Baltimore Orioles Head To The Fens


Tonight begins a huge series for the Baltimore Orioles at Fenway Park against Boston – HUGE. In saying that, I don’t mean that Boston is posing a threat to the Orioles in terms of the standings. As things stand right now, they aren’t – although it’s still early enough to where that could change.

However the Orioles are playing a team from whom they should take at least two-of-three – based on recent history and

the standings. However based on how things have gone, they’d be best advised to sweep this series. Tampa and Toronto are getting together this week as well down at Tropicana Field – two teams that have given the Orioles fits over a long period of time. New York is also playing a two-game set with Philadelphia before heading to Houston for four this weekend.

  • The O’s have found ways to actually lose ground at times in the standings while taking two-of-three – last night being no exception. If they only win two games vs. Boston, one of those two will find a way to configure their wins in a way that they gain ground on the Orioles. That’s just kind of how things have gone this year. So it’s important for the O’s to get off to a good start and take care of their business.

    Ubaldo Jimenez is going to try not to get ejected early in the game like he did in his last appearance at Fenway Park as he gets the start tonight for the O’s. The good news is that there’s no Jordan Baker umpiring behind home place. Boston’s Joe Kelly will oppose Jimenez. Game time is set for just after 7 PM.
