Orioles manager Buck Showalter and head athletic trainer Richie Bancells were just out of the dugout to check on catcher Matt Wieters in the top of the fifth inning.

It wasn't clear as to what happened with Wieters, who was repeatedly flexing his throwing hand. With Bancells looking on, Wieters made several practice throws to pitcher Mark Hendrickson and opted to stay in the game and finish the inning defensively.

Wieters also just led off the bottom of the fifth with a walk.

Hendrickson pitched two scoreless innings in relief of Brad Bergesen, allowing one hit and striking out two.

The Orioles trail 3-1, getting their only run on Joe Mahoney's RBI single in the third inning.
