derek Holland is expected to start for Texas, having gone the last three without defeat. The lefty allowed only six runs in 11 hits in 22 innings against St. Louis, the New York Yankees and Seattle.
Scott Feldman is believed to be coming in for Baltimore to make his second start against his former team.
The 6ft 7" giant began the year with an impressive seven wins in 15 starts for the Chicago Clubs. He was dealt to the Orioles on July 2 as part of a four-player trade, making his debut a day later.
The Hawaiian will hope to help his new side claim their first season series win over the Rangers since 2010 when they won 6-4.
The last two years Texas have largely dominated, taking five from seven games in 2012 and five of six in 2011.
