Series: O's @ Red Sox (April 17th - 20th)

Fenway Park

Game 1: Friday, April 17th, 2009
First Pitch: 7:05pm (EST)
Probable Starters: Jeremy Guthrie (2-0, 2.25), RHP (Orioles) / Brad Penny (1-0, 4.50), RHP (Sox)

Orioles: Guthrie threw six shutout innings in his last start and is 2-0 for the first time in his brief career. The right-hander has completed six innings in each of his last two starts, while Baltimore's other pitchers have yet to go that far. Guthrie has held opponents to a .261 batting average this year and has seemingly seen his hard-luck trend from last season reverse itself.

Red Sox: Penny had a successful debut for the Red Sox, scattering five hits and three runs over six innings against the Angels. He walked two in that game. This will be his second career start at Fenway Park, and first since 2003. Pitching for the Marlins at the time, Penny took the loss, giving up nine hits and nine runs over five innings. This will be Penny's first career start against the Orioles.

Game 2: Saturday, April 18th, 2009
First Pitch: 7:05pm (EST)
Probable Starters: Adam Eaton (0-1, 9.00), RHP (Orioles) / Josh Beckett (1-1, 3.46), RHP (Sox)

Orioles: Eaton got lit up for eight hits and four earned runs in his season debut, which came on an unwieldy 10 days' rest. The right-hander is expected to take a normal rotation turn Saturday in Boston, and he'll hope to rebound from some encouraging work toward the end of his debut. Eaton allowed all four runs in the second inning of his first start but fired two scoreless innings after that. The veteran was spent by that point, though, and was unable to and pitch deeper into the game.

Red Sox: After pitching a gem on Opening Day, Beckett had mixed results in his last start, giving up eight hits and four runs over six innings in a loss to the Angels. Beckett threw 103 pitches in that game, 61 for strikes. This will be Beckett's 10th career start against the Orioles. In the previous nine, he is 4-2 with a 3.73 ERA. Beckett has five walks and 15 strikeouts over his first two starts.

Game 3: Sunday, April 19th, 2009
First Pitch: 1:35pm (EST)
Probable Starters: Koji Uehara (2-0, 7.20), RHP (Orioles) / Jon Lester (0-2, 9.00), LHP (Sox)

Orioles: Uehara has won each of his first two starts despite not going farther than five innings in either of them. The right-hander allowed seven earned runs in his last outing, which was part of a demolition derby three-game series against the Rangers. Uehara, an extreme strike-thrower, has had problems gripping the American baseball in each of his first two big-league starts. Still, the rookie is one of Baltimore's most experienced starters and will need to pile up lots of innings this season.

Red Sox: Lester has opened the season in a funk, being belted around for 18 hits and 11 runs in losses to the Rays and Athletics. The lefty was the victim of a five-run second inning in his performance against Oakland. In that contest, he walked none and struck out five. Perhaps facing the Orioles will cure what ails Lester. Lester is 6-0 with a 2.81 ERA in eight career starts against Baltimore.

I think we'll go 2-2. I will say this, The Red Sox lineup isn't as tough as it once was.

I think a split would be great in this series. Standing toe-to-toe with all the big boys in the AL East and coming out with a winning record would be quite a feat for the young season.

I'm guessing that Beckett's 5 game suspension has been appealed and he'll start as scheduled.

BTW - I caught the final game of the Norfolk Tides down here in Charlotte last night. They ended up drubbing the Charlotte Knights 10-0.

I was sitting there hyping up Matt Wieters to a buddy of mine all week before we went to the game. Wouldn't you know, in his very 1st AB, he hit a booming opposite field shot (he was betting lefty against the righty) that cleared both the fence and green-monster sized billboards beyond the fence.

He's gonna be a player ... can't wait until he gets the call. The O's officially gained the extra year of eligibility so that he can be called up at anytime now.

Nick the Stick with the Grand Slam. Nice!!!!!

O's score 7 in the 2nd as Penny completely lost the strike zone (although he found it with Nick at the plate :D)

Guthrie didn't fare much better in the bottom of the 2nd. Now, 7-4 O's. Looks like we'll need to keep racking up runs on the scoreboard to cover up for the pitching staff (what else is new).

Figures that the one game in the series thus far where our pitching has been great, our offense has been horrible.

Also, Lester is the real deal.

Today's game will probably get canned b/c of the rain. At least our pitching hasn't been that bad this series, but its still not very good.

Eaton needs to be DFA.
