It’s an American League showdown on Friday night in Oakland. The Baltimore Orioles come to town to take on the Oakland Athletics.
This is the first meeting of the year between the two teams. Last year the Athletics won four of the seven gaems.
The Baltimore Orioles can still make the playoffs, but they need to start racking up some wins soon, and try to get above the .500 mark. After having won three games in a row, they come into this one having lost their last two games against the Angels.
In those two games they only gave up eight runs, but they only scored three and it led to their struggles. With Ubaldo Jimenez on the mound in this one the Orioles are probably going to need to put some runs, because Jimenez has an ERA over six this year.
The Oakland Athletics are playing for next year at this point, but they would really like to have a strong finish to their season. They also come into this game struggling having lost two in a row and five of their last ten games.
On the mound for the Athletics is Paul Blackburn who has been a really bright spot the last few weeks for this team. He comes into this game with a 3-1 record and an ERA of 2.60.
In his last start he went 6.2 innings against the Angels giving up five hits and zero runs.
