Thursday night Orioles game thread: vs Mariners, 7:05 pm

Birdland is sad about Grayson, but we must press on

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Baltimore Orioles Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

Well, friends. If you didn’t hear the news. Grayson Rodriguez is out with a lat strain. The good news is that it’s all muscle, nothing wrong with his shoulder. The bad news is we don’t yet know how long he’ll be out, only that it’ll be for a while. I’m sad, you’re sad, Grayson is sad.

But the show must go on! And that means the Orioles are trying to wrap up a series win against the Mariners tonight. They lost game one of the series 10-0 and won the 9-2. Doe that mean tonight’s score will be 2-0? If so, let’s hope the Orioles are the ones with the 2.

Steady veteran Jordan Lyles is on the mound for the Orioles. He went a season-short 4.1 innings in his last start, so let’s hope he has at least six in him tonight. Starting for the M’s is Chris Flexen, who hasn’t been very impressive this year but is coming off his best start of the season with 7 innings and 1 run against the Astros.
