McLouth leading off, Ford in right field

So much for my earlier prediction that Nate McLouth wouldn’t lead off tonight against Rays left-hander Matt Moore.

McLouth is atop the order again. He’s starting in left field, with Lew Ford playing right. Chris Davis is serving as the Orioles’ designated hitter.

Left-handers are hitting .268 against Moore, compared to .234 by right-handers, which could factor into manager Buck Showalter’s lineup decisions.

For the Orioles:
Nate McLouth LF
J.J. Hardy SS
Adam Jones CF
Matt Wieters C
Mark Reynolds 1B
Chris Davis DH
Lew Ford RF
Manny Machado 3B
Robert Andino 2B

Jason Hammel RHP
