In Tuesday night’s game, the Orioles pitchers were able to shut down one of the best offensive teams in the league and secure a 2-0 victory. The Orioles earned their fifth win in seven games over the Nationals.
The talk of the game was Aaron Brooks who was able to keep the Nationals off the scoreboard and left the mound with an 8.07 ERA, 58 ERA+ and 1.732 WHIP in 32.1 innings.
SP Aaron Brooks allowed just two hits and a walk over six shutout innings in Tuesday’s win over the Nationals. Brooks struck out six batters, just one shy of his season-high.
After suffering a head contusion and a cervical neck strain in the result of a collision at second base, second baseman Hanser Alberto left Sunday’s game early. However, in Tuesday’s game against the Nationals Alberto showed no signs of ill effects.
At the top of the 1st, 2B Hanser Alberto hit the first pitch of the night into center field for a single.
A few moments later, RF Trey Mancini was hit by a pitch and then left fielder Anthony Santander doubled on a sharp line drive to left field, advancing Mancini to third and bringing Alberto home to make the score 1-0.
Later in the first, 2B Johnathan Villar got out on a sac fly and right fielder Trey Mancini scored, extending the Orioles lead 2-0.
