The Orioles take on the last place Red Sox again on Saturday afternoon. Bud Norris starts for the O's, with Felix Doubront starting for the Red Sox.

Delmon Young in left field is replaced by Nelson Cruz in left field. This is probably not the last time this will happen over the course of the season. Other than that switch, the lineup looks much the same as the one that scored eight runs last night. Why mess with what just worked, right? Of course, today's Red Sox starter, Felix Doubront, is a different challenge, and with the weather about 15 degrees warmer than last night, external conditions affecting the game will be much different as well.

The Orioles scored three runs in 5.1 innings the last time they faced Doubront, which was the third game of this season.

Bud Norris will have to navigate a lefty-packed lineup yet again. This will not be an unusual occurrence for him. There are five lefties and one switch-hitter in the starting Red Sox lineup. The Blue Jays packed in the lefties and it didn't help them very much in Bud's last start, but these Red Sox are probably better hitters than those lefties. That will just make beating them all the sweeter.
