The Orioles lost 3-2 to the Nationals Tuesday night in Camden Yards. It was their fourth straight loss.

Dylan Bundy started for the O’s and surrendered a first inning home run to Nationals star Bryce Harper. The Orioles responded in the bottom half of the inning as Manny Machado homered to tie the game at 1-1.

After having the game evened up at 1, Bundy allowed the Nats to take the lead in the 2nd inning as Wilmer Difo hit an RBI single.

Nationals’ outfielder Mark Reynolds homered off Bundy to push the lead to 3-1 in the 4th inning.

In exception for the Machado home run, the Orioles struggled offensively. In the bottom of the 5th inning, Adam Jones hit an RBI double to score Chance Sisco. As the O’s cut the lead to 3-2, Jace Peterson was thrown out at home plate to end the inning.

As momentum went in Washington’s favor, the O’s failed to comeback as they went on to lose 3-2.

Bundy (3-7) allowed just three runs in six innings though allowed 11 Nationals hits. The Nats’ bullpen shut down Baltimore for the second win of the series.

The O's (17-38) look to win the final game of the series before hosting the Yankees.
