Maybe Ricky Nolasco was the wakeup call the Orioles needed. He buzzed a ball behind Nick Markakis in the first inning and he's been dodging line drives ever since. Luke Scott and Adam Jones opened up no him with back-to-back homers on consecutive pitches with one out in the second and the O's went on to get six hits in the inning, including three with two outs.

Guess you don't want to get too comfortable. If I recall correctly, they scored four runs in the first inning against the Padres the other day and ended up losing 9-4. They also scored four last night got blown out, so don't put this in the win column just yet.
