Game Notes

  • Miguel Cabrera is at 499 home runs, and is not in the lineup today though he is presumably available to pinch hit.
  • Cedric Mullins hitting streak is 18, the longest since Santander had a 18 game streak last summer.   Austin Hays' hitting streak is up to 9.
  • The Tigers put Nico Goodrum on the IL, the third Tiger to go on the IL during this series.
  • Former Oriole Renato Nunez is in the lineup at first base for Detroit today.  Jonathan Schoop moves from 1B to DH.
  • Reliever Marcos Diplan has retired all 11 batters he has faced since being brought up to the majors by the Orioles.
  • The high temperature forecast for Baltimore today is 98 degrees, with a "feels like" between 105 and 110.

What happened?  Santander double play overturned?

Yes - reviewed and overturned.

Then Santander started to steal second with the pitcher still in the stretch on the rubber.  Santander got caught in a rundown and Mullins broke for home ahead of the throw.
