Mancini returns to Orioles lineup

Trey Mancini returns to the Orioles lineup tonight as the designated hitter after missing three games with bruised ribs.

Tyler Nevin is the third baseman. Anthony Bemboom is catching.

Left-hander Bruce Zimmermann has allowed only two earned runs, though seven total, in 19 1/3 innings in his four starts. He’s struck out 21 batters.

Zimmermann faced the Twins on June 1, 2021 and allowed two runs with seven strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings. Kyle Garlick homered.

Orioles starters have a 1.72 ERA at home. They’ve held opponents to two earned runs or fewer in 19 of 23 games this season.

Rookie right-hander Joe Ryan has made four starts and allowed only three runs and 10 hits with 25 strikeouts in 23 innings. Tonight marks his first start against the Orioles.

Carlos Correa, booed during every at-bat last night, is 11-for-22 with six RBIs during a five-game hitting streak.
