Henderson Alvarez RHP
We already faced Alverez once this season in Toronto. He had a decent game against us going 7 innings 6 hits 3 runs 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. We did end up winning that game 6-4 though.
I hope we do better against Alverez tonight.
Another note from Roch was that " second baseman Robert Andino will leave the club after tonight's game for the birth of his third child at noon tomorrow in Miami. He will be placed on paternity leave and is expected to miss at least two games. A roster move is pending.The Orioles could decide to call up an outfielder, depending on Nolan Reimold's status. Otherwise, infielder Matt Antonelli is a good possibility."
Good for the Andinos but together with Reimold's injury that makes things difficult.

Yup, were a little shorthanded.
The Tides lineup hasn't been posted yet. If Antonelli's not in it, maybe that's a clue.
I suspect that Bill Hall's not going to be added to the Orioles' 25-man yet but because he can play 3B, 2B and all three OF positions, maybe that's a possibility.
Yes! Our leadoff batter, Chavez, led off with a single.
Double for Hardy!
