Orioles run circles around A's in 10-1 win

Orioles run circles around A's in 10-1 win

The constant rain falling on Camden Yards presented an inviting opportunity for the Orioles against the Athletics on Saturday night.

If the Baltimore bats could find holes in the soggy outfield, the Orioles could take their chances on the base paths, forcing Oakland's outfielders to show they would throw them out with a heavy, wet baseball.

And that's what the Orioles did early -- taking extra bases in a game-breaking five-run second inning and giving starter Wei-Yin Chen all the run support he would need for his second major league win in an 10-1 Orioles victory, tying the team's season high for runs and giving Baltimore its largest margin of victory this season.
