The Yankees play the Baltimore Orioles at 7:15 p.m. EST on Saturday at Camden Yards in the second game of the series. The Yankees lost the first game of the series and will look to avoid losing their first series since they lost three out of four to the Oakland Athletics from May 28-31.

Chase Headley is back in the lineup after having to leave yesterday’s game in the fifth inning since he was hit by a grounder in his upper thigh. Mason Williams will make his second consecutive start in center field after hitting a homer for his first major-league hit last night. Jacob Lindgren (5.14 ERA in seven innings over seven games) was sent down to Triple-A Scranton this afternoon to work on his weaknesses and Jose Ramirez, who has a 2.25 ERA in 28 innings pitched with the RailRiders, was called up from Triple-A to be another pitcher who can give Joe Girardi some length.

Alex Rodriguez, who has 1,999 career RBIs going into the game, will look to become the third player with 2,000 RBIs. Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron are the only ones who have driven in more than 2,000 runs.

Here is the lineup for tonight’s game:

Brett Gardner LF

Chase Headley 3B

Alex Rodriguez DH

Mark Teixeira 1B

Brian McCann C

Carlos Beltran RF

Didi Gregorius SS

Stephen Drew 2B

Mason Williams CF
