Here we go. Starting tonight the O's have nine straight games against the Yankees and Red Sox before the second round of interleague play begins and the already horrid hitting Orioles will get to face the likes of Tim Lincecum and Stephen Strasburg. Hooray!

The Orioles are 1-5 against the Yankees this year and have been outscored 31-15. Brian Matusz faces Javier Vazquez tonight with Brad Bergesen vs. Phil Hughes tomorrow and Kevin Millwood vs. CC Sabathia on Thursday. It's probably going to be pretty ugly, not that you don't already know that.

2010 - Brian Matusz 2-5 5.60 1.63 45 20

2010 - Javier Vazquez 3-5 6.86 1.62 36 22


Orioles: Corey Patterson (LF), Miguel Tejada (3B), Nick Markakis (RF), Ty Wigginton (1B), Luke Scott (DH), Matt Wieters (C), Adam Jones (CF), Julio Lugo (2B), Cesar Izturis (SS)

Yankees: Derek Jeter (SS), Nick Swisher (RF), Mark Teixeira (1B), Alex Rodriguez (3B), Robinson Cano (2B), Marcus Thames (DH), Fransisco Cervelli (C), Curtis Granderson (CF), Kevin Russo (um, who? LF)

Let's Go O's!

Oh, one more thing. Y'all might have noticed over the weekend that a few different people started posting game recaps (and on the front page as opposed to a Fan Post). Eat More Esskay, twistedlogic, and WestcoastO'sfan have come on board with us to help out with the recaps, which is awesome. Those of you who have been around for awhile remember when lil' Westie was just a kid, the original BSF you might say. And now look at him, all grown up. Awww.
