Red Sox @ Orioles lineups - June 13

Red Sox starter Felix Doubront is a left-handed pitcher, so the inclusion of Nate McLouth in the lineup instead of Steve Pearce is interesting. Additionally, Alexi Casilla is still on the bench, perhaps because his finger isn't fully healed, but who cares, really.

Most Orioles hitters who have seen Doubront do not have good numbers. Adam Jones is 2-12 without an extra base hit. Matt Wieters is hitless in 11 plate appearances off Doubront, and J.J. Hardy is hitless in 10.

On the plus side, Chris Davis has five hits, including a homer and a double, in 11 plate appearances, and Manny Machado is 3-6 with a home run.

We've seen Gausman successfully navigate a lineup with scary names when he pitched well against Detroit, holding offensive machine Miguel Cabrera hitless. And then we've seen... well, you know.

I wish I could say that I missed Nolan Reimold even a little bit.

Hey, how's the weather?

Dang.
