Free Birds

Orioles 8, Mariners 4 : Free Birds – The O’s snap a season long 10 game skid using the long ball to take down the Mariners in Seattle. Jonathan Villar hits a 3-run shot (#9) in the 4th & Anthony Santander blasts a 2-run blast (#2) to increase the lead in the 6th. Andrew Cashner goes 6 innings, allowing just 2 runs en route to his team leading 7th win. Cashner gets some much needed defensive help as CF Keon Broxton takes away a pair of hits in the 4th inning & the O’s defense shows up all day. Domingo Santana homers (#17) in the 8th for Seattle, his 4th homer in 5 games. Pedro Severino increases his hitting streak to 7 games w/ a single in the 4th & adds a sacfly in the 7th to add some insurance. Jimmy Yacabonis, Josh Rogers & Mychal Givens each work an inning in relief.
Baltimore will look to win back to back games for the first time since May 6 in today’s series finale.
