David Hess allowed no hits for six and a third innings and then Manager Brandon Hyde pulled him to watch Pedro Araujo walk a batter and allow a Randal Grichuk two run homer.

Jonathan Villar and Trey Mancini homered. Chris Davis walked with the bases loaded, Trey Mancini hit a sacrifice fly and a run scored on a wild pitch.

Araujo’s leftover rule five status required that he be used only with a six run deficit but Hyde had no option but to try him with a six run lead.

Mike Wright pitched the eighth inning. He allowed a solo homer. After giving up a single in the ninth, Wright was replaced by Richard Bleier.

Richie Martin made a fantastic play on a ball deflected off Bleier’s leg for the first out.  Villar and Rickard made a horrible play to put runners on second and third. A sac fly left the Orioles clinging to a two run lead. Teoscar Hernandez represented the tying run. He drove in a run with a triple. Lourdes Gurriel fell behind 0-2. He struck him out on a high swinging fastball for the save.

Trey Mancini made a good sliding play during the no-hit portion of the multi act event.

Michael Williams
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.
