Orioles rally

For the second game in a row, the Orioles have bailed their starting pitcher out of a rough outing. They answered the four-run Cardinals third inning with two runs in the top of the fourth on the aforementioned Adam Jones bomb and four more in the fifth to take a 7-5 lead.

The fifth-inning rally started with a solid one-out single by Adam Eaton. Felix Pie followed with a walk and Cesar Izturis loaded the bases with a single before Nick Markakis hit a long fly ball over center fielder Colby Rasmus to score two. Aubrey Huff brought home the third run with a bouncer to first base and Cardinals starter Todd Wellemeyer gift-wrapped the fourth run with a wild pitch.

Eaton pitched a scoreless fifth and Matt Albers appears to be getting ready to come out of the bullpen for the sixth.
