Rookie starters to duel as Rangers battle Orioles

Texas Rangers right-hander Glenn Otto and Baltimore Orioles left-hander Zac Lowther have plenty in common heading into their head-to-head matchup Thursday night.

Not only were the 25-year-olds selected in the early rounds of the 2017 draft, but both will be making their fifth major league start in search of their first victory when they take the mound in the opener of the four-game series in Baltimore.

Otto (0-2, 9.37 ERA) had a solid debut on Aug. 27, throwing five shutout innings against the Houston Astros, but he hasn't built on that success, instead taking a major step back in his past two outings.
