Orioles get another short start and lose to Brewers, 11-5

BALTIMORE—For the second game in a row, the Orioles got a short start and were pounded by the Milwaukee Brewers.

Dean Kremer allowed a career-high eight runs, six earned, on 10 hits as the Orioles lost to Milwaukee, 11-5, before 24,327 at Camden Yards on Saturday. The Brewers defeated the Orioles, 11-1, on Friday and will go for a sweep on Sunday against their former ace, Corbin Burnes.

The Orioles (8-6) had a 4-1 lead after two innings, but the Brewers (10-3) scored three runs in the third and four in the fourth on a run-scoring single by William Contreras and a three-run home run by Jake Bauers to put the Orioles behind, 8-5.

Kremer (0-1) struck out three and walked one in four innings, matching Tyler Wells’ four-inning start on Friday night. In their first 12 games of the season, each Oriole starter had worked at least five innings.

DL Hall, who was traded to Milwaukee along with infielder Joey Ortiz for Burnes in February, allowed five runs on eight hits in 3 1/3 innings.

Ryan Mountcastle and Jordan Westburg homered in the first. Westburg’s was a two-run shot. Gunnar Henderson’s RBI single in the second gave the Orioles a 4-1 lead.

Adley Rutschman, who served as the designated hitter for the second straight game, hit his first home run to start the third.

Jackson Holliday, who is hitless in 11 at-bats in his first three major league games, didn’t play because manager Brandon Hyde wanted him to get a breather after his emotional start to his career.

Austin Hays broke an 0-for-26 streak with a third-inning single.

Elvis Peguero (3-0) worked 1 2/3 scoreless innings as the Brewers’ bullpen held the Orioles to no runs on four hits after Hall left the game.

Milwaukee added three runs in the eighth. Yohan Ramírez allowed two of them in his first game with the Orioles, and Mike Baumann gave up the other.
