John Means will take the hill looking to pick up a birthday victory. The now 26-year-old has impressed early this year, and could tighten his grip on a rotation spot with another strong outing.

The Orioles offense hopes to pick up where they left off after an impressive 9-1 victory last night. You can relive the offensive explosion with Andrea SK’s article here.

Chris Davis will return to the bench after smacking his second homer of the season last night. While Davis’s bat is heating up, his lifetime numbers against White Sox starter Ervin Santana leave a lot to be desired.

Renato Núñez will give first base another try, while Trey Mancini serves as the designated hitter. Stevie Wilkerson will take left, while Joey Rickard mans centerfield. Pedro Severino will catch Means.

  1. Jonathan Villar SS
  2. Trey Mancini DH
  3. Dwight Smith Jr. LF
  4. Renato Núñez 1B
  5. Rio Ruz 3B
  6. Stevie Wilkerson RF
  7. Joey Rickard CF
  8. Hanser Alberto 2B
  9. Pedro Severino C
