Orioles and Angels lineups

Pedro Álvarez is starting at third base tonight and Mark Trumbo is serving as the designated hitter as the Orioles try again to win a road game outside the Bronx.

Chris Davis has moved up to fifth in the lineup.

Jace Peterson is starting at second base after last night’s pinch-hit, three-run triple. Chance Sisco is back behind the plate after his collision with Alvarez.

The Angels are starting right-hander Jaime Barria, a 21-year-old rookie who’s 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA and 1.429 WHIP in two starts. He’s allowed three runs and six hits in seven innings, with four walks, four strikeouts and a hit batter.

In his last start on April 22, Barria faced the Giants and allowed two runs and five hits in two innings before leaving with his pitch count at 77. So far, right-handers are batting .333 (3-for-9) against him and left-handers are hitting .167 (3-for-18).

Barria registered a 2.92 ERA and 1.135 WHIP in three starts over 12 1/3 innings at Triple-A Salt Lake.

All three of the Orioles’ road victories this season came at Yankee Stadium. They’re 3-12 away from Camden Yards.

The Orioles have been outscored 31-10 in the first inning this season. They’ve scored most of their runs (20) in the seventh inning.

Manny Machado is 10-for-25 (.400) with 13 RBIs with runners in scoring position, which ranks sixth in the American League.

Davis is 6-for-19 (.316) with one home runs and six RBIs with runners in scoring position.

Opponents are 3-for-35 against Rule 5 pick Pedro Araujo in two-strike counts.

Mychal-Givens-throwing-orange-sidebar.jpgMychal Givens hasn’t allowed a run against the Angels in five career appearances over 6 2/3 innings. They’re 4-for-22 against him.

Richard Bleier’s 18 innings out of the bullpen are tied with former Orioles farmhand Josh Hader for the most in baseball among left-handed relievers.

Bleier has stranded all eight inherited runners. Opponents are 1-for-18 (.056) against him with runners in scoring position and 3-for-27 (.111) with runners on base.

Right-handers are 6-for-41 (.146) against Miguel Castro. Left-handers are 9-for-26 (.346).

Darren O’Day has registered a 5.79 ERA in four road games this season and a 2.57 ERA in seven home games.

On this date in 1982, Mike Flanagan faced the minimum 27 batters as the Orioles defeated the Mariners 6-0 at Memorial Stadium. Flanagan gave up three hits and walked a batter‚ but two double plays‚ a pickoff and a caught stealing erased the baserunners.

RIP, Flanny.
