Right now I’m just trying to figure it out, trying to get it to click. And it’s the fact that feeling fine health-wise makes the rough start to the season even worse for the left-hander. Like I said, it doesn’t feel that bad that I shouldn’t be able to get three outs,” Doolittle said.
Pat Valaika, Pedro Severino and Anthony Santander homered during a five-run rally in the eighth inning as the Baltimore Orioles roughed up Washington's relievers and beat the Nationals 5-3 Saturday night. Nationals starter Austin Voth pitched five sharp innings, and the Orioles went into eighth with just two hits and trailing 3-0. Sean Doolittle relieved and Baltimore, which routed the World Series champions 11-0 on Friday night, began the eighth with back-to-back, pinch-hit homers by Valaika and Severino.
Nationals second. Juan Soto homers to left field. Howie Kendrick singles to shallow right field.
