Kyle Bradish got the start and took the loss for the Baltimore Orioles this afternoon at Rogers Centre. However Gunnar Henderson proved once again (and for the second straight game) that he’s going to be one of the guys to lead this team moving onward. Bradish’s line: 4.2 IP, 6 H, 5 R, (3 earned), 1 BB, 3 K.
The O’s surrendered a run in the first on a sac fly-RBI. Springer added a two-RBI single in the second, and the O’s trailed 3-0. However the O’s tried to make a game of it. They put two runners on in the third, and Gunnar Henderson’s two-RBI double cut the lead to 3-2.
But the O’s found the game out of reach in the fifth. Tapia’s bases-clearing double gave them a 6-2 lead. Two of those runs were unearned due to an error, but obviously they all counted.
Terrin Vavra would add an RBI-single in the eighth, but the O’s fell, 6-3. Gunnar Henderson was the runner who scored there late. Since coming up, he’s put the rest of the league on notice that he’s going to be a force for years to come. Even though Toronto’s taken the first two games of this series, they’ve certainly gotten the message that Henderson’s the future of Orioles’ baseball.
The series concludes tomorrow afternoon at Rogers Centre. Dean Kremer gets the start for the O’s, and he’ll be opposed by Toronto’s Alek Manoah. Game time is set for just after 1:30 PM.
