Scouting Report from mlb.com:
Red Sox: Making his first Major League appearance since June 19, Matsuzaka worked six shutout innings of three-hit ball last Tuesday in a victory over the Angels at Fenway Park. The 29-year-old right-hander did not allow a hit through four frames and fanned five during the 93-pitch outing. Dice-K is 2-1 with a 4.72 ERA in five career starts against the Orioles.
God know who the Orioles are throwing out there today. I wrote this last Wednesday night. Is Pedro still available?
... and a cut-and-paste from the SBN Preview (see link below):
Today, Baltimore will pin its hopes on rookie right-hander Jason Berken, who has won his last three decisions and is unbeaten in his last five starts. Berken's most recent win came on Tuesday against Tampa Bay, as he allowed five runs and seven hits in 6 1/3 frames to improve to 5-11 to go along with a 6.08 ERA. Berken is 0-2 in his three starts against the Red Sox this season and has surrendered 13 earned runs in 11 2/3 innings of those outings.
