Cole Irvin, John Means and Kremer, the Orioles’ starters this weekend, combined for 19 1/3 scoreless innings.

The Orioles jumped out quickly, scoring three runs against Reds starter Nick Lodolo (3-1) in the first inning.

Ryan Mountcastle doubled with two outs and scored on Anthony Santander’s single. Jordan Westburg hit home his sixth on the next pitch for a 3-0 lead.

Adley Rutschman’s double scored Ramón Urías in the fifth. Ryan McKenna homered to start the seventh, his second, and Rutschman’s RBI single scored Urías for a 6–0 lead.
