Article Author:



Bryce Wilson got off to a solid start for the Pittsburgh Pirates and Key Brian Hayes hit a two-run homer in an 8–1 win over hosts Baltimore to extend the Orioles' fifth straight win.

Wilson (2-6) pitched his fifth innings and earned his first win in his last four road starts. He gave up one run and four hits on Sunday, had no walks and his five strikeouts.

His 5 runs for Pittsburgh came from his hit with 2 outs, and his 4 runs in the 7th inning were capped by Hayes' home run. In the game, the Pirates were 5-for-8 with runners in scoring position.

Michael Chavis ran, giving the Pirates his two hits and evading his sweep for three games in the series. Brian Reynolds had two hits and two runs scored.

Jorge Mateo hit the home run of his two-hit for the Orioles.

After Wilson moved to the Pirates, Eric Stout, Colin Holderman, and Yerry de los Santos worked together to finish his last four innings without a hit.

Orioles starter Spencer Watkins (4-2) lost as he allowed four hits and four runs in 5 1/3 innings.

He opened the scoring with a home run by Mateo in the third inning for the Orioles, hitting 11 homers this season and in his current five games he has hit three.

Pittsburgh went ahead in his fifth inning, with Greg Allen and Cal his Mitchell hitting RBI hits and José Godoy running on a fielder's choice ground ball. The Pirates' lead extended to 4-1 in his sixth on Chavis' two-out RBI single. With two outs in the seventh, Kevin Newman's infield hit knocked in another run, followed by Reynolds' RBI single before Hayes' outburst. The seventh inning also included the ejection of Orioles manager Brandon Hyde after his call for an out at bat was canceled in a video review.
