ALCS Game 1 (updated)

There’s rain in the forecast all night, but the Orioles and Royals are hoping to get this one in. Per usual, there will be immediate updates on Twitter on the game’s status with the tarp on the field currently at Camden Yards. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he got a good weather report and feels confident they will get this game in. If not, the makeup game on Sunday would be at 4 p.m. which would be the original Game 2.

The O’s are waiting until after tonight’s game to announce a Game 2 starter, with Showalter deciding between lefty Wei-Yin Chen and righty Bud Norris. Both guys will be available in the bullpen tonight.

Quintin Berry and Ryan Webb are here, along with infielder Chris Davis and they will travel to Kansas City with the team. So will Steve Clevenger, T.J. McFarland and Matt Wieters, with the team still deciding on Ubaldo Jimenez.

Here are the lineups…

Alcides Escobar SS
