Baltimore scrambled in the ninth inning to tie the game and go on to win on Tuesday night and then did the same on Wednesday. The Orioles got four in the ninth, Trey Mancini tying the game at six with a two-run homer. He won it with a three-run bomb two innings later.
But Wade Miley couldn’t get through the third inning so it was a busy night for the bullpen. Mychal Givens eventually got the win with a scoreless 11th.
The O’s travel to DC for one game before hitting New York over the weekend. Thursday night’s game is a make-up date for a game that was rained out earlier last month. Baltimore leads the season series, 2-1.
Alec Asher has replaced Ubaldo Jimenez in the starting rotation. His numbers on the year as both a starter and reliever are quite good, a 3.62 ERA and 1.10 WHIP.
It would be nice if he could give Baltimore more than just a few innings tonight after the bullpen’s Wednesday night. Asher has it in him. He pitched into the seventh inning over the weekend against the Red Sox.
It was just one inning that nixed the Nationals’ plan for a sweep of the Dodgers but that’s what often happens against Clayton Kershaw.
Washington had a 1-0 lead from the second inning until Corey Seager tied it with a solo home run before an unearned run came in a few batters later that proved to be the game-winner.
The game ended before 3 pm on the West Coast so the Nats flew back in time to get to bed at a decent hour before a weekend at home. They’ll actually be at home for a full week before going to play the Mets next Thursday.
Four of Joe Ross’ six starts haven’t been good. Dusty Baker is sticking with his starter who has allowed nine home runs in those six starts.
