Red Sox at Orioles lineup (Game 2): What’s cooler than a win a day? Two wins a day

The Sox look to topple the Orioles for the first time since earlier today when they square off tonight at Camden Yards.

MLB: Game One-Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles
Huuuuuuuuugs!
Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The Red Sox (83-35), who just played and shut out the Orioles (35-82) this very afternoon, look to get right back at in the second game of a day-night doubleheader tonight in Baltimore (7:05 p.m., NESN).

About tonight’s game: Hector Velazquez (7-0, 2.64 ERA) will get the spot start against Yefry Ramirez (1-4. 5.66 ERA), who feels like yet another sacrificial lamb out there. At least he doesn’t have to face the A team. The regular guys sitting this one out: Andrew Benintendi, Mitch Moreland and Sandy León.

About this afternoon’s game: Ho-hum, another shutout. David Price was amazing again, Jackie Bradley Jr. hit two homers and Eduardo Nunez swatted one as the Sox rolled, 5-0. Read Matt’s recap here.

Forecast: It still looks like it might rain — 20 percent at gametime — but I think they’ll get this one in.
