The Orioles are losing, 6-2, and Melvin Mora was just called out on strikes, and called for interference, to end the eighth.

Mora drifted toward first base and prevented catcher Dioner Navarro from throwing to second as Brian Roberts broke for the bag.

It's been that kind of day.

Jeremy Guthrie was charged with five earned runs (six total) and nine hits in 5 1/3 innings. He walked one, struck out two and hit a batter.

The Rays got a few soft singles, and Mora committed an error in the third that hurt, but Guthrie wasn't particularly sharp.

Manager Dave Trembley is using his two long relievers, Matt Albers and Brian Burres, to finish up. Albers threw 26 pitches while retiring all eight batters he faced. I didn't think we'd see either pitcher this late in the game.

The attendance: 46,807.

A lot of people must have chosen to watch the game at home. Or at their favorite bar.

Now there's an idea.
