Watch for ...

Great Scott: The Rays seem confident LHP Scott Kazmir has figured things out by simplifying his delivery and that his two-game winning streak is the start of something good. Kazmir is 2-2, 5.01 in eight starts against the Orioles. 2B Brian Roberts is 7-for-20 off him with a homer.

Dominating Daniel: Orioles starter Daniel Cabrera has great stuff but has trouble harnessing it. He is 4-0, 3.56 in eight starts against the Rays. Carl Crawford is 6-for-19 off him and B.J. Upton 3-for-6 with a homer.

Free passes: Cabrera's 68 walks are the most issued by an AL pitcher, and Kazmir is second at 63.
