Orioles and Red Sox lineups

BOSTON – Ramón Urías has returned to the Orioles lineup tonight as the third baseman, with rookie Gunnar Henderson moving to shortstop.

Urías is receiving treatment for spasms between his neck and right shoulder.

Rookie Terrin Vavra remains on the bench, but his left hamstring is much better and he’s available to play. Vavra felt it grab Sunday while running the bases and came out of the game.

Anthony Santander is the left fielder, and Austin Hays is in right. Rookie Kyle Stowers goes from left field last night to the designated hitter role tonight.

Kyle Bradish is making the 22nd start of his rookie season. He tossed 8 2/3 scoreless innings with two hits, no walks and 10 strikeouts Thursday night against the Astros and will try to bring the same stuff to Fenway Park.

Or at least what he had on Sept. 11 against the Red Sox at Camden Yards, when he allowed one run and two hits in seven innings.

Bradish is 0-3 with a 5.31 ERA and 1.279 WHIP in four starts against the Red Sox. He allowed two earned runs in six innings in his major league debut on April 29, but six in 1 2/3 innings on May 27 in Boston.

Santander’s 31 home runs are the most by an Orioles switch-hitter since Eddie Murray’s 31 in 1985.

Henderson is the youngest Oriole to reach base four times and hit a home run since Boog Powell in 1962.

Hays’ home run last night was his first since Aug. 27 in Houston, a span of 23 games.

The Orioles have scored 10 or more runs in two of their last three games.

The Red Sox have lost six games in a row, their longest streak since dropping nine straight in August 2020. They’re 7-9 against the Orioles.

Last night was the 12th time this season that Boston recorded at least 15 hits in a game, tied for most in the majors.

Michael Wacha is 11-1 with a 2.70 ERA and 1.058 WHIP in 21 starts. He has quality starts in his last five outings, and his only loss is May 31, despite allowing just an unearned run in 5 2/3 innings.

Wacha has allowed one run or none in 10 starts. He’s made two starts at Camden Yards and won twice, tossing 5 2/3 scoreless innings and surrendering three runs in six innings.

Cedric Mullins hit a home run. He’s 7-for-14 with two doubles, a triple and two home runs lifetime against Wacha.

Ryan Mountcastle is 5-for-13 with two home runs.

Rafael Devers is the fifth Red Sox player to record 25 homers and 40 doubles in multiple seasons, joining David Ortiz (five seasons), Mookie Betts (three), Ted Williams (three) and Nomar Garciaparra (two).

Devers is 5-for-11 against Bradish. Kiké Hernández and Xander Bogaerts have hit home runs.
