Colton Cowser’s clutch homer, Cade Povich’s gem lead Orioles to 6th consecutive win, 4-2 over Braves

BALTIMORE — One swing of the bat briefly undid Cade Povich’s masterful Camden Yards coronation.

Povich was in line for the first win of his nascent big league career after twirling six scoreless innings Wednesday night, but Atlanta Braves slugger Matt Olson crushed a two-run blast off Baltimore’s bullpen in the eighth to tie the game.

Povich, the Orioles’ top pitching prospect, will have to wait for his first big league win, but Colton Cowser made sure his gem wouldn’t go to waste. The eccentric outfielder backed up his rookie teammate, coming off the bench and clobbering a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth to propel Baltimore to a 4-2 win over the Braves.
