Cabrera, Orioles take on the Royals

Apr 14, 2007 - 2:44 PM Kansas City (3-8) at Baltimore (5-6) 7:05 pm EDT

BALTIMORE (Ticker) -- The Baltimore Orioles have been waiting for Daniel Cabrera to break out as a dominant starter. If the first week of the season is any indication, it may be on the verge of happening.

Cabrera takes the mound Saturday as the Orioles host the Kansas City Royals in the third game of a four-game series.

The 25-year-old righthander struggled with his control over the past three seasons, culminating with a demotion to the minors last July after posting four or more walks in 11 starts.

Cabrera (1-1, 3.07 ERA) walked four in his first start this season, but recovered to allow just two runs while walking none last Monday in a win against Detroit.

The Royals will counter with Odalis Perez (0-2, 10.80). The 29-year-old lefthander has struggled out of the gate, allowing eight earned runs in 6 2/3 innings.

However, Perez has had success against Baltimore, owning a 2-0 career mark while allowing just two runs in 15 innings.

After having managed just four runs combined in their three previous games, the Orioles broke out for eight runs Friday in an 8-1 win.
