Manny Machado dropped to seventh in lineup; Adam Jones back in center field

The Orioles play the rubber match of their three-game series against the Boston Red Sox tonight at Camden Yards.

If third baseman Manny Machado is going to drop the appeal of his five-game suspension, it won’t happen today. He is in the lineup, dropped to seventh, and playing third base.

After two days serving as the designated hitter because of leg soreness, Adam Jones is back in center field.

One other note: Miguel Gonzalez, who is on the 15-day disabled list with a right oblique strain, will start tonight on an injury rehab assignment at Double-A Bowie. He likely will pitch just once there and join the Orioles on Sunday (when he is eligible to come off the DL) or shortly thereafter.

Here are tonight's starting lineups:


Nick Markakis RF
Steve Pearce LF
Adam Jones CF
Nelson Cruz DH
Chris Davis 1B
J.J. Hardy SS
Manny Machado 3B
Jonathan Schoop 2B
Nick Hundley C
Wei-Yin Chen LHP

Red Sox

Brock Holt LF
Xander Bogaerts 3B
Dustin Pedroia 2B
David Ortiz DH
Mike Napoli 1B
Jonny Gomes RF
A.J. Pierzynski C
Jonathan Herrera SS
Jackie Bradley Jr. CF
Rubby De La Rosa RHP
