Irvin, Orioles blank Royals, take series with 5-0 victory

Cole Irvin only made three starts in 2023 before the Orioles booted him to Triple-A. Irvin returned to the rotation this season with a pair of starters sidelined, but he failed to impress during his first three appearances.

Irvin took the ball today under a certain amount of scrutiny. Both John Means and Kyle Bradish have started minor-league rehab appearances, and prospect Cade Povich has absolutely dominated early at Norfolk. With the pressure turned up, Irvin rose to the occasion.

The lefty delivered 6.2 innings of shutout ball, and the Orioles secured the rubber match with a 5-0 victory.
