Clay Bellinger also hit a two-run homer for the Orioles, who blew a pair of early two-run leads but held on late to win their second in a row.

A year ago, it was impossible to talk about the Orioles' top pitching prospects without getting into a depressing discussion about injuries and derailed potential.
