On Don Mattingly‘s 52nd birthday, he gets the gift of two Dodger games. That’s either a great way to spend your birthday — yay, Dodger baseball! — or a terrible punishment, if the team plays at all like they did while getting swept at home by the Padres.

Today’s weather looks to be much better, with temperatures around 60 and mostly cloudy skies, as you can see in this picture tweeted out by Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register. Both clubs keep the same lineups as they’d originally planned to have last night, with Hyun-jin Ryu and Jason Hammel on the mound.

While we’ve been over how odd it is to see the Dodgers in Baltimore at all, much less in April, the more I think about it, the more I like it. Camden Yards is a gorgeous park occupied by a usually terrible team, which means that the Orioles are rarely on national broadcasts. I couldn’t tell you the last time I watched an entire game from Baltimore, to be honest. Would you really rather see the Dodgers play there, or in yet another game in Coors Field or Petco Park or Chase Field? It’s a long season. I think I’m happy for the variety.
