The Orioles will play their first away series of the season starting Tue, April 11, in Boston. This is an important series for the Orioles becuase it is with divison rival Boston Red Sox.
Much like the other teams in the American Leauge East the Red Sox are an extremely dangerous offense. So pitching will play an important role in the outcomes of the games. With starting pitcher David Price being on the disabled list adn Chris Sale pitching tonight the Orioles need to get to the pitchers early and often.
Last season starting Outfielder for the Red Sox Mookie Betts hit three homeruns in the same game against the Orioles adn is still as dnagoerus as before so the starting pitchers will have to be careful when pitching to Betts.
