Jake Fox tied the score in the bottom of the ninth with a long home run to left field off Matt Fox. Chris George pitched a scoreless top of the 10th for the Orioles, and then Clevelan Santeliz retired Tyler Henson with Josh Bell on first base as the game ended in a 4-4 tie.

Here are some post-game notes:

The announced attendance was a 8,229, the second sellout in three games at remodeled Ed Smith Stadium. It also is the biggest crowd for a baseball game in Ed Smith's history.

Manager Buck Showalter said the Orioles will make their first round of cuts after Wednesday's split-squad games. The Orioles want to make sure they have enough players to get through Monday and Wednesday's split-squad games.

First base prospect Joe Mahoney, the organization's reigning minor league player of the year, went 3-for-3 with an RBI, a stolen base and a walk. The young first baseman has really impressed Showalter and did so again today.

"He had a good day, didn't he? That was fun," Showalter said. "I walked by him before the game and to the guy he was throwing with, [Tyler] Henson, I said, 'Is he nervous?' And he said, 'Yeah.' I said, 'Good, so am I.' He was good. Joe was our minor league player of the year. He's certainly what they look like. It was a good day for him. I was happy for him."

Orioles catcher Matt Wieters was hit in the right arm by Carl Crawford's backswing in the fifth inning. Showalter said that Wieters lost a little feeling in his arm but regained it. Wieters was originally expected to travel to Fort Myers tomorrow, but he has since been scratched from that trip. Showalter said he'll play Monday.

Showalter said that Brian Matusz and Justin Duchscherer, who had successful throwing sessions today, will pitch Tuesday if they come in tomorrow feeling fine.
