I think it's safe to assume that Freddie Bynum lost track of the outs when he caught Eric Hinske's lazy liner in the fifth and jogged behind second base and into shallow right field, while Carlos Pena applied the brakes and retreated to first.

Pena would have been an easy out if Bynum remembered that the Orioles needed another one.

Daniel Cabrera's line: 5 2/3 innings, four runs, nine hits, six walks, one strikeout. He threw 118 pitches, 62 for strikes. But he'll get a no-decision with the game tied at 4.

Jamie Walker vs. Carlos Pena isn't an ideal matchup if you're an Orioles fan, but manager Dave Trembley didn't shy away from his lefty, who's been more effective lately in situations that are supposed to favor him. Walker responded by striking out Pena.

Walker retired two left-handed hitters in his last appearance.

Trembley has inserted Alex Cintron at shortstop after pinch-hitting Luke Scott for Bynum.

Is Luis Hernandez still on this team?

Ramon Hernandez's sacrifice bunt in the seventh was his first as an Oriole, and his first since 2005 with the Padres.
