Baltimore Orioles offense

“Rain, rain, go away, come again another day”.

The second game of the MASN Cup was rained out last night in DC and will be made up August 4th.

The series returns to the Yard tonight and the starting pitchers will be the same (Bud Norris vs. Doug Fister). The crowd at Camden Yards should show the “fans” of the artists formerly as the Expos what a home ballpark advantage is.

The Blue Jays shut out the Angels 4-0 last night behind 7 strong innings from RA Dickey. That leaves the Orioles 2.5 games clear of the BJays and 4 games of the Yankees who lost in Cleveland (Tanaka).
