It's game 3 of a 4-game set against a real, live MLB team. The good guys took game 1, and it's arguable they gave away game 2.
Trachsel's been as dependable as anyone on the O's staff this year, but a quick glance at Joe Saunders' numbers tells you this is a formidable task.
Hopefully, the Angels' fan base will be staying home en masse to watch Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals on NBC at 8 p.m., where the Anaheim Ducks play in Ottowa already leading 2-0. So, without the tens of thousands of Ducks/Angels fans in attendance, the O's stand a greater chance of winning, right?
OK, I'm reaching. But go Ducks. And go O's!
