Sunday afternoon Orioles game thread: vs. Rays, 1:35

After falling to Tampa Bay in Adley Rutschman’s debut, the Orioles will hope to earn their first win with the heralded prospect in the lineup.

So Adley Day came and went, and there was one thing missing.

Adley Rutschman made his debut last night, and even picked up his first hit when he tripled (some generous scoring there, but an extra-base hit nonetheless) to right in his third at-bat. So that was awaited and exciting.

The one caveat? The O’s lost the game.

Well, today they can try to make up for it and earn their first win with Rutschman in the lineup. After catching in his debut, Rutschman will be the designated hitter this afternoon. Ryan Mountcastle also slides up a spot into the cleanup role.

Spenser Watkins is on the bump. He’s 0-1 with a 5.10 ERA, plagued by a poor May (8.76 ERA) after a strong April.
