So last night was fun. Let's do that again. It'll be with a slightly different lineup, which is nothing new for this season. This is their 11th game and their tenth different lineup. I'm not complaining since they're obviously getting results, but it's interesting there's so much shuffling around.
Although it was nice they scored a ton of runs yesterday, it'd be nicer still if they would avoid giving up a ton of runs today. That will largely be in the hands of Yovani Gallardo, who did not look so great last time around. But it's warmer in Texas than it was in Boston, so maybe that will make a difference? 85mph ain't going to work for long, if it works at all. If he's throwing that stuff tonight, it might be the Rangers and not the Orioles who hit five home runs in one game.
The O's could stand to have Matt Wieters and Pedro Alvarez, neither of whom played yesterday, come out of their season-opening slumps. Maybe tonight against Colby Lewis will be the night.
