Game Notes:

Beckett goes for his 5th win in April. Don't let Loewen's ERA fool you, his WHIP is a robust 1.914, and he's walking one batter per inning. Crisp out of the lineup again. I smell a retroactive 15-day DL announcement later today or tomorrow. The Orioles lineup gets a big boost with the return of Ramon Hernandez(.822 OPS last season) to the everyday lineup.

O's Against Beckett:

Jay Payton is 5 for 11, all singles. Tejada is 1 for 3 with a HR

Sox Against Loewen:

Red-hot Lowell is 2 for 6 with a BB. Manny is 3 for 4 with a HR, a BB, and 3 RBIs. Tek is 2 for 3. Wily is 3 for 7 with a BB and 3 Ks.
