Orioles and Royals lineups in series finale

The Orioles have reached the end of their homestand. A makeup game today against the Royals, followed by their flight to St. Louis.

Tyler Nevin is starting at third base after playing right field yesterday in Game 2.

Trey Mancini is the first baseman and Ryan Mountcastle is the designated hitter.

Anthony Bemboom is catching.

Cedric Mullins is 13-for-36 (.361) with five doubles and two home runs during an eight-game hitting streak.

Chris Owings, on the bench today, became the first Oriole last night to draw three walks in a game since Trey Mancini on May 16, 2021 against the Yankees.

Catcher Robinson Chirinos was 0-for-21 before his eighth inning single in Game 2.

Tyler Wells was pushed back to this afternoon’s game and makes his first career start and fourth appearance against the Royals. He tossed 2 1/3 scoreless innings in 2021.

Orioles starters have allowed two earned runs or fewer in 12 of 15 home games.

Right-hander Carlos Hernández, who was supposed to start Friday before back-to-back rainouts, has allowed 12 earned runs and 13 total in 18 innings. He’s surrendered 24 hits, walked 10 batters and struck out eight.

The Orioles are 15-6 versus the Royals at Camden Yards dating back to 2015.
