On June 4 2019 — The Orioles defeat the Rangers, 12 – 11 in a wild game. Light-hitting catcher Pedro Severino helps the Orioles take a big lead with three homers, and Dwight Smith Jr. drives in another 6 runs with a three-run double and a three-run homer. However, the Rangers almost manage to come up with the win as they score six times in the 9th. The game ends when, with the tying run on base, Mychal Givens apparently strikes out Elvis Andrus for the final out. However, the ball gets away from Severino, who manages to run it down and gun down Andrus on a close play at first base to preserve the win.
