Mariners 5, Orioles 3
Winner: Walker (4-6)
Loser: Tillman (10-2)
Save: Cishek (19)
WHAT WENT WRONG: Chris Tillman lost for the first time in 10 starts against Seattle. Tillman allowed four runs and six hits in 4 2/3 innings. Tillman threw 112 pitches.
Tillman suffered his first loss in 14 starts. His only loss of the season came on Apr. 14.
WHAT WENT RIGHT: The Orioles set a major league record for most home runs in June with 56. Hyun-Soo Kim hit his third home run of the year in the seventh.
Trailing 5-1, the Orioles scored two runs in the eighth, but none in the ninth.
STREAKS COME TO AN END: Not only did Tillman’s streaks end, but the Orioles’ seven-game winning streak ended. So did Jonathan Schoop’s 11-game hitting streak,
SOME CONTINUED: Adam Jones ran his hitting streak to 11, and Manny Machado has a 10-game streak.
QUIRKY STAT: According to ESPN, the Orioles have a home run on every June 30 for 23 straight seasons, the longest streak on any one day.
NO MAGIC FROM MANNY: Machado nearly had a home run in the fourth inning, but it hit near the top of the wall. Machado took a long turn around first, and was caught trying to get back to the bag.
It was the Orioles’ first hit.
DOUBLE PLAY GONE WRONG: Machado and Schoop looked as if they had turned another acrobatic double play to end the seventh, but Seattle manager Scott Servais challenged the call. The runner was ruled safe at second, and Seattle scored its fifth run.
TRUMBO ROBBED: It wasn’t going to be a home run, but Seattle center fielder Leonys Martin took an extra-base hit from Mark Trumbo with a leaping catch in the second inning.
THE VANIMAL RETURNS: Just before gametime, the Orioles announced that they had reinstated Vance Worley and Caleb Joseph from the 15-day disabled list and purchased the contract of right-handed reliever Chaz Roe from Norfolk.
They optioned right-handed pitcher Oliver Drake and catcher Francisco Pena to Norfolk and placed left-handed pitcher T.J. McFarland on the disabled list with right knee inflammation. The move was retroactive to June 29.
COMING UP: Kevin Gausman (1-5, 3.93) faces Wade LeBlanc (0-0, 0.00) on Friday night.
