Game 49: Orioles (25-23) @ Brewers (30-21), 2:10 pm

Bizarro Chris Davis. He spells it with a K, see. - Rob Tringali

The Orioles are in the midwest for some more interleague play. That means pitchers batting, which is stupid.

The Milwaukee Brewers have 30 wins, which is second best in baseball. They've been a surprise team, for sure, but their record so far reminds me a little bit of the 2013 Orioles. The Brew Crew ended April with a 20-8 record, since then have gone 10-13. They have plenty of time to prove that May is the aberration and not April, of course, but I take hope where I can find it.

The Brewers have a few good hitters, but overall they are scoring runs at just a bit under the NL average (3.9 per game vs 3.95). So far they've made up for it with their pitching, which is giving up just 3.67 runs per game.

Chris Tillman faces Kyle Lohse today, and your guess is as good as mine as to which Tillman we'll see. To read about today's pitching match ups and more on the series, be sure to read Alex's series preview, published earlier today.

Since 1970 when the Milwaukee Brewers became a team (previously they were the Seattle Pilots), the Orioles hold a 219-161 record against them. Of course, most of those games came when the Brewers and Orioles were both in the American League. Since the Brewers moved to the National League after the 1997 season, the teams have tied with a 3-3 record. The Orioles last faced them in 2008 in games that were started by Radhames Liz, Daniel Cabrera, and Garrett Olson. The Orioles won just one game in that series, shockingly.

I see that Mark Reynolds is playing third base today. I'm no baseball coach, but I suggest that the Orioles do their best to hit it towards him.

Sadly, due to Chris Davis being on paternity leave, we won't get to see the highly anticipated face of of C/Khris Davises.
