Today’s Orioles Lineup

August 12, 2009 |

It’ll be an early 1:35pm first pitch when the Orioles shoot for the series against the Oakland A’s in the rubber-game between the two this afternoon at Camden Yards.

Last night’s O’s 3-2 win ended a nine-game losing streak to Oakland dating back to July 22, 2007.  David Hernandez was exceptional in picking up the win, going 6.2 innings and striking out a career-high six, while allowing A’s hitters to just two runs on two solo homers.

Two rookie right-handers will once again be matched up between the O’s and A’s when it’ll be Jason Berken (2-9, 6.72) going against Oakland’s 21-year old Vin Mazzaro (3-8, 5.70).

The early start will give the Orioles lineup a different look, including Adam Jones batting in the five spot for the first time this season. Also, Nolan Reimold and Melvin Mora are on the bench with Felix Pie and Ty Wigginton taking their places in left and at third respectively.
