The Orioles rallied in their half of the seventh. After Holder hit Mullins with a pitch, Mullins took off for second as Villar grounded a single through the right side, making it to third. With no outs and runners on the corner, Orioles manager Brandon Hyde called on Davis, hitless in 17 at-bats to start the season, to pinch hit for Joey Rickard. Davis smacked a grounder to first, where Greg Bird bobbled the ball and still elected to throw home, but Mullins beat the throw and tied the game. After a Mancini popout, Villar stole third, enabling him to score the go-ahead run when pinch hitter Rio Ruiz hit a deep fly ball to center.
