The Miami pitchers had a vice grip on the Orioles bats all night, especially when runners where in scoring position.
Orioles Rookie Mike Wright pitched 7 shutout innings for the 2nd time in a row, but the Orioles went 1-10 with runners in scoring position. The Orioles bats were silenced in Miami a night after scoring 8 runs. Orioles reliever Brian Matusz was ejected in the 12th for using a foreign substance and he may face a suspension which will tax the Orioles bullpen even more. Another Orioles Rookie, P Oliver Drake made his major league debut in the 9th inning for Baltimore as he worked 3 scoreless innings. Martin Prado singled home the go ahead run in the bottom of the 13th inning as the Marlins snap an 8 game losing streak. Game 3 is today.
