Don Mattingly had a decision to make. With his Miami Marlins were down four runs after three innings to the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday, the manager was pulling his starting pitcher and wanted his long reliever out of the bullpen to be able to pitch as long as possible without having to hit. So Mattingly, even with just four position players on his bench, made a double switch.
Trey Mancini and Freddy Galvis each hit a solo homer in the third inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Miami Marlins 7-5 Tuesday night. Matt Harvey (1-1) allowed three runs in five innings for his first win since July 13, 2019, with the Angels. César Valdez retired all four batters he faced for his fourth save, and Baltimore won despite being outhit 11-9.
