Baltimore Orioles

Orioles' bats stay quiet, Mariners win 2-1 to complete doubleheader sweep

After hitting a game-tying home run off right-hander Matt Harvey in the day’s first game, a 4-2 Mariners win , Haniger’s solo shot off left-hander Bruce Zimmermann was the difference as the Orioles fell, 2-1, to suffer a doubleheader sweep.

Mariners right-hander Justin Dunn allowed only one hit in his first start of the year against the Chicago White Sox, but he also issued eight walks over 4 ⅔ innings.

The Orioles entered the doubleheader with the third-lowest on-base percentage in the American League, a mark that got even lower once they managed only two base runners in Thursday’s first contest after the first inning.

From there through the fifth, Dunn allowed only three Orioles to reach base, surrendering Galvis’ home run to the flagcourt, a DJ Stewart single later in the inning and hitting Trey Mancini to lead off the fourth.

Orioles pitcher Bruce Zimmermann reacts in frustration after giving up a home run to the Mariners' Mitch Haniger in the fifth inning of the second game of a doubleheader at Camden Yards.

Baltimore went quietly in theseventh, with Franco leading off the inning by grounding out on a 3-0 pitch as the Orioles suffered their eighth loss in 10 games.
