Its usually big news when the Boston Red Sox come to town. This weekend, the big news is that the Orioles are the center of attention.The Red Sox, staggering toward the end of a most disappointing season, will try and end their season as spoilers in Baltimore and New York.A year ago, the Orioles ended Bostons season unhappily.

Saturday is Brooks Robinsons night. Its a sellout. Steve Johnson (4-0, 1.62) faces Felix Doubront (11-9, 4.91). The Orioles havent decided on their starter for Sunday. Zach Stewart (0-1, 27.00 is Bostons .The Orioles, who began Thursday night trailing the Yankees by 1 games.
