Today's game against the Oakland A's is sold out – at least the 36,000-plus seats that are available to purchase (the upper deck is tarped). The A's will have a pre-game ceremony honoring the 40th anniversary of their 1973 World Championship.
All of that club's key players, with the exception of the late Catfish Hunter, will attend. That includes Reggie Jackson, who is being honored with a bobblehead today.
The organization released righty reliever Scott Proctor from Triple-A Norfolk and transferred right-hander Rob Delaney to Double-A Bowie. Starter
Here are today's lineups:
Orioles: McLouth 7, Machado 5, Markakis 9, Jones 8, Davis 3, Wieters DH, Hardy 6, Flaherty 4, Teagarden 2. Tillman 1.
