Jeremy Guthrie will take the mound today as the Orioles attempt to halt a five-game losing streak.
Guthrie has got to play stopper today, and he seems the most qualified on the staff. He's allowed one run and seven hits in 14 innings, and he should have better stamina today.
Here's the Orioles' lineup, which includes Jake Fox behind the plate:
Brian Roberts 2B
Nick Markakis RF
Derrek Lee 1B
Vladimir Guerrero DH
Luke Scott LF
Adam Jones CF
Mark Reynolds 3B
Jake Fox C
Robert Andino SS
Jeremy Guthrie RHP
Guthrie is 2-0 lifetime against the team that lost him on waivers. He's posted a 4.41 ERA against the Indians, allowing eight runs in 16 1/3 innings over four appearances (two starts), but they're batting .200 against him. He's surrendered 12 hits, walked two and struck out 11.
Guthrie has one blown save against the Indians. Can't say that I remember it.
