It took 4 hours and 19 minutes and maybe even some blood pressure medication, but in the end the Orioles held on for a 9-7 win over the Houston Astros on Monday.
The game was tied at 4 going into the 9th inning, mainly due the Ryan Mountcastle’s bat. The first baseman had a RBI single in the 3rd inning and a two-run homerun in the 5th. He finished the game 2 for 3 with 2 runs scored, 3 RBI and 2 walks.
Cedric Mullins (3 for 5, 2 runs scored, 2 stolen bases) led off the 9th with a single. Austin Hays (3 for 5, 3 runs scored, 2 RBI) followed with a homer to left field. Pedro Severino (2 for 4, 1 run scored, 2 RBI, 1 BB) added a 2-run double and then Ramon Urias (1 for 5, 1 RBI) added a 1 RBI double of his own.
