“Big Dog” Jordan Liles, Ramon Urias go differently when the Orioles beat the Yankees 6-4 to win the fourth game in 5 days – Reading Eagle
After his previous start, Jordan Liles made it clear that every time he had the opportunity to rid the bullpen “Orioles” at halftime, he would gladly demand it for himself.
So, dropping 106 pitches in six innings on Monday night at Yankee Stadium, Liles took the mound in seventh place. He recorded two outings before the New York warehouse overturned, and when Baltimore manager Brendan Hyde left the dugout in the mound, Liles sent him back without a change of serve.
Anthony Ritz’s single surge at Liles ‘117th ground officially ended his night, but a day after the Orioles’ bullpen was asked to record all 33 appearances on Sunday, Liles went more than deep enough for Baltimore to win 6-4 to open their series with the Yankees, their fourth win in five games.
“He’s a dog,” said Jorge Lopez, who finished with a ninth-ninth victory. “He takes great care of us. We were, for example, shocked. We never thought he would come back. He is a dog. He’s a big dog. “
It was only the second time Hyde’s leadership had instructed the starter such an amount of serve. Sunday’s starter, Spencer Watkins, threw just 13 before coming out with a bruised right forearm, an injury that led him to a list of injured Monday amid a collection of gait rosters when Baltimore tried to add fresh hands to his list.
But Lyles worked to minimize the need. He allowed the home run of league leader Aaron Judge in the first inning and another in the fifth, and in the second a rough run became the only other offense against him. The referee’s last blast, a shot from two runs, tied the score at 4, but Ramon Urias brought the Orioles back (18-25) forward, sending Gerrit Cole’s quick ball through the short porch of the right field at the top of the sixth.
By signing a $ 7 million contract – the largest deal the orioles have given to any free agent in four seasons – Liles was expected to ensure the stability of rotation in Baltimore that has been lacking in recent years. With John Mins in the season following Tommy John’s surgery, Liles is the only starting point for the Orioles, who has spent a year in the top league rotation.
“I’m here for work,” Liles said. “I’m here to do what I have to do. Let’s not understand … We know. That’s why I’m here. I’m here to help the team not to overuse these young guys. “
Liles quickly recorded the first two exits of the seventh, bringing him this year’s 52 2/3 innings, the overall ranking ranked fourth in the major tournaments and second in the American League. With Lyles on 113 fields Hyde visited the mound to check on the 31-year veteran.
“I said, ‘We’re fine,’ or ‘What are we doing?'” Liles said. “We have two quick exits, right? There was not much talk. He said, “Hey, are you okay?” and I say, “Yes, of course. I’m fine. Here we go. “
Due to the fact that Judge was due to appear after Ritz’s single, Hyde turned to Felix Bautista, one of six revolvers who worked for Watkins on Sunday. Bautista held Judge before deleting Giancarlo Stanton, another fuzzy sloth in New York, on a slider to single out both runners. On eight margins he rated eighth, and after a sacrificial swing by Robinson Cirinas at the top of the ninth, Lopez got a zero in the bottom half despite passing the first rebound he encountered. After covering 11 innings, the bullpen smoothly processed 2 1/3 after Liles ’work.
“I haven’t had many veterans starting pitchers in rotation in their years here,” Hyde said. “So, a guy with a track record, a guy I trust, a guy who will be honest with me, I will obviously trust him more, and hopefully we will continue to build these guys like that.”
Before Homer Urias all the attacks of the “Orioles” took place in the fourth, when Urias and Kirinas took their first run in a row. Austin Hayes, who in the ninth Sunday inning struck a balance in the game, with a productive shot, bounced the ball into the center at the end of the half, causing Ryan Mountcastle to win the double game. . Hyde called his club’s offensive approach against Cole, who won the biggest pitcher contract in league history, “outstanding.”
“I thought we beat the bats very well,” Hyde said. “Gerita Cole has wonderful things. He ace. No wonder he is an ace. An opportunity to stand out on the board, to be proud of our strikers. “
New Sulser in the city
When the Orioles announced earlier this month that Bo Sulser had been turned down by Pittsburgh, he had a great source to learn about the organization: his brother Cole.
Cole Sulser has played for Baltimore in the previous two seasons and was close to the Orioles before being transferred during spring training with Tanner Scott to the Miami Marlins. After all, Sulser was one of three pitchers the Orioles added to their list Monday after Sunday’s pseudo-bullpen game.
Hyde said before the game that he didn’t know much about Bo, though he believed the Dartmouth product should have worked well on his SAT. But Bo said there were many similarities between him and Cole; in addition to attending the same college, both underwent Tommy John’s surgery, were called up to fifth-year high school and endured a long career in the lower leagues before reaching the top.
After all, he taught Cole a split that made him such a weapon against leftists for Baltimore. Cole taught Bo “just stick to it.”
“It would be very easy for many people to leave the degree of mechanical engineer from Dartmouth and get a second [Tommy John surgery] at Pro Ball in Single-A, go and make real money, ”said Bo, who specializes in psychology. “Looking at how he was going through it to achieve his dream, I just wanted to do the same and keep going until they obviously told me not to do it.”
Around the horn
- In his third game in the major leagues, Adly Rutschman again became the fifth and became the appointed striker of “Orioles” with a score of 0: 4. Hyde said before the game that Rutschman is likely to catch the rest of the series.
- In addition to Watkins ’placement in Illinois and Sulser’s recall, the Orioles recalled right-handed pitchers Logan Gilaspi and Marcos Diplon and selected in Triple-A Norfolk outfielder-outfielder Tyler Nevin and right-handed Mike Bowman.
