Trey Mancini is back in the lineup tonight with a left-hander opposing the Orioles.

Mancini is batting fifth as the designated hitter against the Blue Jays’ Francisco Liriano.

Nolan Reimold is in left field and Mark Trumbo is playing right. Chris Davis continues to bat second.

The Orioles trail the Blue Jays in the all-time series 278-320. They’re 159-143 at home and 119-177 in Toronto, the latter stat being the greater concern at the moment.

The Orioles are 2-6 at Rogers Centre this season following last night’s 5-1 loss. They’ve posted one winning record in Toronto since 2005 and have gone 31-69 in that span.
