Game Thread: Nationals (49-40) @ Orioles (49-41)

orioles pitcher chen after just throwing ball

Bud Norris’ return from the DL was a disappointing one as the Nationals touched him up for five runs in just four innings in a 5-2 victory last night. Now the Birds will try to take this “series” from the Nats tonight before the New York Yankees come to town for a key three-game set prior to next week’s All-Star Break.
