The Baltimore Orioles won their seventh straight game this evening, defeating Boston in the first of three at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Dean Kremer wasn’t dealing tonight as he was against Washington last week. But he pitched well enough, and stayed around long enough, to get the job done. Kremer’s line: 5.2 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 5 K.
Kremer spotted Boston a four-run lead. They got a solo homer in the second from Casas, and an RBI-single from Verdugo in the third.after in that third inning Boston drew a two-run homer from Devers. And it appeared that the Orioles’ winning streak was in jeopardy.
But the Orioles immediately chipped away. Adam Frazier’s RBI-single in the last of the third cut the lead to 4-1. The last of the fourth saw the Orioles tie the game, however. And more importantly, it saw them not surrender the lead.
Ramon Urias’ RBI-double cut the lead to 4-2 in that same fourth inning. James McCann would add an RBI-single of his own, tying the game at four. One inning later, the O’s took the lead on an RBI-single by Austin Hays. And the Birds never looked back.
As I said, Kremer stuck around long enough to qualify for the win. But the Oriole bullpen shut things down at the end. The O’s again have now won seven straight. Don’t ever sleep on this team.
The series continues tomorrow at Camden Yards. Kyle Bradish gets the start for the O’s, and he’ll be opposed by Boston’s Corey Kluber. Game time is set for just after 6:30 PM.
