The Birds seemed more like spring chickens as they topped the Seattle Mariners. Here are the news and notes from the West coast victory.
- Andrew Cashner came to win. After allowing an RBI double in the bottom of the first, the 32-year-old pitcher didn't see another hit until the sixth inning. After six, Cashner's WHIP is down to 1.31 and ERA at 4.37.
- Jonathan Villar absolutely rocked Seattle. His home run ninth home run of the season gave the Orioles a 3-1 lead in the fourth inning. On two steal attempts (one successful), he stole his 15th base of the season.
Although he went 1-for-4, Anthony Santander's two-run home run off Gerson Bautista extended the Orioles lead by two in the sixth inning. Santander tallied his seventh RBI in the past 16 games on his second homer of the season.
