5/6 Pitchers Vs Hitters Matchups: Sox in Baltimore

May is definitely off to a better start than April was. The Red Sox are winners of 11 out of their last 16 games, and are suddenly just one game below reaching the .500 mark. Visiting the 12-22 Baltimore Orioles should help them at least get to that glorious .500 mark.

A slight hiccup as they begin this series, comes news that Price is heading to the ten day Injured List because of tendonitis. Josh Smith is getting today’s start, but you’d like to think that Darwinson Hernandez or Shawayrn would get into the rotation before Price comes back. They already have one bullpen game every return, with Hector Velazquez unable to go past three innings.
