Hunter Harvey gets first call up by Orioles to help out weary bullpen

The Orioles have recalled 2013 first-round pick Hunter Harvey from Double-A Bowie to bolster their weary bullpen.

Harvey, the son of former big league pitcher Bryan Harvey, has never pitched above Class A. The 23-year-old right-hander missed the 2015 season with an arm injury and had Tommy John surgery in July 2016.

Harvey pitched 18 2/3 innings last season for three low-level minor league teams.

Baltimore’s top pitching prospect arrived Monday after the Orioles played extra-inning games against the Yankees on Friday and Sunday. He replaces lefty Tanner Scott, who pitched Sunday and was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk.

“Complacency. I think that is kind of what happens to a young team with early wins.” — Gordon, on Orlando’s struggles after starting 8-4 this season.

Magic: Wrap up the season by hosting the Wizards on Wednesday.

Bucks: Finish the regular season with a trip to face the 76ers.

“It’s tough when Rudy gets going, everything goes in,” said Willie Cauley-Stein, who finished with 25 points and 10 rebounds.

Gay had eight points, five rebounds, an assist and a block in the fourth quarter.

San Antonio outscored Sacramento 50-25 after Gay entered the game with 6:38 remaining in the third quarter.

“The way I was growing up, you learn you never have anything given to you, so you’ve got to go get it on your own,” Gay said.

Forbes’ fast-break layup off a steal by Kyle Anderson gave San Antonio its first advantage at 68-67 with 10:21 remaining. Sacramento went back ahead seconds later when Buddy Hield hit a 3-pointer, and the lead changed three times after that before Ginobili and Gay gave the Spurs’ the edge for good.

Gay and Ginobili had thunderous dunks in the final five minutes that helped San Antonio maintain small leads. Gay also had a 3-point play off a runner he tossed in and ripped the ball from Cauley-Stein while blocking the 7-footers shot.
