Red Sox trying to win their third straight series

The Sox look to win the second of their three-game series with the Orioles tonight, as Ryan Dempster takes the mound against Jake Arrieta.

Boston's lineup looks like this:
1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Shane Victorino, RF
3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
4. Mike Napoli, 1B
5. Will Middlebrooks, 3B
6. Daniel Nava, DH
7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
8. Stephen Drew, SS
9. Jackie Bradley Jr., LF

Notes: Victorino is batting 2nd and Bradley is in the lineup for Gomes, which can only mean one thing: Jake Arrieta is a righty. Stephen Drew makes his unheralded debut for the Red Sox, as Jose Iglesias was sent down to Pawtucket before the game. Even though you probably didn't want to see Iglesias get sent down, trust me, it's for the best. Drew is a better player right now, and we want Iglesias to develop by playing every day, so AAA was the right choice. In four starts against the Red Sox, Arrieta is 0-3 with a 6.00 ERA...only slightly worse than his 5.38 career ERA in 59 starts. Dempster will get his second try at the feared AL East -- he had 3 earned runs and 8 strike outs in 5 innings against the Yankees in his first go, picking up the loss. Baltimore's lead off man Nate McLouth has a .300 batting average with one home run in 20 career at bats against Dempster, but J.J. Hardy has only 2 hits in 27 at bats (.074 average).
