The Orioles and Royals lineups in the series finale

The Orioles have reached the end of their homestand. A make-up game today against the Royals, followed by their flight to St. Louis.

Tyler Nevin starts at third base after playing right field yesterday in Game 2.

Trey Mancini is the first baseman and Ryan Mountcastle is the designated hitter.

Anthony Bemboom is contagious.

Cedric Mullins is 13 for 36 (.361) with five doubles and two homers during an eight-game hitting streak.

Chris Owings, on the bench today, became the first Oriole last night to walk three times in a game since Trey Mancini on May 16, 2021 against the Yankees.

Wide receiver Robinson Chirinos was 0 for 21 heading into his eighth single in Game 2.

Tyler Wells was ruled out at this afternoon’s game and makes his first career start and fourth appearance against the Royals. He pitched 2 1/3 scoreless innings in 2021.

Orioles starters have allowed two or fewer earned runs in 12 of 15 home games.

Right-hander Carlos Hernández, who was scheduled to start Friday before consecutive rains, allowed 12 earned runs and 13 total through 18 innings. He allowed 24 hits, walked 10 batters and struck out eight.

The Orioles are 15-6 against the Royals at Camden Yards since 2015.
