Orioles break scoreless deadlock with four in sixth

Through five innings, the Orioles were 1-for-7 with runners in scoring position off Tigers starter Max Scherzer, and that one hit was a Felix Pie single in the fourth that didn't score a run.

Entering the top of the sixth, Scherzer had also gotten his last five outs via the strikeout.

But these Orioles continue to surprise and they just put up four runs in the sixth with the bottom of the order doing most of the damage.

Adam Jones got it started with a leadoff double, his third hit of the night. Felix Pie then doubled him home to give the Orioles a 1-0 lead. Josh Bell followed with an infield single, and Cesar Izturis scored both Pie and Bell with a two-run triple. Ty Wigginton drove in the fourth run with a sacrifice fly to deep center that Tigers rookie Austin Jackson made a great play just to catch.

Jeremy Guthrie just turned in a perfect sixth inning. He's allowed five hits in six scoreless.
