Schoop homers twice, but O’s fall 5-2 to Twins


Jonathan Schoop may be breaking out of season long slump after homering twice, but the Orioles are the team that keeps on giving, and they fell to the Twins 5-2.

Andrew Cashner put together a quality start allowing three runs, two earned over six innings of work.

Tanner Scott relieved him in the 7th and was dominant. Using a 99-100 MPH fastball, and sweeping 91-MPH slider, Scott struck out the side. If he can find this stuff more often he could be a closer one day.

Brad Brach ensured the Orioles didn’t suffer a one run loss by allowing two runs in the 8th.
