Unfortunately for the Baltimore Orioles, Saturday night’s contest didn’t end as well as Friday night’s. Despite the debut of the top prospect in baseball, Adley Rutschman, they couldn’t pull out the win, losing 6-1 to the Rays.
Early in the game, it was the Arozarena show for the Rays, blasting a two-run home run in the first inning, and a solo home run in the 4th, putting the Rays ahead 3-0. In the 6th, Kevin Kiermaier scored on a sac fly, and Yandy Diaz scored on a groundout, making it 5-0 Rays.
