Orioles vs. Indians Game 1

Greetings from Progressive Field, where the Orioles kick off a two-city, three-series trip with stops in Cleveland and Chicago (White Sox and Cubs)/

Shortstop J.J. Hardy is back in the lineup after missing three games with a strain left thumb suffered on Saturday. Hardy, who was out early taking some batting practice and testing his thumb, said he spoke with manager Buck Showalter and is good to go. He is batting sixth.

Chris Davis is still in the second spot in Manny Machado’s absence with Ryan Flaherty playing third. Machado is with the team –along with catcher Matt Wieters– and will continue his rehab on the road.
