Orioles lineup vs. Marlins: 8/6/20

The Orioles will look to avoid the four-game sweep against the Miami Marlins, as both teams will face off tonight at Camden Yards. Game time is set for 7:35 p.m. EST and will be aired on MASN. The O’s are still the away team due to these games being rescheduled from their previous matchups in Miami.

Wade LeBlanc (1-0) takes his 4.09 ERA into a matchup against Miami’s Jordan Yamamoto, who is making his first appearance of the season after being recalled by the team on Tuesday.

Here is Baltimore’s starting lineup for game four against Miami:

  1. Hanser Alberto 2B
  2. Anthony Santander RF
  3. José Iglesias SS
  4. Dwight Smith Jr. LF
  5. Renato Núñez DH
  6. Chance Sisco C
  7. Austin Hays CF
  8. Christ Davis 1B
  9. Pat Valaika 3B

Wade LeBlanc LHP

One key highlight of tonight’s roster is that Pat Valaika moves over to third base, while Renato Núñez will hit at the DH spot. Additionally, Austin Hays (.158 BA) was moved from the leadoff spot to hitting seventh. The young outfielder is yet to find his stride at the plate so far this season.

Outfielder DJ Stewart was optioned to the alternate site following last night’s losses in the doubleheader.

After a hot start to the season, the Orioles have struggled at the plate in this series, being outscored 7-1 in three games. The O’s will look to rebound tonight before traveling down the Beltway for a three-game series in DC against the Nationals.
