Pre-game notes: Orioles vs. White Sox

The Baltimore Sun

The Orioles are in Chicago tonight, their second stop in their three-city, 10-game road trip.

The Birds took two of three in Toronto over the weekend, but the 9-2 series-finale loss to the Blue Jays definitely left a bad taste heading to the Windy City.

Speaking of wind, it was very windy coming into U.S. Cellular Field today. We'll see if that becomes a factor. The Orioles played three games with the roof closed in Toronto, and the ball was flying out of the place.

Nolan Reimold is out of the lineup for a second straight day. That's partially because of a lingering cramp, Buck Showalter said, but because he also wants to get Endy Chavez in the lineup. Reimold, who homered in back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday, said he was able to play.

Jake Arrieta will make his third start of the season, working on normal rest.

Here are the lineups:

LF Endy Chavez
SS J.J. Hardy
RF Nick Markakis
CF Adam Jones
C Matt Wieters
DH Nick Johnson
3B Mark Reynolds
1B Chris Davis
2B Robert Andino
RHP Jake Arrieta

White Sox
Alejandro De Aza CF
Brent Morel 3B
Adam Dunn DH
Paul Konerko 1B
A.J. Pierzynski C
Alex Rios RF
Alexei Ramirez SS
Dayan Viciedo LF
Gordon Beckham 2B
Philip Humber RHP
