Tommy Hunter takes the mound today for the Orioles as they try to sweep the Red Sox and come home with a 5-1 record on the road trip. Even if they lose they'll come home with a 4-2 road trip, which is pretty great considering they went into New York and Boston. In Hunter's last few starts he's been luckier than good. I'd prefer he pitch better today, but I will also take lucky.
Opposing Hunter is Clay Buchholz, who is not having a good year. He has made five starts on the season and has yet to allow less than five runs. Ouch. Buccholz has historically been quite good against the Orioles but I've learned that this year things like that don't really matter.
