Urías and Santander shine with the wood in the Major Leagues, López delights from the mound

Sluggers Ramón Urías and Anthony Santander showed off with the wood in hand for the Orioles this Tuesday in Major League Baseball, while Venezuelan pitcher Pablo López delighted with his pitching jewel in the Marlins’ victory.

Mexican Urías and Venezuelan Santander hit two home runs for the Baltimore Orioles, who beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5×3.

Urías hit his home run with a man on base in the eighth inning against reliever Colin Poche (2-1), who finally charged with the disaster.

With the win, the Orioles moved a game over .500 (49-48) after going 52-110 last year.

The win went to Keegan Akin (2-1), who got the last out in the eighth inning of relief, and Puerto Rican All-Star closer Jorge Lopez pitched the ninth for his 19th save.

-Marlins triumph-

In Cincinnati, Venezuelan Pablo López had a pitching gem in a 2×1 win for his Marlins against the host Reds.

Lopez (7-5) allowed just two hits and tied his career high with 11 strikeouts in seven solid innings.

Teammate Joey Wendle had a two-run single off pitcher Hunter Greene.

A day after Cincinnati blew out the Marlins with 11 runs, Lopez had a spectacular performance for the fish. The Venezuelan overcame a home run by slugger Mike Moustakas.

Lopez was fine throughout the game retiring 21 of his last 22 Reds batters.

The Reds had won nine of their previous 13 games.

Closer Tanner Scott retired the ninth inning of 1-2-3 for his 13th save.

The disaster was for Hunter Greene (3-12). The rookie right-hander is 0-5 in his last eight starts.
