Sorry, no promises of free beer and boobies today. I have graduation for my high school tonight, so I have to actually get in a tie and suit and walk in with the rest of the faculty and generally act like an adult. Get yer free boobies n' beer somewhere else, guys. Tonight's all business.

Here's the scouting report, courtesy of MLB.com:

Scouting Report:

Orioles: Burres returned to the rotation on Saturday after missing his last scheduled start due to an off-day and pitched a and career-high six innings in a three-hit win over Oakland. He retired the first 10 A's to step to the plate, and Nick Swisher's solo home run in the fourth inning was the only run Burres allowed. His second win of the season was his best performance in three starts since replacing injured Adam Loewen in the starting rotation.

Angels: Using his wide assortment of pitches, including a killer splitter, Escobar tamed the Bronx Bombers on Saturday for seven innings, holding them to one earned run on six hits and one walk while striking out eight. Nearly unhittable in his previous outing at home against the Dodgers -- allowing no runs on three hits over eight innings -- Escobar now has a streak of 21 consecutive scoreless frames at Angel Stadium. He's 12-4 with nine saves and a 3.76 ERA in 33 career games against Baltimore.
