Oriloes @ Red Sox Preview

The Red Sox had a great comeback last night, and this offense is rolling, but tonight could be a lot more difficult with Britton on the hill for Baltimore and the Wake trying to hold it together for the Red Sox. Britton has faced the Red Sox once in his career, but he looked damn strong going 6 innings allowing only 1 run, plus he is 5-2 with a 2.42 ERA. This is a different Boston offense then it was on April 26th, so hopefully they can light him up.

This will be Wakefield's third start of the season and last time out he was hit hard, allowing 8 runs, 9 hits and 4 walks in 4 1/3 innings. For Sox fans you hope Wakefield can go 5 innings and allow no more then 4 runs. That's really what you are asking for from the 44 year old.

It will be tough to score on Britton, but I do think they can wear him out, and we saw just how bad the Orioles bullpen is last night. So, I think the Sox might have to comeback in this game, but I do think they can win.

Red Sox win 7-5
Player of the Game: Youk
Game starts at 7:10pm
