Schoop, Hundley help O’s rally past Brewers in 10
Question of the Day
MILWAUKEE (AP) - Making his first start since being acquired in a trade with San Diego on Saturday, Nick Hundley came through for the Baltimore Orioles, atoning for an earlier error that nearly cost his new team the game.
“I was excited for the opportunity to make up for it. That is all you can ask for, is one more chance. Physical errors hopefully don’t happen and it did in the ninth in a crucial situation. That is a big spot to throw a ball away,” Hundley said.
After the Orioles rallied to tie the game with two outs in the ninth off Brewers‘ closer Francisco Rodriquez, a throwing error by Hundley in the bottom of the inning nearly saved the day for Milwaukee.
Jonathan Lucroy singled with one out. Carlos Gomez bunted and the throw from Hundley sailed into right field, allowing Lucroy to advance to third while Gomez ended up at second. With Elian Herrera pinch running for Lucroy, and representing the winning run, Mark Reynolds hit a soft line drive to short and Herrera broke for home, leading to an easy double play.
With two outs in the 10th, J.J. Hardy doubled off Rob Wooten (1-2). He scored on Hundley’s single.
Jonathan Schoop hit two home runs for Baltimore. Down 6-4 with two outs in the ninth, Schoop’s second homer cut it to one. After pinch-hitter Delmon Young singled, Nick Markakis hit a game-tying double.
“I’m sticking with my approach. Trying to see the ball and hit it. Stay aggressive,” Schoop said.
Darren O’Day (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning of relief to get the win. Zach Britton pitched out of trouble in the 10th to record his third save in three opportunities.
Khris Davis and Lyle Overbay hit back-to-back home runs in the sixth for Milwaukee.
Schoop’s first homer came in the seventh and made it 6-4. He came into the game with just three homers on the season.
Baltimore starter Chris Tillman gave up six runs on seven hits in 5 2-3 innings. He walked four and struck out seven.
Brewers starter Kyle Lohse gave up four runs on nine hits over 6 2-3 innings. He struck out five and didn’t issue a walk. It marked the fourth time this season that a blown save cost Lohse a win.
“He had the one bad inning but other than that I thought he threw the ball well,” Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said.
