Orioles-Mariners Preview (The Associated Press)

The Baltimore Orioles' offense is sputtering, and that can't be very comforting to Wei-Yin Chen. Facing Hisashi Iwakuma may only increase the burden on Chen. While the Orioles try to solve their recent funk at the plate against Iwakuma, Chen looks to win a career-high fourth straight start in the opener of a four-game series with the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field on Thursday night. Baltimore (55-45) leads the AL East by three games, but its lineup will likely need to show some improvement if that gap is going to widen.

Padres-Cubs Preview (The Associated Press)

As the San Diego Padres continue to build for the future, Tyson Ross remains a big part of the process. Hoping for some much-needed run support, the All-Star right-hander tries to win consecutive starts for the first time in two months Thursday night against the Chicago Cubs. He's 2-6 over his last nine starts as San Diego (44-56) has backed him with 10 runs, with half of them coming Saturday when he gave up four hits in seven innings of a 6-0 victory over the New York Mets. He's lost three straight road starts and the Padres have dropped his last four, totaling two runs in those games.

The idea of Colon tossing a perfect game never left McClendon's mind until Robinson Cano's two-out single in the seventh inning. Colon came within seven outs of a perfect game, giving up a single to Robinson Cano with two outs in the seventh inning, and the New York Mets held off a late rally to beat the Mariners 3-2 on Wednesday. Colon turned an applauded as the ball bounced to left fielder Eric Young Jr., knowing his shot at throwing the first perfect game in Mets' history was gone.
