The Orioles were no-hit through seven and two-thirds innings. A crowd of 17,763 saw new Oriole Andrew Cashner allow four earned runs on six hits.

Player of Game:
Tim Beckham

Starting Pitching:
– Andrew Cashner threw 88 pitches (53 strikes) while struggling through five innings, striking out five and allowing three home runs and two walks. He used a 91-95 MPH fastball and a sinker. His slider was a strike-out pitch.

Highlighted hitting moments:
Jonathan Schoop singled to break up the no combined no-hitter with two out in the eighth inning.
– In 9th, Tim Beckham homered with a runner aboard to remove the shoutout.

Highlighted pitching moments:
– Pedro Araujo pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout in his major league debut.
– Miguel Castro duplicated that effort.
– Nestor Cortes Jr. pitched in the majors for the first time. Two innings, two walks and two strikeouts allowing a run on three hits.

Highlighted defensive plays
– Caleb Joseph made a poor throw on a ball four that advance a runner and lead to a run on a double play ball. It was ruled an error.
Manny Machado dives and allows a ball off the top of his glove. Would have been a tough play to make so it was ruled a hit.
– Trey Mancini did not get to a catchable ball at the wall which cost Cashner at least one run. Not an error.
Eddie Rosario robbed Trey Mancini of a hit in the 6th inning with two men on base.

Michael Williams has been an Orioles fan since the sixties when his family moved from Reading Pa to York Pa. Also, the Phillies and 1964. His Grandfather got the Chef Boyardee box seats and Mike was hooked. Brooks Robinson calls him not a fan, but a friend. He has been a member of the Orioles Hangout since early in the New Millennium and Managing Editor since 2011. Or so it seems. He lives in Harrisburg PA, down by the river. Not currently in a van.
