Orioles extend 5 win streak with 6-3 win over Pirates

BALTIMORE ( Associated Press) — Ryan McKenna hit a two-run double in the fifth inning, and the Baltimore Orioles won their fifth straight game 6-3 over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday.

The Orioles celebrated the 30th anniversary of Camden Yards with a pregame ceremony that included Hall of Famers Eddie Murray and Mike Musina, and Brooks Robinson addressing the team before the game. Then the current Baltimore player, who has become quite the story over the past few weeks, added some more current-year excitement to all the nostalgia.

O’Neill Cruz hit a two-run homer for Pittsburgh in the fourth to seal Baltimore’s early lead, but McKenna came on as a pinch-hitter in the next inning, hitting the Orioles with a big two-out hit 5- up to 2. Left.

Baltimore, who entered the American League last wild card in the day 1 1/2 games, have now won 21 of their last 28 games. The Orioles (56-51) have already achieved their highest win in five years.

Austin Voth (2-1) allowed three runs and six hits in five-plus innings for Baltimore, and the bullpen handled the final 12 outs.

JT Brubaker (2-10) conceded three runs and eight hits in four innings.

Terrin Vavra opened the scoring with a run-scoring single in the first, and the Orioles added on an RBI single by Jorge Mateo and a run-scoring double by Brett Phillips in the second.

K’Brien Hayes hit an RBI single to the Pirates to make sixth place 5-3. In the seventh, Cedric Mullins hits a sacrificial fly for the Orioles.

Pittsburgh brought a tying run to the plate in the eighth after the first two batters hit base, but Baltimore’s shortstop Matteo went diving to his left to start a brilliant double play on a sharp grounder by Hayes.

Umpire Carlos Torres (illness) was out, leaving the crew with three men, until Alex Tosi’s replacement arrived a few batsmen.

Murray, whose 500th homer came at Camden Yards in 1996, was asked what he thought of the ballpark’s new wall in left field, which has been pushed back this year.

“Still hit it,” he said indeed.

The attendance of 41,086 was the largest attendance of the year at the ballpark, a departure from the opening day.
