Orioles release 2011 schedule

I'm in a cut-and-paste kind of mood, so here you go:

For the second consecutive year, the Orioles will begin their 2011 season on the road in Tampa Bay. The teams will meet on Friday, April 1 at Tropicana Field, the 18th time in 58 years the Orioles will have opened their schedule away from Baltimore. After two more games in Tampa, the 2011 team will make their debut at Camden Yards on Monday, April 4 against the Detroit Tigers. After an off-day on April 5, the Orioles will play the Tigers twice more, followed by a three-game set with the Texas Rangers from April 8-10 to conclude the opening homestand.

The Orioles will play each of their AL East rivals three times at Oriole Park. The New York Yankees will make their first visit to Baltimore the weekend of April 22-24, followed by a two-game stop in May (18-19) and a four-game weekend series in August (26-29). The Red Sox will have three three-game series at Camden Yards - April 26-28, July 18-20 and September 26-28. The Tampa Bay Rays will make their first trip to Oriole Park the weekend of May 6-8, followed by two more three-game series June 10-12 and September 12-14. The Toronto Blue Jays will play in Baltimore June 3-5, August 5-7 and August 30-September 1.

In interleague play in 2011 the Cincinnati Reds (June 24-26) and St. Louis Cardinals (June 28-30) will play at Camden Yards for the first time. The Birds will also continue their rivalry with Washington in a home-and-home series against the Nationals. Baltimore will host a three-game series against the Nationals, May 20-22, then play at Nationals Park June 17-19. The Birds will also travel to Pittsburgh (June 20-22) and Atlanta (July 1-3) .

In addition to opening at home against the Tigers, the Orioles will host another three-game series against Detroit at Camden Yards August 12-14. The Orioles will also host the Los Angeles Angels two times (July 22-24 and September 16-18). They will face every other American League Central and AL West opponent once in Baltimore.

Baltimore will play 16 home games in April and August, their busiest months at Oriole Park. Overall, the Orioles will play 45 of the 91 games prior to the All-Star break at Camden Yards. They have three 10-game homestands - April 18-28 against Minnesota, New York and Boston; July 14-24 against Cleveland, Boston and Los Angeles; and August 5-14 against Toronto, Chicago and Detroit.

The Orioles have two 10-game road trips in 2011 - July 1-10 to Atlanta, Texas and Boston and August 15-25 to Oakland, Los Angeles and Minnesota. Baltimore's busiest travel months are July and September, when they play 16 of 26 games away from Camden Yards.

Baltimore will conclude the season at home with a three-game series against Boston, September 26-28.

Times will be announced at a later date.
