It was two extremely close and competitive games at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, as the Baltimore Orioles were able to split a doubleheader against the Seattle Mariners in Major League Baseball action on Tuesday.
In the first game the Orioles just fell to the Mariners by a final of 4-3, as the Mariners were able to get on the board early thanks to homers by Ty France and Tom Murphy.
Baltimore battled back n the Bottom of the Fifth as Ramon Urias who ripped a homer to right field that cut into the Seattle lead and made the score 3-2. The O’s tied things up in the Bottom of the Seventh as DJ Stewart had an RBI single.
Seattle regained the lead in the Top of the Eighth as Kyle Seager who laced an RBI double to right field. From there the Mariners bullpen stepped up and was able to shut down the O’s offense.
The two teams met later, as they were able to make up the game that was postponed on Monday due to rain. The O’s were able to win a walk-off thriller by a final of 7-6, as the team were able to relax a bit more and find the rhythm, they needed at the plate to earn the victory.
It was in the Bottom of the Third Inning where the Orioles were able to gain that offensive rhythm, as Maikel Franco had a two-run double to left field, that made the score 4-3 in favor of Seattle. Ryan Mountcastle tied the game on a ground ball to right field.
The O’s offense kept rolling in the Bottom of the Fourth thanks to Cedric Mullins who doubled to right field. Anthony Santander lifted a sacrifice fly to left field that gave Baltimore a 6-4 lead.
It was a fun back and forth game between these two clubs, as Seattle got back into things with a homer by Sam Haggerty in the Top of the Seventh Inning. It was in the bottom of the frame that Urias laced a single to center that made the game 7-6.
For the nightcap it was the O’s bullpen turn to shut down the Mariners offense, and they did just that as the team was able to enjoy a well-earned victory.
