Orioles and Rays lineups

SARASOTA, Fla. - A light rain continues to fall at the Ed Smith Stadium complex, and it’s a familiar sight for the Orioles, who have lost four games due to inclement weather.

What’s one more?

We’re up to four rainouts and four ties, for those of you keeping score at home.

The Orioles are hoping to keep score on the main field and give Ubaldo Jimenez a final start before he takes the mound on April 2 at Camden Yards.

Ryan Flaherty is starting at third base and Steve Lombardozzi is at second. A preview of the opening day lineup?

Nick Markakis is leading off and David Lough is batting second.

Steve Pearce and Jemile Weeks haven’t been told whether they’ve made the club. The wait continues.
