Brad Bergesen completed another live batting practice session and is scheduled to start Wednesday night against the Pittsburgh Pirates in Bradenton.

Mike Gonzalez is expected to pitch today for the Orioles, along with starter Jeremy Guthrie and relievers Mark Hendrickson, Kam Mickolio, David Hernandez and Will Ohman.

Miguel Tejada also will be in tomorrow's lineup, marking his first back-to-back starts. A few other regulars will get consecutive starts this week, while others will wait until next week.

Today marked the first morning that Tejada didn't do early work at third base. The Orioles are giving him Sundays off.

The Orioles have 11 home runs in four exhibition games.
