Orioles' Anthony Santander: Pops homer in loss
Santander went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 9-2 loss to the Mariners.
Santander got the Orioles within a run in the top of the fourth inning before the Mariners pulled away a half-inning later.

Given the competitiveness of the Orioles' lineup, Santander will likely need to shake this slump soon -- Colton Cowser isn't doing much to earn playing time, but Ryan O'Hearn has been seeing more action in the outfield of late, and Cedric Mullins' return from a groin injury will make for a more crowded picture....
