Orioles vs. White Sox: Game 2 Lineups (doubleheader game 1)

The Orioles were set to face the Chicago White Sox for game two of this four-game series Friday night. However, Mother Nature had other plans.

Instead, the Orioles and White Sox will play a doubleheader Saturday, with both games being seven innings.

Matt Harvey will get the start in the first game, followed by true ace John Means in game two. For the White Sox, Dallas Keuchel will start game one, and Lance Lynn will start game two.

In his last four starts, Harvey is 0-4 and has allowed 18 runs. The task for Harvey gets no easier today against a powerful White Sox lineup, as he looks to end the Orioles’ 10-game losing streak.

Ryan Mountcastle returns to the lineup today, after being hit in the wrist by a pitch last week. Tyler Nevin will see his first major league action a day late, playing first base for the Orioles. He will wear No. 41.

In other news, the Orioles dodged a major bullet, when Trey Mancini had to exit game one of this series after being hit by a pitch in the elbow. X-rays were negative, and Brandon Hyde believes Mancini should be ready as early as Monday.

Without further ado, here are the lineups for game one of today’s doubleheader!
