Against the Oakland Athletics on July 27, 2012, the Orioles rallied from a 5-0 deficit after the top of the second inning to take a 9-8 lead heading into the top of the ninth at Camden Yards. Closer Jim Johnson retired the leadoff batter, Yoenis Cespedes, on a groundout to first base. But that was the only out Johnson would record as he was charged with six runs, five hits and one walk in one-third of an inning in the Orioles' 14-9 loss. It was Johnson's third blown save of the season. First baseman Chris Davis and center fielder Adam Jones each hit a home run in the loss.
