Chris Davis starting at third base tonight (game delayed)

It’s been raining all day in New York and the forecast calls for rain all night, but here’s the Orioles’ lineup, just in case they’re able to play this game and avoid a doubleheader tomorrow. It includes Chris Davis at third base and Matt Angle in left field. Nolan Reimold remains on the bench.

For the Orioles:

Matt Angle LF
J.J. Hardy SS
Nick Markakis RF
Adam Jones CF
Vladimir Guerrero DH
Mark Reynolds 1B
Matt Wieters C
Chris Davis 3B
Robert Andino 2B

Tommy Hunter RHP

For the Yankees:

Gardner LF
Jeter SS
Granderson CF
Teixeira 1B
Cano 2B
Swisher RF
Chavez 3B
Posada DH
Cervelli C

Hughes RHP

Sixteen years ago today, Cal RIpken Jr. played in his 2,131st consecutive game to break Lou Gehrig’s unbreakable record. And 15 years ago today, Eddie Murray hit his 500th career home run.

NOTE: Orioles manager Buck Showalter confirmed to reporters in New York today that Brian Matusz will leave the rotation. No surprise here. Matusz will work out of the bullpen for now, concentrating on side sessions with pitching coach Rick Adair.

It’s still pouring in New York and they’re in a rain delay.
