There’s a definite threat of rain for tonight’s game in Baltimore, but it’s dry at the moment.
Here’s the lineups:
A’s — Weeks 2B, Crisp LF, Reddick RF, Cespedes CF, Gomes DH, Suzuki C, Ka’aihue 1B, Hughes 3B, Pennington SS; Ross RHP.
Orioles — Reimold LF, Hardy SS, Markakis DH, Jones CF, Betemit 3B, Davis 1B, Paulino C, Flaherty RF, Andino 2B; Chen LHP.
–Luke Hughes, who has been ill, was feeling better and took early batting practice today. He’s back at third base despite Eric Sogard’s two-run homer last night. A’s manager Bob Melvin said he wanted the right-handed hitting Hughes in there against Orioles lefty Wei-Yin Chen. Kila Ka’aihue draws another start at first base, probably because he’s 6 for 14 against lefties this season.
I’ll keep you posted if we have any weather delays. Even if there’s no rain, it’s going to be a very chilly night …
