Gamethread: Orioles at White Sox, part deux

Bird, bird, bird, bird is the word

If you missed Game 1, Tommy Barbee was on the recap so you should go back and read that first.

I’ll wait ...

The opener was a face-off between Dallas Keuchel and Matt Harvey that was supposed to take place last night but got pushed to this morning. The nightcap is John Means and Lance Lynn. By all accounts (by accounts, I mean stats) Means is the one bright spot of the Orioles pitching staff. He’s leading the American League is ERA (1.79) and has 64 strikeouts. His last three starts have resulted in a no-decisions, so he’s looking to get the win tonight. Lynn had a no-hitter into the sixth on Monday against the Cardinals. He’s 2-1 lifetime against the Orioles and 6-3 in Guaranteed Rate. I hope the White Sox didn’t use up all of their offense in the opener, because I’m due for a good one.

Here’s how everyone’s lining it up tonight for Game 2:

Game 2 is sticking with NBCSports Chicago for us local folks, ESPN 1000 for you radio listeners, and MLB TV for the non-locals.

You’ve got me for the recap AND Six Pack of Stats, so hopefully they give us something good tonight. If not, I’m sorry because I can only work with what I’ve got.
