The Orioles cut the Mets' lead to 2-1 in the sixth inning on walks to Melvin Mora and Kevin Millar, and a single by Jeff Conine, who had been scuffling at the plate. Darren Oliver gave up the run. Honestly, how many of you knew he was still pitching?

Eli Whiteside is the only Oriole with two hits. He doubled with one out in the seventh, but he was stranded.

Jim Brower and Sendy Rleal have each turned in a scoreless inning. Rleal struck out the side in the eighth. He's supposed to be the closer at Triple-A Ottawa, but he might not make it there. Not if he keeps throwing like this.

Napoleon Calzado pinch-ran for Kevin Millar and replaced him in left field. He charged a fly ball and dropped it.

I don't think he 'll make the club as a defensive specialist.

Really.
