Orioles right-hander Dan Straily carried a no-hit bid into the fifth inning and the offense made sure it didn't waste a strong pitching performance in an 8-1 win on Patriots' Day over the Boston Red Sox on Monday at Fenway Park.
Right-hander Dan Straily signed with the Orioles because the organization was one of the few that gave him the opportunity to be a starting pitcher. He also had plenty of familiarity with the coaching staff.
Trea Turner hit two homers, including his first career grand slam, and drove in eight runs to help the Washington Nationals rally from a nine-run deficit and defeat the Miami Marlins and end a five-game losing streak.
Given the rallies and momentum swings in the Orioles' series opener against the Oakland Athletics on Friday night, it became a game the Orioles needed to win to not only gain ground in the playoff chase but also boost a team¿s psyche.
