Orioles win on Mother's Day

May 12, 2019 - 9:48 pm

After close to a three hour rain delay, the Orioles and the Angels were able to complete the series at Camden Yards on Sunday.  The Angels would win the series despite having one more game to play in Baltimore.

John Means took the mound for the Orioles and started the game with a walk and a wild pitch.  After 29 pitches, Means was able to close the first inning, stranding two players.  What was maybe a little shocking to fans was the lineup on Sunday where Chris Davis batted clean-up.  The second inning consisted of scores from both Stevie Wilkerson and Chris Davis.  Both Davis and Wilkerson hit homeruns giving the Orioles a two-score lead.  

Mike Trout's first appearance at the plate was a homerun to cut Baltimore's lead 2-1.  Means was able to finish out the third inning throwing 64 pitches.  Orioles, again, put runs on the board by Dwight Smith Jr's two-run homerun.  Now Baltimore leading, 4-1.   

Means stayed on the mound through the sixth inning allowing just one run, a homerun, three walks, and four strikeouts.  Pedro Severino joined the homerun club on Sunday sending one out to left field.  

Paul Fry came in the seventh inning and Shawn Armstrong followed him appearing in the eighth inning.  Mychal Givens closed out the game finalizing the win for the Orioles. The Orioles avoided the sweep and winning the last game of the series 5-1. The Orioles are now one a seven-day road trip.  They take on the Yankees in New York tomorrow for a three-game series and Cleveland for a four-game series.  The Orioles will be back home May 20th for a four-game series against the Yankees.
