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

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.

TIDBITS

The Oriole with the best numbers off Gonzalez is, unfortunately, Matt Wieters, who is 8/14 with 1 HR and 4 RBI.

Other notables: Markakis 5/16 Jones 4/19 Hardy 2/10 Pearce 2/6 Machado 2/3 Cruz 0/10 Davis 1/6.

Gonzalez’s ERA peaked at 4.85 on June 18, but he’s since lowered it to 3.52 by pitching scoreless outings of 6, 7, and 8 innings.

Buck is a mad man:
