I'd never heard of McClung until I looked him up, and folks, we maybe running into a show stopper here. From Yahoo! Sports:

A former American Leaguer, Seth McClung (4-3, 3.94) starts against the Orioles for the sixth time in his career. In his first five starts - all with Tampa Bay - McClung went 3-2 with a 6.39 ERA, walking 24 in 25 1-3 innings.

The right-hander has pitched much better since moving from a long relief role into the rotation for Milwaukee, going 3-2 with a 4.23 ERA in five starts. He limited Minnesota to two runs and four hits over six innings Sunday in a 4-2 victory.

McClung has pitched six innings in each of his last three starts, giving up a total of five earned runs with 13 strikeouts against one walk.

If the Orioles can beat this kid, they've done something. This ain't no "Latest Rookie We Turn Into Cy Young" game here - this is a good pitcher who's put up Quality Starts in his last 3 outings.

One last note: With a crowd of about 30,000 today, 1 million fans will have seen the Orioles play this year. And most still think Terry Crowley needs to be replaced.

Let's Go O's!
