Orioles @ Astros Game 3

Weird to not be leaving this place after the third game as the Orioles will play a fourth game of the wraparound series on Sunday. The O’s have a season-high four game losing streak while the Astros have won seven in a row for the first time since 2010.

*Not much in the way of pre game news, though Tommy Hunter will throw his first bullpen on Sunday as he continues to progress favorably in rehab from a groin strain. Manager Buck Showalter said Hunter would probably need two rehab games and could be eligible on June 5, which is the first day he could come off the DL.

*Catcher Matt Wieters feels good a day after he tested his elbow for the first time in three weeks.

*Outfielder Nolan Reimold (neck) continues to play in extended spring games and Showalter said Brady Anderson spoke with him last night and he heard the conversation.

“Said it’s the best he’s felt in a long, long time,” Showalter said. “Really encouraging.”

*The Orioles will adjust their starting rotation following Monday’s off day, with how Chris Tillman feels after today’s start factoring in.
