Seals Set to Take on Orange County

The Seals play the 2-9 Orange County Flyers tonight at 7 PM in Fullerton, California in the first of a quick 3-game series. The game will be the home opener for Orange County after starting the season with an 11-game road trip. The three-game set between the teams concludes on Wednesday night with a double-header. Both games of the doubleheader will be seven innings (unless extra innings are required). The shortened games should help the Seals given the difficulties their bullpen has had bridging the gap between the starter and closer Javier Garcia.

Victoria took two out of three games from the Flyers in Royal Athletic Park a week ago. Unless Darrell Evans mixes up the rotation, Eduardo Baeza (1-2, 4.74 ERA) will be the starter tonight.
