A slumber after the surge; Guthrie rebounds

Matt Wieters' three-run homer in the second inning put the Orioles' back in Tuesday's game, turning a 4-0 laugher into a tight 4-3 contest against the Marlins.

But just when you thought the Orioles' offense could rally against Florida's starter Anibal Sanchez, it hit another snag.

Sanchez had retired 12 of 13 since Wieters homer. Miguel Tejada's single was the only hit until Nick Markakis' one-out double in the sixth.

Jeremy Guthrie, however, has done his part after a four-run second inning. Guthrie has retired 12 of 13 starting in the top of the third. Give Guthrie credit: He turned what looked like a disastrous start into one which has kept his team in the game.

So it is still 4-3 heading in the bottom of the sixth.
