Mancini remains out of Orioles lineup for series finale

The Orioles conclude the first of three series on the homestand this afternoon with Jordan Lyles starting and Trey Mancini on the bench.

Mancini wasn’t available last night after bruising his ribs Friday while making a catch in right field and slamming into the wall. He said yesterday that he was fine, but manager Brandon Hyde wanted to rest him.

Mancini is 1-for-14 with a home run against Red Sox starter Nick Pivetta.

Tyler Nevin is starting at first base. Ryan Mountcastle is the designated hitter.

Ramón Urías is the third baseman, with Kelvin Gutiérrez out of the lineup for the third game in a row. Jorge Mateo is the shortstop.

Rougned Odor is batting fifth.

Lyles is 1-1 with a 6.10 ERA and 1.742 WHIP in four career starts against the Red Sox covering 20 2/3 innings.

Pivetta is 0-3 with an 8.27 ERA and 1.959 WHIP in four starts. He’s allowed 15 runs and 19 hits in 16 1/3 innings, and his 13 walks are tied for most in the American League.

Pivetta is 6-1 with a 3.60 ERA and 1.133 WHIP in eight career starts against the Orioles.

Cedric Mullins is 6-for-16 with a double and home run against Pivetta. He’s also struck out seven times.
