Red Sox vs. Orioles line: O hello, Baltimore

New, 5 comments

We’re just one win away from a bona fide winning streak, and the Orioles are a sight for sore eyes.

The Red Sox (4-9) won a baseball game last night and will look to do the same tonight when they face the Baltimore Orioles (5-8) at Fenway Park (7:10 p.m., NESN). Go Sox!

There is little to say except tonight except that Eduardo Rodriguez should stop going to 3-2 counts both in general and against this Orioles lineup, which is bad. At least Chris Davis has the night off from his historically bad streak to the season, though I’d love to have seen E-Rod walk him three times. Anyhow the Sox swap out Dustin Pedroia for Eduardo Núñez and Blake Swihart for Christian Vázquez in what’s the Official Batting Order Against Righties, as it appears below:
