The Orioles scored three runs in the fourth and a run in the fifth to erase a four-run lead for the second time in as many nights, but Brad Bergesen could not keep the Rays at bay in the sixth and left with the bases loaded and one out.

Jason Berken would have gotten the O's out of the jam right there if Miguel Tejada had not been slow to release the ball on a two-hopper by Jason Bartlett and only got the force play at the plate. Jake Fox tried to complete the relay to first base, but Bartlett beat it by a half step.

That brought up Evan Longoria, who walked to drive in a run before Mark Hendrickson came on to get out of the inning. All things considered, it probably wasn't a terrible outcome, but the Orioles are going to need another comeback...just like last night.
