Brian Matusz picked a bad day to look human. He's been the most effective Orioles pitcher all spring, so who would have thought he's lose the strike zone and walk the bases loaded in the third inning of his first regular season start?

The Rays scored twice in the third and Matusz is closing in on 70 pitches, so he isn't particularly long for this game. Jason Berken has been warming up in the bullpen. The game is still salvageable, but Matusz has not displayed his normal great command at any point in the first three innings.

The highlight of the game for the O's so far is Nolan Reimold's first home run of the season, but the O's have fallen behind on a night when they badly need to avert a three-game sweep at Tropicana Field.
