Orioles: Needing an encore

The Orioles finally reached double digits with their 10th victory of the season tonight, but it's going to be a tough act to follow. They have to get up in the morning and get ready to face Mariners right-hander Felix Hernandez.

There are two ways to look at this matchup. Hernandez pitched very well in his first four starts this year, building nicely on last year's 19-5 performance, but has fallen on harder times his past three times out. He has lost each of his last three starts and -- in his last two -- gave up 12 earned runs over eight innings of work.

So, you can look at it as a chance for the Orioles to catch him while he's down...or you can wonder just how long he's going to stay down.

Or maybe -- just maybe -- Kevin Millwood will finally get rewarded for his solid performance this season with his first victory. It was certainly be a nice way to bag the first series of this homestand.
