GameThread for Baltimore Orioles at Cincinnati Reds, Apr 19, 2017 7:10 PM EDT

Birdland turns its eyes to Ubaldo Jimenez this evening, wondering if he can keep the Orioles from losing their first series of the season.

Let's not have a repeat of last night, huh? Of course, with Ubaldo Jimenez on the mound you can't really safely hope for anything good.

Since the Orioles are playing in the godforsaken league that refuses to get with the times and add a designated hitter (and because Seth Smith is hurting), tonight we have the distinct joy of watching both Trey Mancini and Mark Trumbo playing outfield positions at the same time. There is no freeing Hyun Soo Kim with a lefty on the mound, and I guess whatever defensive benefit that Craig Gentry brings to the table was determined not to be worth it.

Let's go O's!
