Baltimore will give the ball to Jeremy Guthrie, and like the vast majority of Orioles pitchers, the righty's numbers aren't impressive. Guthrie is 7-13 with a 4.13 ERA and has allowed 11 earned runs in his last two starts. On Tuesday, he permitted six runs on 10 hits in 6 2/3 innings against the White Sox.
For his career against the Angels, Guthrie is 2-2 with a 5.02 ERA.
He will oppose Jered Weaver this afternoon. Weaver's 3.21 ERA is strong, and he is aiming for his 12th win of the season. The standout righty hasn't received consistent run support this season, and his last two outings have resulted in defeat, including the most recent contest against the Twins.
Weaver is 2-2 lifetime versus the Twins with a 4.44 ERA.
Millwood (3-14) gave up six hits over eight scoreless innings for the Orioles, who have won three of four. He also struck out five and walked one in just his third victory of the year.
"I threw my fastball where I wanted to all night," Millwood said. "I tried to stay in there to finish but I understand the situation."
At 15-11, the Orioles recorded their first winning month since they went 15-12 in June of 2008. The last winning August for the O's came in 1997.
Scott Kazmir (8-12) went 5 2/3 frames, allowing four runs on eight hits to suffer the loss for the Angels, who have dropped five of six.
"Kazmir threw better than his line score indicated," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "He showed fastball command and he had a good changeup. Our offense has been limited and it puts pressure on our pitchers."
