The Baltimore Orioles lost to the Boston Red Sox by a score of 11-6 on Saturday in a game that saw Pat Valaika make his MLB pitching debut. Were it not for a Ramon Urias error, Valaika would have retired the Red Sox three up-three down.

Valaika’s pitching line was 1.0 inning pitched, 4 batters faced and 5 pitches (4 strikes) thrown.

The game was not as close as the final score may have suggested. Two ninth inning batters hit by a pitch and a walk by Boston pitcher Austin Brice allowed Austin Hays (2 for 5, 1 run scored, 2 RBI) to come through with a 2 RBI single.

Freddy Galvis (1 for 3, 1 run scored, 1 RBI) homered in the 2nd inning.

Cedric Mullins went 1 for 4 with 1 run scored, 1 walk and a stolen base.

Oriole starter Zac Lowther took the loss in his first MLB start. He finished with a line of 2.1 IP, 7 runs, 7 hits, 2 BB, 3 K and a homerun allowed to Michael Chavis.

2021 Record: 15-18
