The O's look to stay above .500 at home as they go into this series with a home record of 29-28. If I were a betting lady, I'd bet they will not be successful. Actually I am a betting lady, but I wouldn't bet against the Orioles. I wouldn't be FOR them either. I mostly bet on black 33.
Chris Tillman makes his fourth major league start after pitching just a heck of a game in Toronto last weekend. Tillman went 6.2 innings allowing just 2 ER on 4 H. The Orioles lost the game 3-2. Nothing makes me happier than seeing Tillman's name in the lineup, except maybe seeing Brian Matusz's.
Jered Weaver takes the ball for the Angels. Weaver is having a good year and has been the anchor of the Angels staff in 2009. He does give up runs, he's not unhittable by any means. He also is a fan of giving up the HR so hopefully the offense will be able to break out a bit and get Chris some run support.
