You have what appears to be an RBI first-inning double by Miguel Tejada taken away on a fantastic diving catch by A's third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff.

You have a runner at first base in Rajai Davis reach on a swinging bunt and then be dead to rights on David Hernandez's pickoff throw but get back to first when Garrett Atkins can't apply the tag in time.

Perhaps taking out a week and a half of frustration, Orioles manager Dave Trembley was in first base umpire and crew chief Gary Cederstrom's grill for well over a minute. Cederstrom certainly let Trembley have his say.

It was a rough first inning for Hernandez, who allowed two runs as the Orioles are in an early hole again. Hernandez is from Sacramento, Calif., about 90 minutes away from here, and he has about 35 friends or family members at the game. Perhaps it was just some early jitters.
