Orioles and Twins lineups

MINNEAPOLIS – Trey Mancini returns to the Orioles lineup today at Target Field after pinch-hitting last night. He didn’t start due to a sore right hand that required a cortisone injection.

Mancini’s eight-game hitting streak ended last night with his ground ball.

Mancini is playing right field and Anthony Santander is in left. Austin Hays is the designated hitter.

Robinson Chirinos is catching in a day game following a night game. Adley Rutschman is on the bench.

Tyler Nevin starts at third base.

Jordan Lyles has a 4.94 ERA and 1.459 WHIP in 15 starts. His 97 hits rank second in the majors and are tied for first in the American League.

Lyles has made two career starts against the Twins and allowed six runs and 11 hits in 11 1/3 innings.

Orioles starting pitchers have a 1.62 ERA in the last 11 games.

The Orioles are 4-4 on the road trip and have lost 11 in a row at Target Field dating back to July 5, 2018.

Ryan McKenna’s outfield assist last night was the team’s 18th of the season, tied for third in the majors.

Sonny Gray is 4-1 with a 2.17 ERA and 0.966 WHIP in his first 10 career starts for the Twins, and he’s surrendered only four home runs in 49 2/3 innings. He’s surrendered one earned run or fewer in four of his last five outings and two or less in nine.

Gray is 6-5 with a 4.53 ERA and 1.301 WHIP in 11 career starts against the Orioles.

Rougned Odor is 4-for-33 (.121) lifetime against Gray, with a double, home run and nine strikeouts.

The Twins are 13-4 when Byron Buxton homers. He hit a two-run, walk-off shot last night against Jorge López.

Luis Arraez, who singled to conclude a nine-pitch at-bat before Buxton’s homer, leads the majors with a .343 average and 29 multi-hit games.

Carlos Correa is batting .355 (22-for-62) in 16 games against the American League East.
