Matchup: Fielding

<b>Rangers: </b> Only three AL teams have committed fewer errors this season, thanks in part to third baseman Beltre, one of the best in the business. He routinely gets to balls in the hot corner than others can't touch. The same can be said for shortstop Elvis Andrus, who makes his share of errors but has tremendous range.<br>
<br>
<b>Orioles: </b> Statistically, it's not a strong group (fifth most errors in the AL). But many of those errors came before Manny Machado stabilized third base, Nate McLouth improved left field and Mark Reynolds started playing tremendous defense at first. Their up the middle D is as good as any in baseball, but losing Gold Glover Nick Markakis (broken thumb) in right field hurts.<br>

<b>EDGE: </b>  Rangers, slightly
