The Baltimore Orioles entered tonight’s game almost as the golden boys in a sense. 2-0 appeared to suffie, according to starter John Means. And by that I mean as a final score as an adult. Means’ line: 6.2 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 6 K.
Pedro Severino and Ryan Mountcastle both had RBI-singles in the first inning. But that didn’t seem to matter. Surely two runs scored in the first weren’t my going to stand up for the Orioles in the end…right?!
But in the end, they did! Philadelphia never really offered a threat in this game, and the two runs stood up as the game winners. Means also became the first pitcher in over ten years to smack an extra-base hit. It was that kind of night for the O’s.
The series continues tomorrow night at Citizens Bank Park. Starters for both teams are still TBD. Game time is set for just after 7 PM.
