We win a series against the Astros and then we get shutout by the Orioles. I guess baseball is like that.
Chase Anderson got the start with Hyun-Jin Ryu on the IL and he continued his string of bad starts. In this one he went 6.1 innings, 7 hits, 5 earned, no walks with 7 strikeouts. He gave up 3 home runs. His ERA is now 7.71 with a 1-3 record.
Jordan Romano threw 1.2 innings of relief, giving up two more home runs. Wilmer Font pitched the ninth, getting 3 strikeouts.
On offense we managed just 3 hits. Lourdes Gurriel, Derek Fisher and Rowdy Tellez had them.
Bo Bichette had his first game off of the season. Brandon Drury played short.
Orioles starter, Keyvius Sampson, came into the game with a 6.75 ERA and left the game with a 5.79 ERA.
The Orioles got home runs from Rio Ruiz (4th), Hanser Alberto (8th), Renato Nunez (9th), Jose Iglesias (4th) and Austin Hays (12th).

Tomorrow Nate Pearson (3-2, 3.12 in 10 starts) gets the start. Orioles have Kyle Lloyd (2-3, 5.70) going.
Another five games have gone by, so let’s have the stats:
