Starting pitcher Jose Berrios earned his 7th win of the season with 3 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts and no runs in 7⅔innings. He continued to play an active role with no hits and no runs until the 6th inning. Berrios, who signed a 7-year, $131 million (approximately 167.4 billion won) contract extension after the end of the 2021 season, was sluggish last season with a 12-7 ERA of 5.23 in 32 games (172 innings). This season, in the first appearance of the season, he collapsed with 8 runs in 5⅔ innings (average ERA of 12.71) and showed an uneasy appearance. However, after that, he gradually began to regain stability and succeeded in rebounding with an earned run average of 3.28 with 7 wins and 4 losses in 14 games (85 innings).
The bullpen led by Team Maya (⅓ innings scoreless) and Jordan Romano (one run in one inning) kept the team victorious. Romano earned 19 saves on the season. On the other line, George Springer hit his 10th home run of the season. Bo Vichet and Witt Merrifield played an active part in multi-hits.
Baltimore, which was on a five-game winning streak, ended its winning streak with a loss on the day. Starting pitcher Kyle Bradish pitched well with 4 hits (1 home run), 1 strikeout and 1 run in 7 innings. However, he became a losing pitcher because he did not receive scoring support from the other line.
