It's Norris vs. Gallardo as the O's try to take the rubber match of a three game series. Last night's hero is tonight's starting pitcher.

Last night is right up there with some of the most embarrassing losses in O's history. It's right next to the 30 to 3 drubbing at the hands of the Rangers. It even competes with the Miguel Cabrera single that came off of the "intentional ball" thrown by Todd Williams.

Ok, let's calm down. It really wasn't as bad as those. Some could say the O's didn't even deserve to be in that game last night. Let's also remember that it was T.J. McFarland who was pitching and Yovani Gallardo, who hit a walk off double last night if you missed it, is a very good hitting pitcher. He has 12 home runs in his career.

A solid start from Bud Norris and an Orioles victory could go a long way to helping us forget it even happened. It would mean the black and orange had won a series over one of the best teams in baseball. If anyone can do it, it's Bud. Go get 'em.
