BALTIMORE — There’s a verdict in the David Ortiz-Kevin Gregg suspension situation.

Ortiz and Gregg have had their punishments reduced to three games by Major League Baseball and will begin serving their suspensions tonight. Thus, neither will be eligible to play in this series, a factor that figures to diminish the chances of any carryover from the contentious four-game series in Fenway from July 7-10.

 Here are the lineups:

RED SOX (57-36)
Ellsbury DH
Pedroia 2B
Gonzalez 1B
Youkilis 3B
Reddick CF
Crawford LF
Saltalamacchia C
Drew RF
Scutaro SS

Pitching: RHP Tim Wakefield (5-3, 4.74)

ORIOLES (38-54)
Hardy SS
Markakis RF
Jones CF
Wieters C
Lee 1B
Reynolds 3B
Reimold DH
Pie LF
Andino 2B

Pitching: RHP Brad Bergesen (1-6, 5.65)
