Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox

Baltimore opens up its 10-game road trip that will also take them to Detroit and Texas before the All-Star break.  The Orioles come into Boston winners of five of their last seven games and hold a 5-4 season series advantage over the Red Sox.  This may change over the course of the weekend, considering Baltimore’s 2-15 record in its last 17 games at Fenway Park.  The troublesome bullpen over the past couple years has turned a corner over the last seven games, allowing just 22 hits and striking out 24 batters in compiling a 1.71 ERA.  The Orioles are a dreadful 8-25 against divisional opponents in 2010 (-1,390) and 54-123 over the last three years (-4,890).
