All i want for Fathers day is for the Orioles to send the Red Sox home with their tail tucked between their legs. The series started off well enough, winning the first game of a four game set. As Scott always says “You cant sweep a team if you don’t win the first one.” Chris Davis with a bloop single into left field scored Markakis and the Orioles get an extra innings victory.
Coming up tonight the Orioles will face Ryan Dempster who has been pretty good as of late. The Orioles will throw Chris Tillman tonight against Dempster. Tillman has been our best pitcher so far, especially on the road. On Saturday the Orioles will send good ole Sweaty Freddy to the mound. Freddy Garcia is either Hit or Miss, but the good news is that his facing John Lackey. It could be free baseball night at the yard. On Sunday, Miguel Gonzalez will face Jon Lester, and the Orioles have had their troubles with Lester in the past, but I believe they have hit him better the past two years. Getting all 4 games is a lot to ask for, so ill settle for 3 out of 4.
