Hardy scratched from lineup with sprained thumb

The Orioles announced that shortstop J.J. Hardy was scratched from the Sunday’s starting lineup with a sprained left thumb shortly before they took the field for the finale against the Cardinals.

Hardy, who entered the day batting .283 with six homers and 40 RBIs, was on the field for pre game batting practice and was initially listed as batting sixth. He was replaced by Ryan Flaherty, who took over the eighth spot. It’s not known how Hardy suffered the injury and the severity of the sprain.

Once again a poorly managed game from a Mgr I respect. Just wish Buck would call for a sacrifice as he just now should have. Davis must be benched or traded. Schoop must be sent down — his bad hitting is affecting his defense.let Davis strike out for another team. Maybe trade for Reimhold who cab play 1st and not strike out as much. Oops– Schoop with another defensive miscue!
