Game 63: Red Sox (28-35) at Orioles (32-30), 7:05 PM ET

Brandon Workman faces Chris Tillman tonight in Baltimore.

Hoping to follow Bud Norris's great performance with one of his own, Chris Tillman takes the hill for the second game in the series. He has not looked sharp recently, but neither have the Red Sox, so it may be a case of an irresistable force meeting an immovable object.

The only thing I really know about Brandon Workman is that, as a reliever, he batted for himself in the ninth inning of Game 3 in last year's World Series, when the score was tied at 4. It was his first professional at-bat; unfortunately, he won't get a similar chance tonight.
