Up next for Tampa Bay Rays: Baltimore Orioles

. Up next

at Orioles

Today-Sunday

What's new: The Orioles (49-85) are still playing better under new manager Buck Showalter, going 17-12. A reason for the resurgence is the young rotation coming into its own. One of those is LHP Brian Matusz, who pitches Sunday. Luke Scott and Ty Wigginton have provided power, with 26 and 20 homers, respectively.

Key stat: Scott is hitting .395 with five homers and eight RBIs in 12 games against Tampa Bay this season.

Connections: Orioles INFs Wigginton and Julio Lugo are former Rays, as is LHP Mark Hendrickson. Rays RHP Lance Cormier is a former Oriole.

Series history: The Rays are 9-3 vs. the Orioles this season and lead the series 109-107. Tampa Bay is 49-58 at Camden Yards, 16-8 since 2008.

    The Heater

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.
