    Adam Jones doubled and Wieters homered,

    Zobrist got a 3-2 cookie and hammered it. 

    Two runs on a walk, single, bunt, and a sacrifice fly in the sixth off Hammel.

    Orioles 2 Rays 3

    Brian and Nick singled, but with two outs and two strikes on Adam Jones, it appeared that the Orioles would again strand the runners. They did not. A solid baseclearing double and an intenional walk to Matt Wieters set up the Huck Smash. Earl would have been pleased.

    Orioles 7 Rays 3

    A walk by O'Day, a throwing error by Matt Wieters and a sacrifice fly scored the fourth run for the Rays.

    Jim Johnson, with a save oportunity, gave up a lead off single to Longoria.  Then a strike out. Then a ground ball double play. Of course.

    Hammel with the win, Johnson with the save.
