Astros lose 4-3 to Orioles
Question of the Day
He was able to mostly contain the formidable lineup of his former team and did not show any ill-effects after being out since April 21 with right biceps tendinitis.
“I definitely felt like I could throw all my pitches,” Feldman said. “I was throwing more free and easy. It was a good feeling, in that regard. It would’ve been a nice one to win. They just got the best of us tonight.”
Feldman, who went 5-6 as a starter for the Orioles in the final three months of last season, allowed two runs and five hits with six strikeouts over six innings. He gave up his first two home runs in five starts this season.
Chris Carter his fifth home run of the season for the Astros.
George Springer went 0 for 4, ending the longest hitting streak of his career at eight games.
“Whenever you get opportunities to put runs on the board, you want to do everything you can to execute,” Houston manager Bo Porter said. “We had first and second with an opportunity to bunt them over.
“We didn’t execute there and hurt our chances of pushing across runs.”
Pearce, who re-signed with the Orioles just two days after being released April 27, hit his third homer in four games. He homered in consecutive games for the first time in his eight-year major league career and has three this season. Pearce has been in the lineup in place of first baseman Chris Davis, who is on the disabled list with a strained left oblique.
“I just want to keep doing what I’m doing,” said Pearce, who is batting .300 with three homers, six RBI and five runs over the past nine games. “I think they know what I can do. Hopefully, I can stay around for a little longer this time.”
Orioles starter Wei-Yin Chen (4-2) had another effective outing, allowing two runs and five hits with four strikeouts and one walk and tied a season-high by going seven innings.
Machado hit his first home run of the season since returning from offseason knee surgery on May 1. Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis went 3 for 4 with an RBI and extended his hitting streak to 16 games.
With the game tied at 2, the Orioles‘ J.J. Hardy led off the seventh with a double to center. Astros righty Jerome Williams (1-2) got the next two batters to ground out before allowing an RBI single to Jonathan Schoop. Markakis followed with a double to center that made it 4-2.
