Chris Davis remains in the lineup and continues to bat seventh.
Beckham is 22-for-44 with the Orioles, including four doubles, two triples, three home runs and six RBIs. He’s 6-for-12 in his last three games.
Beckham is the first player to begin his Orioles career with an 11-game hitting streak since Eric Byrnes in 2005.
Dylan Bundy has faced the Athletics once in his career, allowing an unearned run in two innings in the first game of a May 7, 2016 doubleheader at Camden Yards.
Only two of the current A’s have an at-bat against Bundy. Jed Lowrie is 1-for-1 with two RBIs.
Left-hander Sean Manaea hasn’t lasted more than 3 1/3 innings in his last two starts, with seven earned runs and 12 total allowed in 6 1/3. Left-handers are hitting .223 against him this season and right-handers are hitting .260.
Manaea has never pitched against the Orioles. Beckham is 1-for-6 lifetime and Rubén Tejada is 0-for-2.
The Orioles are two games back for the second wild card.
