Orioles Win Again, Astros Rally, Giants Thump D’Backs

Jonathan Grant | July 13th, 2022

The Baltimore Orioles are a .500 team. When was the last time that you heard that? Barring any kind of early-season situation, it has been a long time coming, but the team achieved that goal of somewhat gaining relevance- for now- on Tuesday night as they downed the Cubs in Chicago by a score of 4-2 to record their ninth consecutive win. The O’s fell behind 2-0 after two innings, but they fought back as Ramon Urias starred by crushing a two-run homer and also making a sterling defensive play to help make the difference. On the mound, Jordan Lyles went seven innings of two-run ball, and the team, thanks to the win, are now above the losing mark for the first time this season.

They’re also just two games off a Wild Card spot currently, so there is plenty to play for as the season progresses. Elsewhere, the Houston Astros blew a four-run lead in the seventh inning only to come back in the top of the ninth and down the struggling Los Angeles Angels. Two errors, a hit batter, and a passed ball caused were all examples of incompetence, but they still somehow found a way to overcome it all as Kyle Tucker hit a double in the ninth to give them a wild 6-5 win. The loss was the fifth straight for the Halos as their woes persist following a strong start to 2022. And finally, in San Francisco the Giants were whipping the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday evening, smashing them 13-0 behind a four home run showing. Thairo Estrada had two of those and Logan Webb got the win on the mound as they hope to regain some momentum as the All-Star break approaches.
