Orioles vs Blue Jays lineups: 6/12/19
The Orioles are coming off a big win against the Toronto Blue Jays behind the arm of their unlikely ace, John Means.
This evening they send David Hess to the mound with the hopes that he can match or top Means’ performance.
Hess’ numbers on the year do not paint a promising picture. The 25-year-old right-hander is 1-8 on the season with an ERA of 7.08 and 50 strikeouts in 51 innings. Hess has not had a win since April 1, and the Orioles have not had a win in a game in which he has pitched since May 7. The team is 2-11 in games that Hess has made an appearance.
On the hill for Toronto, Derek Law will be the opener before giving way to Edwin Jackson. Law has a 5.89 ERA on the year, striking out 19 in 18.1 innings.
Jackson has pitched in 19.1 innings this season, posting an 11.90 ERA in his five starts. This will be Jackson’s first relief appearance of the year.
Chance Sisco will play DH for the Orioles and bat cleanup. Chris Davis is not in the lineup, as Renato Nunez mans first base. Of note for the Blue Jays, Cavin Biggio, son of Hall of Famer Craig Biggio, will lead off for Toronto and play second. This means that the Blue Jays have children of two Hall of Famers in the same lineup. The other is none other than Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
Lineups for both teams are listed below. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m., and the game can be seen on MASN.
