Orioles lineup vs. Blue Jays

The Orioles conclude their four-game series tonight with the Blue Jays by starting Kyle Stowers in left field and using Gunnar Henderson as the designated hitter.

Austin Hays is on the bench.

Tyler Wells was reinstated from the 15-day injured list and gets the start instead of Dean Kremer. This is Wells’ first game with the Orioles since straining his left oblique on July 27.

No word on what happens to Kremer.

Wells has made seven career appearance against Toronto, the first six in relief last summer, and allowed nine runs and 16 hits in 12 2/3 innings. He held the Jays to one run in six innings in a June start at Rogers Centre.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is 2-for-7 with two doubles and two RBIs against Wells. Bo Bichette is 2-for-8 with two RBIs.

Bichette has tied a Blue Jays record with four home runs in a two-game span. He’s batting .593 (16-for-27) with three doubles, five home runs, 14 RBIs and 10 runs scored during a six-game hitting streak.

The Orioles are 7-5 against the Jays. They’re also 53-1 this season when leading after the sixth inning.

Adley Rutschman’s 28 doubles are third-most by an Orioles rookie behind Eddie Murray (29 in 1977), and Cal Ripken, Jr. (32 in 1982).

Cedric Mullins is the seventh player in club history with multiple seasons of at least 30 stolen bases, and the first since Brian Roberts in 2006-09.

Jorge Mateo went from home to third base on last night’s triple in 11.10 seconds, the second-fastest tracked time this season, per MLB.com’s Sarah Langs.
