Meanwhile, the Orioles have signed two more picks from the 2018 First-Year Player Draft, infielders Trevor Putzig (17th round) and John Ham (31st). Twenty-three selections are under contract.

There’s been a scoring change from the June 15 game against the Marlins. Manny Machado no longer is charged with an error in the top of the seventh inning. Justin Bour is credited with a hit, which is added to Miguel Castro’s line.

On this date in 1970, third baseman Brooks Robinson notched his 2,000th career hit, a three-run homer off Senators right-hander Joe Coleman in the fifth inning.
