Jeremy Guthrie was replaced by reliever Matt Albers after pitching a strong six innings and giving up just five hits and no walks. He struck out two and threw 98 pitches, 63 of them for strikes.

The Orioles added a run in the bottom of the sixth on a base-loaded bouncer by Adam Jones, who outran a double play relay while Gregg Zaun scored from third.
