MIAMI (AP) — Trey Mancini and Freddy Galvis each hit a solo homer in the third inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Miami Marlins 7-5 Tuesday night.
Matt Harvey (1-1) allowed three runs in five innings for his first win since July 13, 2019, with the Angels. Baltimore won despite committing two errors and being outhit 11-9.
“It was a little bit of a sloppy game,” manager Brandon Hyde said. “It wasn’t our best game, but we won.”
Harvey, who gave up eight hits but walked none, struggled to remember his last victory.
“To be honest, I didn’t know if it was ever going to happen again,” the right-hander said. “And then with how I was throwing the ball in spring training and the last couple of outings, there was some hope that it was coming back.”
Orioles right fielder Anthony Santander had to be helped to the clubhouse after he sprained his left ankle in the first inning. Santander singled and was injured returning to first base on a pickoff throw. X-rays were negative.
Mancini hit his fourth homer and Galvis his second. Both came off rookie Nick Neidert (0-1), who gave up five runs in three innings.
“I left some pitches up,” Neidert said. “Not being able to put guys away, the extended ABs and the pitches I made mistakes with, they were able to capitalize.”
Galvis added a run-scoring single in the eighth. Rio Ruiz hit a two-out, two-run double in the Orioles’ three-run first.
César Valdez, the Orioles’ sixth pitcher, retired all four batters he faced for his fourth save and lowered his ERA to 0.96.
“I love every time I see him coming in from the bullpen,” Mancini said. “He makes a lot of guys look pretty silly.”
Miami’s Miguel Rojas tied a career high with four hits and scored twice. Adam Duvall drove in two runs.
