Orioles @ Giants lineups and pregame notes

Greetings from AT&T Park one more time as the Orioles, fresh off yesterday’s 3-2 loss, will play the series rubber match.

*Wilson Betemit will continue his rehab at the team’s High-A affiliate in Frederick while Lew Ford, who is coming back from sports hernia surgery, will report to Double-A Bowie on Tuesday.

*Through Casey Cares’ Celebration Vacation program and Christina and Nick Markakis, a Casey Cares 10 year old boy, Kevin, and his father were treated to two Orioles-Giants games, hotel, and round trip airfare to San Francisco this weekend.

Kevin is on treatment for Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH), a rare disorder of dendritic cells.  While LCH is not a cancer, it typically requires treatment with chemotherapy similar to that used to treat many childhood cancers. Kevin is an Orioles fan and he and his dad, David, were able to spend time cheering on their favorite team on Friday and Saturday.

*The Orioles’ errorless game on Saturday marked their 88th of the season, which is nine more than the next closest teams, the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays. <p>

*Chris Davis is the 13th player in Oriole history to drive in 109 runs. The mark would have led 42 teams in Orioles history and puts Davis on pace to drive in 152 runs, which would break Miguel Tejada’s club record (150) set in 2004.
