Tonight’s Orioles – Angels Lineups

August 17, 2009 |

Tonight downtown at Camden Yards the Orioles and Angels will wrap-up their four game set with the O’s looking for a split beginning at 7:05pm.

The pitching matchup for the contest will pit O’s rookie David Hernandez (4-4, 3.81) against the Angels’ 26-year old right-hander Ervin Santana (5-6, 6.38).

Now that Aubrey Huff has been sent to Detroit, Dave Trembley’s lineup has quite the different look to it.

Most surprisingly, Luke Scott will man first base and bat fifth, while Ty Wigginton will DH and bat eighth.  It’ll be interesting to see how the team plays it at first between those two, Michael Aubrey (acquired earlier this season from the Cleveland farm system) and Rhyne Hughes (the PTBNL in the Zaun deal with Tampa), both of whom are currently at Triple-A Norfolk.

Also of note, Cesar Izturis will be in the #2 hole and Felix Pie will be in left, batting ninth tonight.

Brian Roberts – 2B
Cesar Izturis – SS
