Jonathan Schoop remains the cleanup hitter tonight and Craig Gentry is playing right field as the Orioles make another attempt to find the win column.

Danny Valencia is the third baseman. Mark Trumbo is the designated hitter.

Andrew Cashner has made three career starts against the Royals and allowed three earned runs in 16 innings, but he’s lost both decisions.

Cashner is 1-4 with a 4.89 ERA and 1.526 WHIP this season in seven starts over 38 2/3 innings. The Orioles are 1-6 in his starts. He’s surrendered nine earned runs (11 total) and 13 hits with six walks in his last two outings over 8 2/3 innings.

Royals left-hander Erik Skoglund is 1-2 with a 6.84 ERA and 1.405 WHIP this season in five starts over 26 1/3 innings and 2-4 with a 7.92 ERA and 1.782 WHIP in 12 career games.

Left-handers are hitting .214 against Skoglund this year and right-handers are hitting .278. In his career, left-handers are batting .304 and right-handers .317.

The Orioles haven’t faced Skoglund before tonight. None of their current players have a plate appearance.

Cal Ripken Aberdeen hat.jpgThe short-season Single-A Aberdeen IronBirds are changing their name to the Harford County Anglers of Aberdeen from July 27-28 to celebrate Outdoor Weekend, with the county playing host to the 2018 Huk Bassmaster Elite at Upper Chesapeake Bay professional bass fishing tournament.

Don’t be confused. It’s going to be the same team. Just a different name and uniform.

In addition, Visit Harford! will host a free family festival in Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium’s parking lot on July 28-29), along with the coveted Bassmaster Elite final weigh-ins where one angler will win the $100,000 grand prize. Nice way to reel in the fans, too.

(You see what I did there.)

The Harford County Anglers of Aberdeen will don pinstripe uniforms featuring numbers with inlaid “fish scales” and new logos combining bass, baseballs and bats. A patch with the Harford County seal will appear on the back. The right sleeve will include a patch featuring an angler in a Harford County Anglers of Aberdeen bucket hat.

Beginning at 5:30 p.m. on July 27, and concluding at the end of the July 28 game, the Anglers’ game uniforms will be available for online auction at www.IronBirdsBaseball.com.

Fans can purchase single game tickets online beginning May 5 or by visiting the box office at Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium. For more information, call 410-297-9292.

This is the first time the Bassmaster Elite Series, the highest level of professional bass fishing tournaments in the country, will be hosted in Harford County.
