Mountcastle remains out of Orioles lineup

NEW YORK – The Orioles are trying to avoid being swept today in a three-game series at Yankee Stadium for the first time since 2017.

The 10-day road trip wraps up in the Bronx cold with left-hander Bruce Zimmermann on the mound and Ryan Mountcastle still on the bench.

Mountcastle was scratched yesterday with neck stiffness.

Cedric Mullins is the designated hitter, Ryan McKenna is in center field and Trey Mancini is playing first base.

Zimmermann has a 1.20 ERA and 1.133 WHIP in three starts and averages 9.6 strikeouts per nine innings. He faced the Yankees on April 17 and shut them out over five innings.

The Baltimore native and Loyola Blakefield graduate is making his first appearance in New York.

Orioles pitchers have surrendered home runs in the last six games after allowing just three in the first 12. Fourteen have been hit in those six games.

Orioles batters have hit home runs in three consecutive games. However, the club is 0-7 when it homers.

Anthony Santander produced a game-tying home run last night and has reached base in all 18 games this season, and 19 dating back to September 2021. He’s in right field today.

Anthony Bemboom is catching and Kelvin Gutiérrez is at third base.

The Orioles are 3-6 on the trip. They begin a 10-game homestand Friday night, playing the Red Sox, Twins and Royals.

Yankees right-hander Jameson Taillon allowed two runs and three hits in 4 2/3 innings in an April 16 start in Baltimore. Cedric Mullins homered.
