w one of the worst teams in the national league. first, 22-year-old trey turner. that's him. he was called up today. a top prospect at short stop making his major league debut. went 0 for 2. here comes the bat. first, pops up. it's fouled. you know escobar is trying to make the play. he runs. trips up over the wall, head first into a fan. his head smashes into the guy's chest. he would leave the game, hyperextended neck. bottom six, good for the nats. down 5-1, bryce harper just teeing off on this one. solo shot toright center. harp's 31st home run of the season. gets the crowd into it. and the nats are down 5-2. but back to the bad, bases loaded, jam in the seventh. slices this one into right. harper is there to make the catch. he's coming up throwing. bryce's rocket arm off the mark, through the legs of lubutone. one run scores and another run
coming in, and the throw not in time. that was the kind of night it was, and the ugly, final score, they lost 10-3. orioles hosting the twins. hoping to get those smiles back. home runs, they make everyone smile. bottom six, men on. for parra, and he wants to see some teeth. crushing this one to right. three-run shot. fans going wild. orioles take a 3-1 lead. top eight, now twins down a run. former national suzuki, he's up 2-1. pops it upshall shal shallow ce. two runs come in to score. a rare mistake for the four-time gold glove winner. twins take the lead. orioles have walked off three times in seven days. matt weeder is hoping to give them a chance to do it again. strikes out to lose the game. >> we're keeping up with the theme of the night. we're going to move to the redskins. we have confirmation that robert griffin not severely concussed.
