Beleaguered Orioles turn to 'opener' against A's

The Baltimore Orioles will try the "opener" thing in hopes of helping young left-hander Josh Rogers when they attempt to avoid a three-game series sweep at the hands of the host Oakland Athletics on Wednesday afternoon.

Orioles manager Brandon Hyde announced Tuesday night that he will go with right-hander Jimmy Yacabonis (1-1, 5.40 ERA) for an inning or two in the series finale before switching over to Rogers (0-0, 7.88).

"The way our pitching is, you kind of never know," Hyde told reporters before Tuesday's game, referring to the day-to-day status of his starting rotation. "We're keeping him (Yacabonis) available (for Tuesday's game), but best-case scenario, he will pitch (Wednesday)."
