A’s, Orioles hope to get game in before rain hits

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 …

    Some interesting A’s info even Joe might not have known. Bartolo Colon’s shoulder was rebuilt with stem cells. Why he’s come back so strong.
    So right your backwards Republican rep and tell him to support stem cell research.
