Red Sox v. Orioles (May 21, 2012)

Boston Red Sox (20-21) at Baltimore Orioles (27-15)

SP - Clay Buchholz (4-2, 7.77) v. Tommy Hunter (2-2, 4.78)

1. Mike Aviles, SS
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. David Ortiz, DH
4. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
5. Will Middlebrooks, 3B
6. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
7. Daniel Nava, LF
8. Marlon Byrd, CF
9. Che-Hsaun Lin, RF

Three Strikes:

1. The foot injury for Cody Ross makes for six Red Sox outfielders on the disabled list. Ross' power will be missed at the bottom of the lineup and it also forces Bobby Valentine to go with an outfield of Nava-Byrd-Lin.

Not exactly Rice-Lynn-Evans.

2. I have a feeling thy Adrian Gonzalez is about to go on a tear.

3. If Buchholz struggles again tonight, would the Red Sox make another run at Roy Oswalt?

With Neftali Feliz going on the DL, the Rangers could also be in the mix for Oswalt.
