Harvey, Severino power Orioles to 4-3 win over Tigers

Jul 30, 2021, 7:12 AM | Updated: 7:28 pm

DETROIT (AP) — Matt Harvey extended his shutout streak to 18 1/3 innings, and Pedro Severino homered twice, leading the Baltimore Orioles to a 4-3 win over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.

Harvey (6-10) allowed six hits in 6 1/3 innings without walking a batter. The right-hander struck out five and pitched a third straight scoreless start for the first time in his career.

Cole Sulser pitched the ninth for his fourth save.

Tarik Skubal (6-10) took the loss, giving up four runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings. The left-hander struck out four and allowed three home runs for the second straight start.

Baltimore took a 1-0 lead when Pedro Severino hit the first pitch of the third inning into the second level of shrubs above the 420-foot sign in center field. Ryan Mountcastle made it 2-0 with a solo homer in the fourth.

Miguel Cabrera nearly hit his 498th career homer in the fifth, but had to settle for a double off the out-of-town scoreboard in right-center. Cabrera added a single in the seventh for his 2,941st career hit.

Severino’s second homer — the 25th allowed by Skubal — put the Orioles ahead by three runs in the fifth, and Ramon Urias ended Skubal’s night with an RBI single in the sixth.

Harvey left with two one and one out in the seventh, and Paul Fry retired the next two hitters to preserve his scoreless streak.

Detroit rallied with three runs in the eighth.

Derek Hill led off with a triple and scored Detroit’s first run on Tanner Scott’s wild pitch. Akil Baddoo beat out an infield single and Scott hit Jonathan Schoop before walking Robbie Grossman to bring up Cabrera with the bases loaded.

Dillon Tate replaced Scott, and gave up a long sacrifice fly to Cabrera, who received a standing ovation from the crowd.

Jeimer Candelario bounced into a force at second, but Tate walked Eric Haase on a wild pitch, allowing Schoop to score Detroit’s third run and Grossman to take third.

Tate then retired Zack Short to escape the inning with a 4-3 lead.


The Tigers beat the trade deadline by sending LHP Daniel Norris to the Milwaukee Brewers for minor-league RHP Reese Olsen. The move came six years to the day after Norris was acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays as part of the David Price trade. Detroit recalled LHP Ian Krol from Triple-A Toledo to take Norris’ roster spot.

“The toughest part of this is seeing where this team is now, seeing it rise and how much fun it is to win here,” Norris said. “That’s one of the reasons I’m really sad about leaving.”


The Tigers installed a pair of manual signs listing Cabrera’s career hits and homers as he tries to join Albert Pujols as the only active players with 3,000 hits and 500 homers. He would be the seventh player to reach the milestone.


The teams continue their four-game series on Saturday, with Detroit rookie Matt Manning (2-3, 6.00) facing John Means (4-3, 2.94).
