The Starters: Jeremy Hellickson vs. Dana Eveland
The two best teams in the AL East are facing off for the first time in this series. These teams are both 20-12 and both tied for the division lead. The Rays have Jeremy Hellickson on the mound tonight, he has been great so far this year. He has a 3-0 record with a 2.75 ERA. He has only had one bad start all year, which was against the Athletics in his last start. He got pulled after just 3.2 innings pitched because his pitch count was already at 103. Other than that, he has been great the rest of his starts. As for the Orioles, they have Dana Eve land on the mound tonight. He has not pitched yet this year, but has experience on six different major league teams pitching. In his career he is 19-24, with a 5.52 ERA. I think that the Orioles will win game one 6-5.
