Preview of Saturday's Games (7/2)

Cleveland Indians @ Orioles
Game Time: 1:35 p.m.
Location: Oriole Park at Camden Yards

CLE: 43-35 (3rd in AL Central, 10 behind Chicago)
BAL: 43-36 (2nd in AL East, 2.5 behind Boston, 2.5 ahead of Toronto)

Pitching Match-up
CLE: Kevin Millwood (3-5, 3.08 ERA) Throws Right
BAL: Daniel Cabrera (5-7, 5.48 ERA) Throws Right

The Orioles look to keep their hopes of series split with the Indians alive this afternoon, sending Daniel Cabrera to face veteran Kevin Millwood.

Cabrera has been wildly inconsistent this year, never really hitting the potential that he showed last year.

Melvin Mora is expected to miss this game.

Nationals @ Chicago Cubs
Game Time: 4:05 p.m.
Location: Wrigley Field

WAS: 48-31 (1st in NL East, 4.5 ahead of Atlanta)
CHC: 40-38 (2nd in NL Central, 9.5 behind St. Louis)

Pitching Match-up
WAS: Tony Armas Jr. (3-4, 5.44 ERA) Throws Right
CHC: Jerome Williams (1-2, 4.91 ERA) Throws Right

The Nationals look to extend their winning streak to five against the Cubs today.

Tony Armas Jr., who has struggled somewhat this year, pitches for the Nationals against Jerome Williams, whom the Cubs received in a trade for LaTroy Hawkins in May.
