It might be the last day this year that we get more than one game in a day.

The early game, at 4:00 Eastern is Orioles @ Royals. The Orioles need this one or they are out.

Orioles starter Miguel Gonzales was 10-9 with a 3.23 ERA, they need a great start out of him.

Royals starter Jason Vargas was 11-10 with a 3.71 ERA.
