  • Orioles' Ruiz beats Astros with home run in ninth

Astros: Zack Greinke makes his second start with Houston in the opener of a three-game series Monday night against the host White Sox. The Orioles are listed with a money line of +320 to win, while the over/under total for the contest is listed at 9.5 runs.

Verlander allowed nine hits and four runs in five innings.

Just one day after losing 23-2 to the Houston Astros, the Baltimore Orioles pulled out a dramatic walk-off victory.

With runners on first and second, Michael Brantley hit a rope into the right field corner and it turned into a three-run, go-ahead "Little League home run" thanks to an astonishing throwing error from O's right fielder Anthony Santander. Jose Altuve cut it to 5-4 on an RBI groundout for the Astros in the seventh.

"It was a fun way to win a game, a fun way to get out of the homestand", said Jace Peterson, who had three hits and two RBIs. The veteran right-hander has a 10-5 career record along with a 3.59 ERA in 21 starts against the Orioles.

The Astros scored eight runs in the first two innings and battered Baltimore starter Aaron Brooks (2-6) for nine runs and nine hits in just three frames. The Orioles are now 38-78 on the season, 17-43 at home and 58-50 with the over.

Hall County will be under heat advisory Tuesday
The unsafe heat will continue Tuesday with yet another day of 100-degree temperatures expected. Chances of rain arrive on Wednesday with a 30% chance of scattered thunderstorms.

Unfortunately, Baltimore won't have long to celebrate its win today. "We put ourselves in a position to win; our guys did a fantastic job battling back". He is 2-5 on the year with a 4.89 ERA. He allowed an early three-run homer to Carlos Correa but not much else.

Yuli Gurriel pitched in with an RBI double in the fifth inning and George Springer made it 13-1 with his two-run double, also in the fifth.

Correa hit a solo homer in the third and drove in a run with a fifth-inning single.

The Astros come into the finale after pounding the ball in Saturday's rout.

The Orioles are in a tough spot regarding pitching heading into Sunday's game. Now, they have their ace on the mound in Justin Verlander. Wojciechowski is another example of the terrible Baltimore pitching. I'm not sure what arms the Orioles can really offer to contend with this Houston lineup.
