As manager Buck Showalter predicted, the wind has certainly been a factor through one inning here.

The Philadelphia Phillies scored three runs in the first inning, two coming in on Raul Ibanez's wind-aided homer to center field off Jeremy Guthrie. Delwyn Young plated the other run in the first with an RBI single to center. Guthrie threw 20 pitches in the first inning, 12 for strikes.

The Orioles just got two back in the bottom off the first off of Cliff Lee. J.J. Hardy led off with a single, and then Nick Markakis hit an extremely wind-aided triple over the head of Phillies center fielder Shane Victorino. Adam Jones then scored Markakis with an RBI groundout to make the score 3-2.

Guthrie bounced back with an easy second, needing just seven pitches to get three ground balls.
