The Boston Red Sox have 92 wins with 11 games to go. They pitch well, they hit well, and they're all ugly. Luckily for the Orioles, tonight they get to face Ryan Dempster, who is easily the worst pitcher in their rotation. He as an ERA of 4.70, FIP of 4.67, WHIP of 1.463, and ERA+ of 88.

Dempster has faced the Orioles three times this season with these pitching lines:

Date Tm Opp Rslt Inngs Dec IP H R ER BB SO HR Pit

For the Orioles is Scott Feldman. If you didn't want to see his numbers against the Yankees last week then you REALLY don't want to see his numbers against current Red Sox (here it is if you can't resist).
