Steve Wilkerson, Baltimore's center fielder, became the first position player in baseball history to earn a save on Thursday night with a 1-2-3 16th inning to get the Orioles a 10-8 win over the Angels. Aaron Brooks draws the start tonight as he comes in with a 2-4 record, 5.16 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with 46 strikeouts over 59 1/3 innings pitched. Despite giving up three runs in the 15th inning and blowing the save, Scott recorded his first win of the 2019 Major League Baseball regular season. Wojciechowski struck out the first two batters of the inning before he walked Luis Rengifo.
Wilkerson had done well, allowing one run in three innings of work, but those were low-stress situations.

The Angels then suffered a bit of a let down as they went on to lost to the Orioles in game one of this series by a score of 10-8 in 16 innings. The under is 4-1-1 in Angels last 6 Saturday games.
It was getting so late it was getting early - as Thursday's marathon game against the Los Angeles Angels moved into the early hours of Friday - and the Orioles were out of pitchers. The Los Angeles Angels have won six of their last seven games when scoring four or more runs. All prior to Friday night. After the game, Ausmus admitted the bang-bang play was tough for home plate umpire Tony Randazzo to get right, but the Angels manager felt there was enough video evidence to overturn the call.
The play was reviewed for two minutes and 41 seconds.
Both teams blew multi-run leads, and the Angels came within a desperate tag of walking off on Mike Trout's bases-loaded double against Tanner Scott (1-0) in the bottom of the 15th. Kole Calhoun had a nice game with three RBIs, while Brian Goodwin (9) had their lone homer of the game. "For me not to get our offense in the dugout quicker is frustrating on my end of things". On the mound, they have been below average so far as they come in ranked 22nd in the league in ERA at 4.88, while also ranking 18th in WHIP at 1.36 and 11th in K's with 926.
