Game time is 1:35 on WNUV and RSN.
John Maine throws five innings of two-hit ball, the bullpen holds the lead, and the O's escape with a 1-0 win. How about that?
Today's game features Rafael Palmeiro's return to the lineup, and Perlozzo has him hitting sixth, and has Sosa hitting seventh.
I don't know much about Dustin McGowan. He's 23 and is making his fourth major league start. With Bedard on the hill, we have a solid shot at winning our seconds straight series. Let's go, O's!
