José Iglesias returns to the Baltimore lineup tonight, as the Orioles look to avoid a three-game sweep against Boston at Fenway Park. The O’s lost game one 8-3 and game two 9-1.
Iglesias missed time with a wrist injury but will return to the lineup tonight; Brandon Hyde will be cautious with Iglesias and play him at DH.
After a couple games at first base, rookie Ryan Mountcastle returns to left field, while Pat Valaika plays first tonight. Alex Cobb (1-5) is on the mound against Martín Pérez (3-4). Cobb has lost all three of his last three starts and will look to bounce back tonight.
Here is Baltimore’s game three lineup:
- Hanser Alberto 2B
- José Iglesias DH
- Ryan Mountcastle LF
- Pedro Severino C
- Austin Hays RF
- Pat Valaika 1B
- Rio Ruiz 3B
- Ramón Urías SS
- Cedric Mullins CF
The Orioles are 3-7 in their last 10 games and stand only a game above the Red Sox for last place in the AL East. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m. and will be aired on MASN2 and the Orioles Radio Network.
Let’s Go O’s!
