The Orioles’ struggles in the infield were not confined to only when Means, or any of their pitchers, were on the mound. Their first three batters in the bottom of the third reached, but no runs scored. After Martin walked and Jonathan Villar singled, Joey Rickard dropped a hit into center field. Laureano, who in his brief major league career has displayed a propensity for outfield assists, reached the ball before Martin made it to third, but Orioles third base coach Jose Flores waved him on regardless. Laureano’s throw to the plate beat Martin easily, though Martin dodged the initial tag attempt before Phegley chased him down for the inning’s first out.
