Orioles and White Sox lineups

Nick Markakis is back in right field tonight for the Orioles after being used as a defensive replacement last night.

Michael Morse is in left field and Danny Valencia is the designated hitter.

Orioles starter Scott Feldman has a lifetime 5.16 ERA in September/October, compared to 3.98 in August. He's 4-2 with a 4.09 ERA in 15 career games against the White Sox, including nine starts.

White Sox left-hander John Danks is 5-4 with a 4.08 ERA in 11 career starts against the Orioles and 1-1 with a 3.70 ERA in four starts at Camden Yards, with three walks and 16 strikeouts in 24 1/3 innings.

Danks held the Orioles to two runs over seven innings in a 5-2 victory on July 2 in Chicago.

Brian Roberts is 9-for-25 with a double, home run and five RBIs against Danks. Markakis is 11-for-33 with a double and home run. J.J. Hardy is 7-for-21 with four doubles and a home run.

Adam Jones has homered in back-to-back games and he's hit three in his last five, but he's 1-for-27 vs. Danks. Chris Davis is 0-for-11.

The short-season Single-A Aberdeen IronBirds are hosting their first playoff game tonight, and it falls on the 18th anniversary of Cal Ripken Jr. breaking Lou Gehrig's record for consecutive games played. Seems appropriate.

The IronBirds are giving away rally towels and free commemorative game programs, and also treating fans to a post-game fireworks show.
