Notes: The Sox have won six of seven. They are 16 games over .500, matching their high for the season. … Miller has pitched pretty well in three starts, although his 1.47 WHIP is nothing to write home about. This will be his first start against an American League team since June 28, 2009. … Miller started against the Orioles in June 23, 2009 while pitching for Florida. He allowed a leadoff double to Brian Roberts then not another hit for seven innings. … Arrieta faced the Sox on Sept. 1, 2010 and allowed three runs on six hits over five innings. … Dustin Pedroia has reached base safely in 20 straight games.


Stat of the Day: The Orioles have a run differential of -80. Only Houston (-92) is worse.

Song of the Day: “Stand Tall” by The Dirty Heads.
