The Other Sox Come To Town; Mini-Series at the Yard Wednesday and Thursday

Baltimore continues their homestand as they square off against the AL Central leading Chicago White Sox. They are winners of eight of their past eleven games, and hope to roll into the Yard and continue their winning ways.

To the poster who corrected me this morning - thanks. The Orioles are 2-6 in their past eight games, and while they have been playing some competitive ball, the natural order of baseball is starting to even things out.

Despite that, the Orioles were playing inspired baseball until last night.


Monday: Contreras (0-1, 6.47) vs. Loewen (0-0, 7.45)
Tuesday: Floyd (2-0, 2.03) vs. Guthrie (0-1, 4.34)

The Orioles have a chance to split the series, but the pitching needs to cooperate.

We all know the White Sox can hit, so the Oriole pitching will need to be on top it's game. Contreras is looking every bit his age these days, so perhaps the Orioles can take game one; however, game two may not be as easy as they will face Gavin Floyd who nearly threw a no-hitter in his past start.

The Orioles need Huff to come around, as he has been quiet. It looks Nick Markakis is gettig his stroke, and Jones is starting to show glimpses of brilliance at that plate.

I say we at least split this series.
