  • Orioles' Danny Coulombe: Gets walked off Wednesday

    Coulombe (5-2) allowed a run on two hits over one-third of an inning, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Astros.

    Coulombe entered this series with a 12-inning scoreless streak, but the Astros have tagged him for two runs across one inning in two appearances. He allowed a double to Yainer Diaz and a walk-off single to Mauricio Dubon in Wednesday's contest. Coulombe has arguably been the Orioles' most consistent lefty reliever this year with a 2.64 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 53:11 K:BB through 48.2 innings, and he's added two saves and 20 holds over 57 appearances. While he's faltering late in the year, he should still be able to hold down a setup role the rest of the way.

  • Orioles' Kyle Bradish: Excellent in no-decision

    Bradish did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing two hits and two walks over six scoreless innings against the Astros. He struck out nine.

    Bradish has continued to impress down the stretch, going 5-1 with a 2.47 ERA in nine outings since the start of August. However, he'd come up short of a win Wednesday, as the Astros would rally to score twice against Baltimore's bullpen. Overall, Bradish is 11-7 with a 3.01 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 159:41 K:BB across 28 starts (158.2 innings) in his second big-league season. He's currently lined up for a home matchup with the Nationals in his next outing.

  • Orioles' Heston Kjerstad: Clubs second homer

The 24-year-old has made all three of his starts at designated hitter, though he can also be an option at first base and in the corner outfield in a pinch.
