Pearce batting second again tonight

For the second time in three nights, Steve Pearce will start in left field for the Orioles and bat second behind leadoff hitter Nick Markakis.

Manny Machado remains in the seventh slot after breaking his 0-for-18 slump with a double last night.

Markakis needs two more hits to tie Ken Singleton for sixth on the Orioles’ all-time list with 1,455. He’s 4-for-12 lifetime against Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchison.
