Orioles take 5-game skid into matchup with Astros

Baltimore dropped its fifth straight game on Saturday and the Orioles have allowed 58 runs over the five games.

Astros: Zack Greinke makes his second start with Houston in the opener of a three-game series Monday night against the host White Sox.

The Astros scored eight runs in the first two innings and battered Baltimore starter Aaron Brooks (2-6) for nine runs and nine hits in just three frames.

Alvarez led the offensive charge, but the Astros also got homers from Alex Bregman (three RBIs), Jose Altuve (three RBIs) and Carlos Correa (two RBIs).

Yuli Gurriel pitched in with an RBI double in the fifth inning and George Springer made it 13-1 with his two-run double, also in the fifth.

Well, the Astros certainly showed what they are capable of on Saturday. He gave the Orioles two good starts recently but struggled in his last two.

Correa's homer in the second gave Houston a 3-1 lead. Then came Alvarez's two-run shot off Stevie Wilkerson in the ninth inning.

The Astros said Friday that pitcher Brad Peacock's rehab is moving along. He's been out for about two months with shoulder problems, according to the Houston Chronicle. "There's a lot he has to do between now and then". Baltimore has Asher Wojciechowski on the mound today.

For the Sunday game, the Astros will send out Justin Verlander in the start. The Orioles open up a series tomorrow against the New York Yankees, who pounded them last week and have done so all season. That would help a badly over-taxed bullpen refresh for the doubleheader. "We don't [have] the easiest stretch".

Baltimore's offense exploded in the ninth against Osuna, who came in with 26 saves.

Orioles: INF Renato Nez was rested after fouling a ball off his ankle on Saturday night. It was ruled a contusion, and Hyde said he's day-to-day, but Nunez did leave Saturday's game when Richie Martin pinch-hit for him in the eighth.

Just one day after losing 23-2 to the Houston Astros, the Baltimore Orioles pulled out a dramatic walk-off victory.
