Lots of changes to Orioles lineup

So much for the duplicate lineups we’ve been seeing around here.

Robert Andino is batting second tonight against Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia. Steve Tolleson is serving as the designated hitter and Taylor Teagarden is behind the plate.

For the Orioles:
Nick Markakis RF
Robert Andino 2B
J.J. Hardy SS
Adam Jones CF
Mark Reynolds 1B
Lew Ford LF
Manny Machado 3B
Steve Tolleson DH
Taylor Teagarden C

Joe Saunders LHP

Andino is 8-for-20 with a double and home run lifetime against Sabathia. Jones is 13-for-38 (.342) with a double, triple, three homers and 10 RBIs. Hardy is 4-for-11.

Ford is 7-for-36 (.194) with a triple and home run.

The black clouds are rolling in and the forecast is awful. A sell-out crowd is expected and the Orioles will do everything possible to play tonight. Otherwise, we’re looking at a split doubleheader on Sunday.
