The Baltimore Orioles (22-29) are starting to see the future of their franchise starting to shine in the last few games that they played. Recently they were able to call up Maryland-native Bruce Zimmerman to make his first Major League Baseball start for the team, but sadly it was in a 10-6 loss in the second game of a Double Header to the Tampa Bay Rays (33-18) in Major League Baseball action on Thursday.
Zimmerman went three innings, striking out two batters and giving up four hits, in what was an emotional day for not only himself but his family. Baltimore was able to see some really good offensive contributions especially from another piece of what will be their bright future in Ryan Mountcastle, who had an RBI double in the game.
In the first game against the Rays, the Orioles got a chance to see Dean Kremer, who is the team’s No. 10 prospect per MLB Pipeline strike out six and walk three in five innings of work.
The Future is looking bright for this Baltimore squad who looks to continue to make some noise as the 2020 Major League Baseball Season comes to an end.
The Orioles will continue a five-game series against the very tough Tampa Bay Rays with a game on Friday night. Baltimore will be sending Alex Cobb (1-4, 5.03 ERA) to the mound to take on Tampa Bay starter Tyler Glasnow (3-1, 4.47 ERA).
