Chris Davis batting seventh, playing third base in Sunday's series finale

The Baltimore Sun

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians send right-hander Danny Salazar to the mound Sunday as they attempt to sweep the American League East-leading Orioles in the three-game series.

There was a little mixup on the media's part with the Orioles lineup Sunday, but this one is the real deal.

It has Steve Pearce and Delmon Young starting against a right-hander. It also has Chris Davis, whose average has dipped to a season-low .191 (not including the first two games of the year), batting seventh and playing third base. Nick Hundley is in at catcher.

Here are the lineups for both teams:


Nick Markakis RF
Steve Pearce 1B
Adam Jones CF
Nelson Cruz DH
Delmon Young LF
J.J. Hardy SS
Chris Davis 3B
Nick Hundley C
Jonathan Schoop 2B
Kevin Gausman RHP


Michael Bourn CF
Jose Ramirez SS
Michael Brantley LF
Carlos Santana 1B
Jason Kipnis 2B
Yan Gomes C
Lonnie Chisenhall 3B
Zach Walters DH
Chris Dickerson RF
Danny Salazar RHP
