Orioles and Red Sox lineups in Fort Myers

FORT MYERS, Fla. – The 20-win spring training Orioles play their penultimate road game tonight against the Red Sox at JetBlue Park.

Albert Suárez makes his fifth appearance and third start, and he needs to avoid the one disastrous inning that has marred his last two games and maybe impacted his chances of going north.

Suárez has logged 11 1/3 innings and allowed eight runs and 13 hits with one walk and 16 strikeouts. He was charged with five runs in the seventh inning of Friday’s game against the Rays in Port Charlotte.

Gunnar Henderson is leading off and playing shortstop. Jordan Westburg is the third baseman and cleanup hitter.

Colton Cowser is in center field. Tyler Nevin is the left fielder and Kolten Wong is the second baseman.

Ryan Mountcastle is playing in back-to-back games. Michael Pérez is behind the plate.

Andrew Suárez and Jonathan Heasley are in the bullpen. Jackson Holliday, Coby Mayo, Connor Norby, Heston Kjerstad and Kyle Stowers are on the bench.

The minor league crew on the trip includes Errol Robinson, Reed Trimble, Wandisson Charles, Trey McGough, Morgan McSweeney, Keagan Gillies and Graham Firoved.

Grayson Rodriguez starts Sunday’s exhibition finale against the Twins in Fort Myers.
