Quintanilla gets first start with Orioles (and note on Jim Gilbert)

Omar Quintanilla will follow up two appearances with the Orioles as a defensive replacement at second base with his first start tonight at shortstop.

J.J. Hardy gets a rare breather, and it comes after he collected two hits, including a home run, and drove in three runs yesterday afternoon.

Ryan Flaherty stays at second base, and Endy Chavez replaces Chris Davis in left field. Davis is starting at first base.

NOTE: Long-time Orioles area scout Jim Gilbert, one of the founders of the Oriolelanders program and a Mid-Atlantic Scouts Association Hall of Famer, passed away last night. I’m still gathering more information, but I wanted to pass it along. Sad news.
