Maybe those breaks do even out, because the Orioles scored two runs when a sharp bouncer by Nick Markakis took a wicked hop past first baseman Lyle Overbay in the four-run sixth inning and Nolan Reimold drove in the fifth run with a single off the glove of second baseman Aaron Hill in the eighth.

The Orioles picked a good time to wake up in the late innings after going hitless until the fifth against Blue Jays starter Ricky Romero. Things didn't look good when Jason Berken gave up back-to-back home runs to Vernon Wells and Alex Rios in the second, but he showed some grit and battled through six innings to give himself a chance to earn his first victory since he won his major league debut on May 26.
