Orioles Snap Five Game Skid; The Draft

The Orioles snapped a five game losing streak as Brad Bergesen perhaps had his best start in the majors to date as he pitched eight shutout innings of five-hit ball and they beat the Seattle Mariners, 3-1 last night at Camden Yards.

Baltimore's youngsters came through that night as Nolan Reimold had a solo home run in the fifth inning, and followed up with an RBI single in the sixth inning. Adam Jones plated in a run in the first inning to give Baltimore a 1-0 lead.

The game was highlighted by some weird plays; however, there was none stranger than what happened in the first inning. With two outs in the frame, it looked Melvin Mora had a home run over the left field wall, but Seattle left fielder Endy Chavez got a read on the ball and seemed to have it in his glove -- after he leaped. However, a fan in the stands extended his glove over Chavez's and the ball landed in the stands; therefore, Mora was originally given credit for a homer, but Chavez and Seattle manager Don Wakamatsu urged the umpires to review the call and the home run was overturned.

George Sherrill earned his 12th save, but gave up a RBI single to Jose Lopez in the ninth inning.
