Nothing comes easy for the Orioles, who continue to find ways to help their opponents get out of trouble. In this case, Nick Markakis was tagged out trying to score on a passed ball with no outs in the bottom of the eighth.

The Orioles had runners at second and third with no one out, so they were in position to get a couple of runs and take some pressure off closer Kevin Gregg, who was coming in for the ninth either way. The out at the plate left Derrek Lee at third and Vladimir Guerrero singled through the drawn up infield to give the Orioles the lead, but it's going to be a tough finish with Marco Scutaro leading off and the top of the Red Sox order set to follow.
