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.

Jonathan Schoop and Wellington Castillo powered the Orioles offense with a combined four hits, two home runs, and seven RBI. Six O’s batters had a multi-hit game led by Manny Machado with three hits.

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.
