Orioles go for unlikely sweep of Braves

The Baltimore Orioles go for their first series sweep of the season against an unlikely opponent.

The O's, who entered the weekend with the worst record in the American League, will try to take three straight from the Atlanta Braves, who began the series tied for the best record in the National League. Atlanta has been swept only once this season.

Baltimore will send right-hander David Hess (2-3, 4.82 ERA) against Atlanta's Brandon McCarthy (5-3, 4.89) on Sunday at SunTrust Park.
