The Orioles are going for their second straight series win this afternoon against the Phillies.
Look for a low-scoring game today. Right-hander Jason Hammel (6-2, 2.97 ERA) heads to the mound for the Orioles. He will be opposed by left-hander Cliff Lee (0-3, 2.92), who is winless through his first three starts for the first time in his career.
Matt Wieters will get a day off from catching today, with Ronny Paulino behind the plate. Steve Pearce, who made two nice diving catches in extra innings yesterday, will start in left field.
Here are the lineups for this afternoon's game:
Orioles Robert Andino 2B J.J. Hardy SS Adam Jones CF Matt Wieters DH Ronny Paulino C Mark Reynolds 1B Steve Pearce LF Steve Tolleson 3B Endy Chavez RF Jason Hammel RHP
Phillies Jimmy Rollins SS Juan Pierre LF Hunter Pence RF Jim Thome DH Shane Victorino CF Carlos Ruiz C Ty Wigginton 3B Hector Luna 1B Michael Martinez 2B Cliff Lee LHP
