The Orioles get a nice come from behind win yesterday (though it shouldn't have been that way in the first place) and have the opportunity for a sweet against the Red Sox today (though it's still a win, can't believe I'm complaining). They face Jon Lester and a win won't come easily.
A solid lineup that has its strong spots and its weak spots. Ellsbury does a great job in the leadoff spot, and all the way through J.D. Drew the Red Sox are solid. But after that, their final three are shaky. Saltalamacchia hasn't lived up to his former top prospect status yet, and Crawford is not off to the start the Red Sox asked for at all.
Lester has been very good this season, as expected. Very good strikeout rate, the O's are going to have his pitch count today if they want to get on base (need more than the amount of walks yesterday... won't even mention how many it was). Nice high GB%, and though his HR/FB% is high, all those homers came in his first start in Texas. However, if the O's can get it up, they might be able to get some home runs.
