Baltimore Orioles lose a heart breaker to open the second half

Baltimore Orioles lose a heart breaker to open the second half

"I think it's big for us to bounce back against the Rangers and get a nice comfortable win, if there is such a thing". "I don't really care about other's people's problems that much, but it's something that's been a challenge for a lot of clubs".

A two-out single to center by leadoff man Ben Zobrist in the second made it 4-0 and marked the 10th two-out run the Cubs had scored over the last two games. Russell responded when he hit a first-pitch, 96 miles per hour fastball off Brad Brach (2-2) over the left field fence.

"The bullpen did another good job", Showalter said. "It just kind of fit us a lot better, and we'll see how it goes". He gave up two solo home runs: Albert Almora Jr. hit one in the third inning, and Addison Russell hit one in the fourth. Chicago is 6-3 against the Orioles all-time. Quintana, whose 95 quality starts since the beginning of 2013 ranked second in the American League when the Cubs traded for him, also ranked second in the AL during that span in worst run support (3.95 runs per nine innings).

There is plenty of baseball left to be played, but if the Cubs keep playing like this then they have a good shot at retaking the division with force.

He is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA in his only career appearance against the Cubs, and that was in 2014.

"It's frustrating", Gausman said.

Many assumed the Orioles might improve with Davis out of the lineup, but that failed to happen as the Orioles went 11-14 while Davis was sidelined. Mancini didn't disappoint as he filled the void for Davis over the last month and finished June hitting.340 with seven home runs and 16 RBIs.

The Government has claimed HS2 "could double the number of rush hour seats" available on busy services in the North. And with fast trains using the new line, there will be extra space for more trains on the existing rail network.

Quintana threw his best game of the season as he allowed just three hits over seven shutout innings.

A BRAVES 7, DIAMONDBACKS 1: Matt Kemp hit a three-run homer as Atlanta completed a sweep of visiting Arizona. The Cubs jumped all over him with three straight doubles to start the second inning and grab the early lead. Not only that, but he has now posted two consecutive games of at least 10 strikeouts for the first time in his major league career.

The Cubs have had some rotation problems as well, but they may have solved some of them, with left-hander Jose Quintana making his debut Sunday, three days after being acquired from the Chicago White Sox.

Orioles: OF Craig Gentry cleared waivers and was assigned to Triple-A Norfolk.

Orioles: RHP Chris Tillman (1-5, 7.90) takes the mound Monday against Texas, trying to earn his first win since May 7. INF Ryan Flaherty (right shoulder inflammation) could begin a rehab assignment by the end of next week.

Jake Arrieta will take the ball for the Cubs on Saturday, marking his second career start against his former team.
