Red Sox update The good news for the Orioles is they'll miss Pedro Martinez this series. The bad news is a slumping team gets another dose of Nomo, who tonight tries to become only the second pitcher in major-league history (Johnny Vander Meer, 1938) to pitch back-to-back no-hitters. Nomo tossed the first no-hitter in Camden Yards history last Wednesday and the Orioles haven't recovered yet. The Red Sox elbowed out the Orioles for the AL's best ERA thanks to Martinez's Sunday shutout of Tampa Bay. Soft-tossing Castillo is 1-0 with a 1.06 ERA in his last three starts against the Orioles. Overshadowed by Nomo's no-hitter was the fact that the Orioles won the season-opening series by twice beating closer Derek Lowe. The Orioles have a shortage of left-handed relievers but own quality right-handers. The Orioles were 4-2 at Fenway Park each of the last two seasons. Neither team has swept a three-game series from the other in Boston since 1994. Ponson makes his second start tonight after striking out 10 opposite Nomo. Johnson followed the next day with 8 1/3 solid innings but did not factor in a ninth-inning win. Carl Everett and Manny Ramirez have warmed up. Everett has four doubles in his last two games while Ramirez is 6-for-11 with seven RBIs in his first three home games. --- Joe Strauss
