Game Thread: Pirates at Orioles, 1:05 pm EST

Hello from the National Archives in D.C.! I’ll be here today and tomorrow doing historian-like things (research, mainly), but don’t you worry – you’ll get your updates! I’ve got internet access here and I’m ready to play. As I read and write about Civil War soldiers, I’ll also be reading and writing about our beloved O’s.

Speaking of those kids, they’ll be playing the Pirates today at home. Here are your lineups!

Orioles:
Randy Winn, LF
Felix Pie, CF
Nick Markakis, RF
Vladimir Guerrero, DH
Luke Scott, 1B
Mark Reynolds, 3B
Matt Wieters, C
Robert Andino, 2B
Cesar Izturis, SS
Jake Arrieta, RHP

Pirates:
Ciriaco 2B
Bowker 1B
McCutchen CF
Alvarez 3B
Diaz LF
Pearce RF
Rodriguez SS
Jaramillo C
Correia RHP

Your pitchers today besides Arrieta and Correia (lots of double Rs!) are Jeremy Accardo and Jason Berken for the O’s and Evan Meek, Scott Olsen and Joe Beimel for the Pirates. Major thanks to my co-G9er Kristy Robinson for the Pirates lineup!

Also of note: Derrek Lee successfully hit off a tee today. This is a good sign for general humanity. Or, you know, first base.
