After one rehab start Derrek Lee is back in the lineup tonight for the Birds.
The Orioles need a win tonight to avoid falling to a new season low six games under .500. After winning four in a row to get back to .500 the Orioles have lost six of their last seven their latest coming at the hands of the Toronto Blue Jays last night here at Camden Yards.
Tonight the Orioles will send Jake Arrieta to the mound against the Jay's young power-house Ricky Romero.
The Birds' offense showed a little bit of life last night scoring four runs, with the help of a J.J. Hardy two-run homer, but could not stop the potent homerun bats of the Jays. This time the Jays got a grand slam, with two out and two strikes, from catcher J.P.Arencibia as the Jays went on to an 8-4 win.
Goats for the Orioles last night once again included struggling starters Luke Scott and Nick Markakis. Two players that were expected to be cornerstones for this team are just having atrocious seasons thus far. Luke and Nick combined to go 0-9 last night leaving seven men on base between them.
