When the O’s Blow Into Town: Tonight’s Lineup
By Matt Adams
Philip Humber will finally get that first start in, however it might not be pretty depending on which way the expected 45MPH wind gusts are pointing. The Orioles are themselves coming off of 2 wins in 3 tries against a divisional rival and will counter with Jake Arrieta.
1.De Aza – CF
2.Morel – 3B
3.Dunn – DH
4.Konerko – 1B
5.AJ – C
6.Rios – RF
7.Ramirez – SS
8.Viciedo – LF
9.Beckham – 2B
The folks concerning themselves heavily with lineup order will be disappointed to see that Morel remains in the 2 spot. Not the best guy you’d like to have near the top of your lineup but tonight, with the wind blowing everywhere anyone can be a hero or a goat.
Man to contain: Adam Jones has been swinging the hot bat for the O’s and along with Matt Weiters, JJ Hardy and Nick Markakis make up a surprisingly solid middle of the order.
