The top of the sixth inning was a rough one for the Orioles and starter Jake Arrieta, and not just because it started to pour at Camden Yards.

Leading 4-2 heading into the inning – all six runs were on solo homers including two by Luke Scott and a back-to-back-back sequence with Scott, Ty Wigginton and Adam Jones – Arrieta and the Orioles coughed up four runs.

Arrieta let the first run of the inning score on a wild pitch. He then left with runners on first and second and no outs.

Jason Berken came in – on Berken T-shirt night – and Willy Aybar hit a bouncer to the right-side hole that Ty Wigginton snagged on a dive. But Wigginton attempted to throw to second for the force and threw the ball away, allowing the tying run to score. John Jaso followed with a two-run single, and the Rays took the lead 6-4.

Arrieta is now on the hook for the loss. He lasted 5 1/3 innings, allowing four hits, four walks and five earned runs, two coming off homers.
