It's a little early to declare the Orioles offensive slump over. It'll take more than one home run from someone other than Luke Scott or Nolan Reimold and one six-run seventh inning to wash away the bad taste of a month of offensive frustration, but maybe Dave Trembley will sleep a little better.

Now, all the Orioles have to do is break their Sunday jinx against Derek Lowe and maybe things will really be looking up. That'll be a tall order, with Lowe pitching very well this year, but Brad Bergesen seems to be hitting his stride, so who knows.
