Boston Red Sox/Baltimore Orioles Preview

Written by 

Camden Yards has been a house of horrors of the Boston Red Sox the past two Septembers. 

In 2011, the Red Sox  completed their legendary September collapse by losing two of three which kept them from the playoffs. Last season, the 93 loss team was swept in Camden Yards in their final road trip of the season. 

While the Red Sox have the AL East locked up, they still are playing for home-field advantage throughout the World Series. Boston has a two-game advantage over the Oakland Athletics with three games to play. 

Here are the pitching matchups for the three game series:


Red Sox                                                     Orioles


Friday:        Clay Buchholz                    vs.                   Scott Feldman     7:05 p.m. eastern

Buchholz will be starting in his fourth game since missing three months with a right shoulder injury. The right-hander is 11-1 with a 1.60 ERA this season and only given up two earned runs over 17 innings since his return. 

Scott Feldman has pitched well this season despite his 12-11 record. He has 3.51 ERA this season and has allowed three runs or less in his last eight starts. 


Saturday:      Jon Lester                         vs.                         Bruce Chen        7:05 p.m.  Eastern

Lester will make his case for being the number one starter in the playoffs on Saturday. The left-handed pitcher has an ERA of 1.80 in the month of September and has really turned his season around after a mid-season slump.

Bruce Chen will pitch for Orioles, as he will try to end his season on a good note. The Taiwanese pitcher does have a 3-2 record in September, but has an ERA of 5.13.



Sunday:  John Lackey                            vs.                            Chris Tillman     1:35 p.m. eastern 

Lackey may have a 10-13 record on the season, but he's been the Red Sox most consistent pitcher all season long. Lackey, who will be a strong candidate for Comeback Player of The Year, has an ERA 3.52 this season. 


Chris Tillman will be pitching his last game of the season and it has been a good season for the 25-year-old pitcher. He has a record of 16-7 with an ERA of 3.62. It has been the best pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles and he will be looking to end their season with a win.
