Orioles lineup in Cleveland (updated)

CLEVELAND – The Orioles play their last road game of the regular season today with Heston Kjerstad serving as designated hitter and Jordan Westburg playing second base.

Gunnar Henderson is starting at third base. The outfield is Austin Hays in left, Cedric Mullins in center and Anthony Santander in right.

Kyle Gibson is 14-9 with a 5.00 ERA in 31 starts. He faced Cleveland on May 30 and allowed three runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings in an 8-5 win. He’s 4-10 lifetime against the Guardians with a 5.55 ERA and 1.647 WHIP in 22 games.

Ramón Laureano is 9-for-18 with two doubles, a triple and two home runs against Gibson. José Ramírez is 13-for-36 with three doubles and a homer.

The magic number is five to clinch the division, which can’t happen before Wednesday.

Triston McKenzie is making his third start, the other two in June. He tossed five scoreless innings with one hit and 10 strikeouts in Minnesota and allowed five runs and seven hits in five innings against the Astros.

The Guardians are activating McKenzie (elbow) from the 60-day injured list. He’s 0-2 in two career starts against the Orioles, with seven runs in 12 innings.
