Brad Brach shined in his final July 30th as a member of the Baltimore Orioles striking out two Texas Rangers batters and allowing no walks or hits in an inning of work during a 10-6 road victory on July 30, 2017. Brach entered in the bottom of the seventh inning with the O’s leading 10-3 and fanned both Joey Gallo and Delino DeShields before inducing an Elvis Andrus groundout.
Brach was one of six Orioles relievers used in the Sunday afternoon contest that lasted three hours and forty-seven minutes. Brach followed Darren O’Day‘s inning of work in relief of Wade Miley and preceded Miguel Castro, Donnie Hart, Mychal Givens, and Zach Britton. Ten pitchers appeared in the game, seven for the Orioles and three for the Rangers.
The 2012 Wild Card opponents each finished the day with a 50-54 record. The O’s ultimately finished in last place in the American League East with a 75-87 record while Texas finished fourth in the five-team American League West with a 78-84 record.
