Orioles update

The Orioles continue to meet with frustration in all phases of the ++ game. The starting pitchers have been erratic, the defense average and the offensive production sporadic at best. The club has averaged 3 1/2 runs, while the pitchers are giving up an average of more than 4 earned runs. 1B Glenn Davis remains on the disabled list with a damaged spinal accessory nerve in his neck.

Athletics update

The A's took the day off yesterday, and it couldn't have come at a better time. The pitching staff gave up 35 runs in 2 games against the Cleveland Indians, 19 less than the Indians had scored in their first 19 games. But the Orioles will face two front-line starting pitchers -- Moore and Stewart -- who had nothing to do with that. 1B Mark McGwire has 19 home runs in 51 games against the Orioles.
