The Orioles' lineup Wednesday night had left fielder Nate McLouth hitting leadoff, dropping right fielder Nick Markakis to third in a move that could become more commonplace this season depending on the opposing pitcher. "[It's] based on pitchers, but also based on our guys' skills, where they are in the season," manager Buck Showalter said. "A lot of it has to do with presenting as good of a challenge as we can, not only for the starter, but for the bullpen. First thing we need to do is figure out a way to get into the bullpen, and obviously it's not a very good bullpen to get into."
