The Orioles will look to pick up their second straight victory this afternoon against the Giants. The Orioles haven’t won two in a row in almost a month (May 6th), and can take the series with a victory this afternoon.

Austin Wynns is back behind the plate and will hit ninth. Stevie Wilkerson will play center, while Dwight Smith Jr. and DJ Stewart handle the other outfield duties. Hanser Alberto has second base, and Rio Ruiz will man third. Trey Mancini will play first, and Renato Núñez will serve as the designated hitter.

The game should feature a lower scoring first inning than last night, but with Hess on the mound you never know. The 25-year-old righty is still looking for his second victory of the season. He’s 1-6 with a 6.71 ERA, and his dominant April start against the Blue Jays feels like a lifetime ago.

Orioles Lineup:

  1. Jonathan Villar SS
  2. Trey Mancini 1B
  3. Dwight Smith Jr. LF
  4. Renato Núñez DH
  5. DJ Stewart RF
  6. Stevie Wilkerson CF
  7. Rio Ruiz 3B
  8. Hanser Alberto 2B
  9. Austin Wynns C

Starter: RHP David Hess
