Former No. 1 overall pick Casey Mize dominates, Miguel Cabrera homers twice in Orioles' 6-2 loss to Tigers

A year before the Orioles drafted Adley Rutschman first overall, the Detroit Tigers selected right-handed pitcher Casey Mize with the same pick.

As Rutschman thrives at Double-A Bowie as one of the top prospects in baseball, Mize is pitching in the majors, and he dominated the Orioles on Thursday night at Comerica Park. Mize allowed only an unearned run in seven innings, his longest start of July as the Tigers have tried to manage his innings, as Baltimore fell, 6-2.

The Orioles (35-66) threatened immediately when All-Star Cedric Mullins led off the game with a triple, but he was caught between third and home on a Trey Mancini groundball two batters later.
