Luke Scott is simply unconscious

Designated hitter and so-to-be-named American League Player of the Week Luke Scott just hammered a 420-foot, no-doubt home run to right center field off Justin Verlander to tie the game in the bottom of the sixth.

Let's review: Luke has now hit home runs in four consecutive games. He has five home runs in the last three games (2 2/3 games, actually) and has a total of six homers and 14 RBI this week. He also has seven homers in his last four games against the Tigers, dating back to his last game against them last year. In other words...WOW!

Matt Wieters update: Wieters followed Scott's home run with his second extra-base hit of the game, a ground rule double to center.

Jeremy Guthrie update: Guthrie has left the game after pitching six innings. He allowed three runs on seven hits and struck a career-high 10 batters. He is the first Orioles pitching to record a double-digit strikeout total since Erik Bedard struck out 11 on Aug. 21, 2007.
