Orioles vs. Nationals- first half finale
Greetings from Camden Yards, where the Orioles will close the first half with the series finale against the Nationals. Chris Davis, who was a late scratch with a stomach bug on Saturday night, is back in the lineup for the rubber match.
As a reminder, the O’s will have pitching prospect Zach Davies in this afternoon’s Futures Game as part of Team USA. MLB.com will have exclusive coverage of the game in Cincinnati. It can be seen live on MLB Network and MLB.com and can be followed live on MLB.com’s Gameday. You can also check Orioles.com later for an O’s specific story on Davies.
You can also check Orioles.com throughout the All-Star Break for exclusive on-site coverage of the O’s four All-Stars in Tuesday’s game as well as Manny Machado’s performance in Monday’s Home Run Derby. MLB.com has a great team of beat reporters, national reporters and columnists already there who are on hand to capture all of the best moments, and there will be plenty of Oriole-specific coverage on Orioles.com.
I’ll also have a midterm report mid-week with a recap of the first half and a lookahead to the second half of the season which should (hopefully) be enough to satisfy your baseball fix until I land in Detroit Friday morning. The blog and endless stream of Twitter updates, that will go on through today’s game, will also pick back up when I land in Detroit.
Here are your lineups for today…
