By completing the fifth inning Saturday at Rogers Centre, Jeremy Guthrie has hit the 200-inning mark for the second consecutive season.

He is the first Orioles pitcher to accomplish that since Mike Mussina and Sidney Ponson both did it in 1999-2000. Mussina actually had a streak of six straight 200-plus-inning seasons from 1996-2000 before he left for the New York Yankees.

Guthrie has given up just three hits, including two solo homers, in his five innings. Meanwhile, Ricky Romero was pulled after five, surrendering three runs on five hits and five walks. He threw 105 pitches in five innings, including 57 in the first two.

Two of the Orioles' three runs have come on bases-loaded walks.
