Orioles take down Reds for the second night in a row

(FOX19) -

By Brett Bibbins

Baltimore starter Miguel Gonzalez threw his first career complete game shutout, as the Orioles (81-57) beat the Reds (66-73) for the second time in as many days, 6-0.

The Orioles got a solid starting effort for the second straight game, as Gonzalez (8-7) threw a gem of an outing, giving up only four hits and one walk, while striking out Reds' hitters eight times.

"He had good action on his pitches, but we didn't challenge him," Reds' manager Bryan Price said. "We just don't put any pressure on anybody."

It wasn't just good pitching that fueled Baltimore tonight, as the offense showed up to score six runs as well. The Orioles hit three home runs, one of which by Jonathan Schoop who had a big day at the plate. Schoop went 2 for 3 with a home run, a double and three RBI. Chris Davis hit a two run home run for his 25th of the year.

The Cincinnati offense struggled to score again, as they failed to get a runner past second base in eight of the nine innings. The starting one through four spots in the lineup combined to go 0-14 with four strikeouts in tonight's game. Before tonight's game, the Reds were batting .219 as a team since the All-Star break.

Dylan Axelrod (1-1) started for the Redlegs tonight in his third start of the year, going six innings, giving up four runs on five hits and striking out four.

"He made a couple mistakes that they took out of the ballpark," Price said. "Unfortunately we didn't help him at all, no offensive support. And that's been an underlying theme of the second half for us."
