Orioles/Reds lineup and pregame tidbits

*Blake Davis makes another start at second base tonight after committing a costly error against the Pirates on Wednesday.  Manager Buck Showalter said he wants to give Davis another opportunity to succeed.

*Alfredo Simon (strained right hamstring) pitched today in Sarasota without any problems.  He is scheduled to throw 1-2 innings for Double-A Bowie as early as Sunday.  He is eligible to come off the disabled list and join the Orioles as early as Tuesday.

*Jake Arrieta (elbow inflammation) will throw a bullpen session today and Saturday.  Unless he experiences problems in those sessions, he will make his scheduled start Wednesday against the Cardinals.

*Brian Roberts (concussion-like symptoms) will get his wisdom teeth pulled

*This will be the first meeting between the two clubs since June 2005
