To the general amazement of ball fans, the Orioles are the hottest team in major league baseball. The Baltimore team won their eighth straight game by beating the Los Angeles Angels 9-5 on Sunday at Oriole Park.
By virtue of that winning streak, Brandon Hyde's men are just one game away from reaching the .500 mark and they are just four games behind the Boston Red Sox and second in the league. East section of the American.
In addition, this is the first time since 2005 that the Orioles have enjoyed such a long winning streak.
In addition to having fun at the expense of the Angels' gunners in the duel of the day, the crowd-favorite sluggers were able to count on an inspired start from Austin Voth (1-1) on the mound. He allowed just two earned runs and four hits in five innings, striking out six batters.
Down 2-0 in the fourth inning, the Orioles got the ball rolling for the costs of José Suarez (1-3). Ryan Mountcastle hit a productive double before heading home on Ramon Urias' two-run single, then Rougned Odor doubled the lead.
Despite a late push punctuated by the long ball from Max Stassi, the Angels were unable to close the gap and had to admit defeat.
Taijuan Walker Excels in Loss
In New York, pitcher Taijuan Walker outdid himself, but because he couldn't count on the offensive support of his teammates, the Mets went down 2-0 to the Miami Marlins.
Walker allowed just three hits in seven innings on the mound, in addition to passing seven opponents in the mitt. However, meanwhile, the crowd favorites were unable to demystify Sandy Alcantara, who allowed no runs in seven innings of work.
It was ultimately a bad pitch from catcher Tomas Nido that cost the Mets the win. The error allowed Billy Hamilton to score the first run of the game, then Luke Williams hit a productive single to provide a cushion for the Florida team.
Tommy Hunter (0-1) added a defeat on his record after this difficult tenth round, while Richard Bleier (1-1) signed a first victory this season by being perfect in ninth.
