The Orioles were 1-for-41 with men and scoring position and two outs when Garrett Atkins deposited a two-run single into left field to tie the game at two in the top of the sixth inning.

It was the first run-scoring hit for the Orioles with two outs and a runner in scoring position all year.

Allow me to repeat - It was the first run-scoring hit for the Orioles with two outs and a runner in scoring position all year.

Brian Roberts had the only other Orioles' hit with a runner in scoring position and two outs and that was an infield single back in the top of the fifth inning on April 8 against the Tampa Bay Rays. No run scored obviously.

The Orioles also broke another dubious streak. By knocking Justin Duchscherer out of the game with two outs in the sixth, they avoided allowing an eighth straight opposing starter to pitch six complete innings.
