Orioles look to open homestand with win vs. Cubs

It's not a large sample size for these interleague opponents, but the Baltimore Orioles have pretty much had their way with the Chicago Cubs this season.

Now there's a final meeting between the teams set for Thursday afternoon in Baltimore.

This Chicago team is carrying a different vibe now than earlier in the season. The Cubs have won five of their last seven games, with a newcomer making a big impact.
