Game 39: Orioles (18-20) @ Rays (23-16), 1:40pm EDT

Yesterday, I mocked the Orioles relentlessly in this space, intimating that there was little chance of them being competitive. They responded with a phenomenal performance with unheralded types such as Jake Fox and Mark Reynolds providing offense, and 3E1N having a spectacular outing.

So like Nuke LaLoosh avoiding sex with Annie, I'm not going to mess with a streak.

Although primarily used as a reliever this year, Andy Sonnanstine has a 2.87 ERA and a WHIP of 1.27. He will probably be masterful today.

Jake Arrieta is 0-1 lifetime versus Tampa Bay, with a 6.35 ERA. He will probably suck today.

Matt Wieters, who will be back in the lineup, is hitting .227 on the road this year. He will probably suck as well today.*

The Orioles are 3-9 in series finales, and 1-4 in series finales on the road. They will probably suck balls a lot today.

Winner of this game takes a 1-game lead in the season series.

Ummm, Go Orioles?
