Entering the ninth with a 3-0 lead, closer David Aardsma (2-3) blew just his second save in 19 chances. Melvin Mora doubled, Gregg Zaun walked and Oscar Salazar singled to load the bases. Felix Pie ran for Salazar.
Adam Jones beat out a slow infield single to third to score Mora. Nick Markakis then hit a potential double-play ball to Lopez, who dropped it. Zaun scored. Ty Wigginton followed with a two-run single to center for a 4-3 lead.
Lopez also had a throwing error to first later in the inning, allowing Wigginton to score.
