Johnson Shines As O's Sweep M's

The Birds swept Seattle out of town after a decisive 9-2 victory on Wednesday night at Camden Yards.

Steve Johnson received plenty of run support in his starting debut, as the Birds went ahead 7-0 after four innings. Johnson (1-0) went six innings, allowing just two runs on five hits and two walks, striking out nine.

Matt Wieters went 2-for-5 and tied his career-best with five RBIs. Nick Markakis tripled and homered, and Adam Jones went 3-for-4 with two doubles.

The Birds have now won five straight for the fifth time this season...they have yet to reach six straight. Wei-Yin Chen looks to give the O's a new season-best mark on Thursday night.
