With the lineup the Houston Astros have, Lance McCullers wasn't too concerned when he gave up three runs in the first two innings on Sunday. George Springer homered during a six-run second inning, sending McCullers and the Astros over Baltimore 8-4 for the Orioles' season-worst seventh straight loss.
The Minnesota Twins allowed 11 runs in the eighth inning against the rallying Houston Astros on Monday.
The Baltimore Orioles finally ended a long losing streak and will look to build on that much-needed victory against the New York Yankees at Camden Yards on Tuesday. The Orioles took the series opener 3-2 in a Monday matinee and snapped a seven-game skid -- their longest drought since losing nine straight in July 2011. Despite the loss, the Yankees have a firm grip on first place in the American League East with an opportunity to further distance themselves.
