Orioles and White Sox lineups (and notes)

The Orioles recalled reliever Rico Garcia from Triple-A Norfolk today to provide a fresh arm for a struggling bullpen. They optioned reliever Louis Head after last night’s game.

The club also optioned reliever Phoenix Sanders after claiming him off waivers yesterday from the Rays. He has three minor league options.

Garcia has appeared in four games with the Orioles and allowed four runs and eight hits in six innings. He has a 2.30 ERA in 14 appearances with Norfolk.

The Orioles will try tonight to win another series and move closer to the final wild card spot. They remained 2 ½ games back after last night’s 5-3 loss to the White Sox.

Kyle Stowers is in right field and Terrin Vavra is starting at second base.

Austin Hays is in left field. Anthony Santander is the designated hitter. 

Adley Rutschman leads all rookies in the majors with 25 doubles. He’s the 18th player and first catcher since 1900 with at least 25 doubles in his first 75 games, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Jordan Lyles has allowed eight runs and 14 hits in his last two starts over 8 1/3 innings. He’s walked two batters and struck out 14.

Lyles worked seven innings against the White Sox on June 26 and allowed four runs and six hits in a 4-3 loss. Gavin Sheets hit a two-run homer.

In six career games (four starts) against the White Sox, Lyles has registered a 5.56 ERA and 1.544 WHIP with one save over 22 2/3 innings.

Elvis Andrus is 11-for-32 (.344) against Lyles. Josh Harrison is 10-for-19 (.526). AJ Pollock is 4-for-13 with a double and home run.

Veteran right-hander Lance Lynn has posted a 5.30 ERA and 1.234 WHIP in 13 starts. He’s walked only 12 batters and struck out 75 in 71 1/3 innings.

Lynn has allowed two runs or fewer in four of his last six starts. He faced the Orioles on June 25 and surrendered five earned runs and six total in 6 2/3 innings.

Jorge Mateo hit a solo home run.

Lynn has a career 3.89 ERA and 1.373 WHIP in eight games against the Orioles.

The White Sox have stranded 27 runners in two games of the series.
