Orioles set to face Lee this weekend

ARLINGTON -- The Orioles just happen to have the bad luck of facing new Texas pitcher Cliff Lee on Saturday night after the All-Star was acquired by the Rangers before Friday's game.

Lee was supposed to start for Seattle on Friday night against the New York Yankees. But for the 26-59 Orioles, it's kind of par for the course to draw Lee, who is 8-3 with six walks all season.

"It's something that is a challenge for us," Orioles interim manager Juan Samuel said. "We've been facing good pitching all year. He's just one of those guys that we have to go out there and have a good game against him."
