The series shifted to Washington and did not end well. The Baltimore Orioles had a 6-2 lead going into the eighth inning. Wade Miley only went five laborious innings, but Mychal Givens pitched an inning and so did Donnie Hart to allow the Orioles to maintain their lead.
But, why is Asher pitching in the eighth? Why not bring Asher in for the sixth and move Givens and Hart to more influential innings. When Givens came in, the Orioles were up 5-2. If Asher pitched well, Buck could have used him for multiple innings to get to Brad Brach.
Ultimately, Brach blew it in fantastic fashion, with Matt Wieters getting the game-winning two-run single in the ninth. No issue with Brach or his usage, sometimes you just don’t have it, especially against a good hitting team.
