Kjerstad in tonight's Orioles lineup

Heston Kjerstad is starting in right field and batting eighth tonight, his second time in the lineup since the Orioles recalled him.

Colton Cowser moves up to fifth. Ramón Urías is starting at third base.

Ryan O’Hearn is the designated hitter. Anthony Santander begins the game on the bench.

Santander’s nine doubles are tied for first in the American League, but he’s batting .213/.289/.426 in 28 games.

Adley Rutschman will try to extend his hitting streak to 12 games. He’s batting .388/.400/.592 (19-for-49) with one double, three home runs, 11 RBIs, a walk and five runs scored during his streak.

Six of Jorge Mateo’s 10 hits are doubles.

The current Yankees roster is 2-for-32 against Corbin Burnes, who is 3-0 with a 2.55 ERA and 0.934 WHIP in six starts. Anthony Rizzo is 0-for-9 with four strikeouts.

The Orioles are 5-0 against division opponents. They have a one-game lead over the second-place Yankees.

Yankees right-hander Luis Gil has registered a 4.01 ERA and 1.338 WHIP in five starts. He’s walked 19 batters and struck out 35 in 24 2/3 innings.

Gil’s only career start against the Orioles came in his major league debut on Aug. 3, 2021, when he shut them out on four hits over six innings at Yankee Stadium.

Alex Wells started for the Orioles, and Adam Plutko and Shaun Anderson pitched in relief.

Juan Soto’s 447-foot home run last night was the first from a Yankees batter to land on Eutaw Street since Didi Gregorius on Aug. 8, 2019.
