Moving on, in this case, means trying to get the bats right back in order. Baltimore set several season highs on Tuesday night including, but not limited to, its highest-scoring inning, highest-scoring game and largest margin of victory. The challenge will be to repeat that process Wednesday against Darrell Rasner, who has won both of his starts.
The Orioles will counter with southpaw Garrett Olson, who is also undefeated this season. The rookie has managed to go deep in virtually all of his starts, shaking the command issues that dogged him last season. Olson will be the first of two left-handers pitching in this series for Baltimore, and Brian Burres will work the finale on Thursday.
BAL: LHP Garrett Olson (3-0, 3.47 ERA)
Olson has walked seven in four starts, but just two of those have come in his past three outings.
NYY: RHP Darrell Rasner (2-0, 3.00 ERA)
Rasner has gone six innings and allowed two earned runs in each of his two starts -- both victories.
The Orioles set a season high with 12 runs on Tuesday, the most the team had scored since a 12-0 victory last August against the Yankees. ... Baltimore is 8-2 in its past 10 games and 4-1 in its last five road games. ... Scott homered Tuesday for the third time in his last five games, and Adam Jones recorded career highs in hits (four) and RBIs (four).
