Buck notes: Adam Jones feeling better after illness yesterday; Chris Davis is the everyday first baseman; Manny Machado is handling this well; Zach Britton two more sim games then Norfolk May 30; Darren O’Day coming along slowly. #Orioles
Here's Manny Machado, whose tour through every contending city in the bigs continued Monday in Chicago. His teammates complimented his Gucci swag and encouraged him to have fun with it. When you're 14-32, can't a distraction be a good thing? bsun.md/2x2gQIf
Jonathan Schoop struck out to end a first inning that included Adam Jones' fifth walk of the season. The Orioles saw 18 pitches. They have seen the fewest first-inning pitches of any AL team this year entering today, so that was an improvement.
Andrew Cashner has been a little erratic, yet is carrying his best fastball of the season. Four-seam averaging 94.3 mph, two-seam 93.5, per Statcast. Some hard contact off it but through two scoreless on 37 pitches. #Orioles
After tracking down José Abreu's double into the LF corner and hitting Manny Machado for a relay home to record the third out of the inning, Mancini now has six OF assists, which is tied for the most in baseball. #Orioles lead is 2-1.
Daniel Palka one-hops the CF wall for a double to open the sixth. Since the White Sox turned the lineup over a third time, Andrew Cashner has gone BB, 1B, 2B/7-6-2, 2B. It's been an issue for him. #Orioles
Another automatic double, this to Leury García, and Andrew Cashner is done. He hasn't retired any of the six batters he's faced since turning the lineup over a third time. BB, 1B, 2B/7-6-2, 2B, 1B, 2B. #Orioles up 3-2, Mychal Givens in.
