Orioles @ White Sox lineups and pregame notes

Greetings from Chicago, where the Orioles will kick off a week-long stay that includes an off day on Thursday and series against the White Sox and Cubs.

The Orioles rotation for this three-game White Sox set is Bud Norris, Chris Tillman and Wei-Yin Chen and Chicago will counter with Chris Sale, Jose Quintana and Hector Noesi.

The Orioles have the best record in baseball since June 30 and are 28-13 with a 2.96 ERA over that stretch.

Chicago native T.J. McFarland, who had a small cheering section here last year, said he doesn’t expect as many friends and family this series and estimated he’d have about 10 for tonight’s game.

Here are your lineups, with Chris Davis at third base again and both Steve Pearce and Delmon Young in the lineup…
