Gameday Thread: Rays (0-1) at O's (1-0)

                       

Seth McClung, RH                Erik Bedard, LH
 (7-11, 6.59)                    (6-8, 4.00)

Game time is 7:05pm on CSN (Baltimore) and FAX (Florida).

This one looks like it favors the O's at first glance.

The problem is, McClung has owned the Orioles over the course of his career. In seven games (three of which he started) against the birds, he's 3-0. In 27 innings he has given up 2 home runs. His ERA against them is 2.33, his WHIP is a measly 1.19, and the Birds have batted .188 against him.

Ouch.

Weird when a guy is a mediocre pitcher, but feasts on one team. Seth McClung is to the Orioles what Roddy Lopez is to the Bosox.

On the plus side, Bedard has decent stats against the D-Rays (3-2, 3.15 ERA, 2 HR and 37 Ks in 45 innings); and he really tore it up towards the end of spring training, including an 8-strikeout performance against the Marlins in his second-to-last start.

Win this game, and the Orioles will be two games over .500 for the first time since July 27, 2005.
