Red Sox vs. Orioles Match-Ups, 7/25

07.25.09 at 2:29 pm ET

After coming off a tough loss to Toronto in which the Red Sox bats were virtually silent throughout most of the game, Jon Lester will certainly be happy to face the Baltimore Orioles tonight.

Lester, who is 8-0 lifetime against the Orioles with a 2.18 ERA, will be looking to keep his perfect streak alive as he faces off against Jeremy Guthrie, who is 1-2 with a 4.01 ERA in nine games against Boston. Guthrie’€™s last start at Fenway came on April 17 when he allowed 8 runs in 4 2/3 innings.

The Red Sox are 7-1 this season against Baltimore, who currently occupy last place in the AL East. Boston, who held a three-game lead over the second-place Yankees before the All-Star break, is now trailing New York by 2.5 games.
