Come to the Park. Enjoy the rollercoaster

We just saw the good and bad of the Orioles in one inning.

Corey Patterson made two nice catches in left field, a running one and then a leaping one at the wall. And Jeremy Guthrie got out of a first inning jam and has settled down

Patterson led off the bottom of the third with a single and scored when Adam Jones crushed a ball to the wall in right that Cleveland outfielder Shin-Soo Choo turned into a triple by slipping on the warning track.

Nick Markakis then hit a weak grounder that the first baseman gloved and flipped to pitcher Justin Masterson, which should have been run two. But Jones read the ball off the bat wrong and didn't dash in from third.

Third base coach Juan Samuel gave Jones an earful.

Jones did score, however, on a single by the now red-hot Luke Scott, who may never get out again in his career.

Ty Wigginton struck out and Matt Wieters popped up to strand two runners and the Orioles are now 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position through three innings.

The Orioles' 2010 slogan: Come to the Park. Enjoy the rollercoaster.
