Coming off Wednesday’s wild walkoff win, the Rays open a four-game series in Baltimore tonight trying to put a strong finish on their stretch of 21 straight games against teams with losing records.

The Rays are 11-6 thus far, and 14 or 15 wins seemed a reasonable expectation given the matchups and their standing as a team contending for a playoff spot.

Lefty Ryan Yarbrough, who has emerged as a solid No. 2 starter behind Charlie Morton on their injury-depleted pitching staff, will be on the mound tonight, and confident he can keep pitching well.

We should learn more later about the status of infielder Brandon Lowe, who left Wednesday’s rehab game with a left quad strain.

Here is the Rays lineup vs. Orioles righty Asher Wojciechowski:

Sogard 2b

Meadows rf

Pham lf

Choi 1b

d’Arnaud c

Kiermaier cf

Aguilar dh

Duffy 3b

Adames ss

Yarbrough p
