Today's game

Orioles at Rays, 1:40 p.m.

RHP Scott Feldman (5-4, 3.51 ERA) vs. LHP Enny Romero (0-0, 0.00 ERA)

Key matchup

After spending most of the season at Double-A Montgomery, Romero, 22, threw eight scoreless innings against Triple-A Norfolk earlier this month. Romero is a hard-throwing lefty who reportedly has made progress with his off-speed pitches.
