The Sox are 8-2 against Baltimore. Considering the division has teams like the Yankees and Rays, and even a tough Toronto side, the O's are like a vacation. You know how college teams like Oklahoma and USC schedule cupcakes like Northern Colorado in the middle of the season? That's what the AL East has in the Orioles.
John Smoltz continues to look poor. 6 innings, 5 earned runs, and if it weren't for a 2 run Youkilis HR in the 7th, he wouldv'e had his 5th loss of the season.
