Today's game features one of the most lopsided Orioles pitching matchups this side of Adam Eaton vs. Zack Greinke. Jason Berken has been a good soldier for the Orioles this year, marching out every five days, being sacrificed as a placeholder until something better comes along.
Mark Buehrle, on the other hand, is in the midst of his tenth consecutive successful year, all with the Chicago White Sox. He's thrown two no-hitters, including a perfect game one month ago today. He's still looking for the first win since that perfect game, though.
If the O's can manage the unlikely win today they'll get their first series victory since the all star break and go into Minnesota at 3-3 on the road trip.
