It's Wei-Yin Chen facing off opposite Kevin Correia and the Twins on Saturday afternoon as the Orioles look to win their fourth consecutive game.

Three wins in a row are pretty exciting, but four would be even better. The Orioles have a chance to do just that today against Kevin Correia and the Twins. He has not been good this year, sporting a 7.33 ERA. He's only struck out 12 in 27 innings, so you might think the Orioles big weakness would not be as much of a factor. If you want to stay in first place in the division, these are the guys you need to beat every time out.

The Matt Wieters of our dreams has finally emerged from the cocoon so far this year, but it's a scheduled off day for him today, so don't look for any help there. It's up to the rest of these guys. Every game has a different star, right? Maybe today it will be Wei-Yin Chen, following up on the great performance of his fellow starter Ubaldo Jimenez. The Twins have struggled mightily against lefties to the tune of a .232/.327/.338 batting line. Again, if you want to stay in first place in the division, these are the guys you need to beat every time out.

The O's are one of the few teams worse than the Twins against lefties, but that isn't a problem today since Correia is right-handed.

They had only three streaks of four or more wins last season. They have a chance to get their first against a probably-bad Twins team on Saturday afternoon. Make it happen, fellas.
