Hardy out again, Lough not on DL yet (Orioles and Yankees lineups)

NEW YORK - J.J. Hardy is out of the Orioles lineup for the fifth time in six games, one day after he expressed hope that he'd be able to play again tonight at Yankee Stadium.

On top of that, David Lough is listed on the bench after it appeared he was headed to the disabled list with Jemile Weeks joining the Orioles. Weeks is in New York, but is not listed on tonight's lineup card. Hardy says his back is much better. He will work out on Thursday's off-day and hopes to play on Friday.

Lough remains a candidate to be placed on the DL. He had a doctor's appointment in Baltimore, but could return to New York for the game.

As for the current lineup, the Orioles are going with the same order that racked up 14 runs and 20 hits in yesterday's win over the Yankees.
