One day after the rain postponed the game between the Orioles and the Washington Nationals at Nationals Park, the two teams are scheduled to meet at Camden Yards tonight. Same pitchers, slightly different lineup now that the designated hitter is back. Steve Pearce returns to the lineup for the Orioles, batting second and playing left field. Nelson Cruz returns to the designated hitter spot. He is batting fourth. For the Nationals, Ryan Zimmerman will serve as the designated hitter.

The Orioles ideally wanted to work right-hander Bud Norris back into the rotation gradually as he returned from his trip to the disabled list with a right groin strain, and a key caveat of that in the eyes of manager Buck Showalter was getting Norris two starts before the All-Star break. Tuesday's rainout at Nationals Park put a wrench in those plans, postponing Norris' first start in 2 1/2 weeks until the Orioles' return to Camden Yards on Wednesday against the Washington Nationals.

In an emergency, left-hander Wei-Yin Chen could pitch out of the bullpen for the Orioles tonight against the Washington Nationals at Camden Yards, manager Buck Showalter said in his pregame news conference. Right-hander Bud Norris will make his first start for the club tonight since returning from the 15-day disabled list, but if the appearance is cut short, the Orioles could turn to Chen in order to preserve their bullpen. Chen hasn't started since Thursday against the Texas Rangers, when he went six innings and gave up two earned runs.

Washington Nationals outfielder Nate McLouth said he was sitting on the bench at Nationals Park on Monday night, and a weird feeling took over. His new team was playing against his old team. And though that has happened before for McLouth - he has been on four major league clubs - this one seemed different. “It was a little strange. I was here so recently, and had that [Orioles] uniform on so recently, and it's a very similar team to last year and the year before, so it was a little strange,” McLouth said.

For proof of the expanding reach of lacrosse around the globe, look no further than the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships, which begin Thursday night in the Denver suburbs. A record 38 teams, representing nations from six continents, will take part in the quadrennial event over the next 10 days at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. That's an impressive number for an event that began with only four countries in 1967 and had just six as recently as 1994.

Sharing the bounty of America's farms is a lifesaving tradition almost as old at the Republic itself. In 1812, President James Madison sent emergency aid to earthquake victims in Venezuela. President Herbert Hoover started a large feeding program in Russia during the 1920s. And after World War II, President Harry Truman launched the Marshall Plan, named for George C. Marshall, which delivered tons of food to the people of Western Europe. In times of emergency, the U.S. government and the American people respond vigorously and generously.

After hitting a two-run home run in the 11th inning Monday, Chris Davis is back in the Orioles' starting lineup Tuesday against Washington Nationals right-hander Doug Fister. The hot-hitting Steve Pearce is out of the lineup for the second consecutive game because the Orioles have no designated hitter in interleague play in a National League ballpark. Nelson Cruz, who leads the major leagues with 28 home runs and 73 RBIs and often serves as the designated hitter, is playing left field again Tuesday.

WASHINGTON  - In an incredibly close contest between two evenly matched teams Monday night, the Orioles picked up an 8-2 victory in 11 innings against the Washington Nationals and, potentially, something much more important. The Orioles are hoping they also discovered a resurgent Chris Davis. The struggling slugger who had just two singles in his previous 38 at-bats, hit a full-count fastball from reliever Craig Stammen over the right-center wall to jumpstart a six-run 11 th inning.  After leading the majors with 53 last year, Davis homered for just the 14 th time in 2014 and the first since his walkoff June 23 against the Chicago White Sox. “When we stopped them the inning before, I knew the next inning I was coming up. And with Nelson (Cruz)

WASHINGTON -- Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams has seen Buck Showalter make bold late-game decisions before. The Orioles manager, who was the Arizona Diamondbacks' skipper and coached Williams there from 1998-2000, once made one of the gutsiest calls in baseball history. On May 28, 1998, Showalter's Diamondbacks were clinging to a two-run lead in the bottom of the ninth with the bases loaded and Barry Bonds stepping to the plate. Instead of pitching to the powerful San Francisco Giants slugger, Showalter elected to walk him intentionally and concede a run.  The next batter, Brent Mayne, worked a full count and then lined out to deep right-center field, sealing a Diamondbacks win. “It takes a great deal of intestinal fortitude, I guess is the right way to put it, to do something like that,” Williams said before Monday's game.

WASHINGTON -- Thanks to a persistent rainstorm Tuesday night, the budding Orioles-Nationals rivalry has been moved 50 miles up the road, but it will make a return appearance to the nation's capital in August. Tuesday's finale of a two-game series at Nationals Park was postponed after a two-hour, 30-minute rain delay. It will be made up Aug. 4 in Washington - no time for that game has been announced yet. According to Nationals manager Matt Williams, a day-night doubleheader in Washington and Baltimore this week was never in consideration because both teams have the common day off in the Baltimore-Washington area in August.
