The Orioles finally snapped out of their funk and got a well deserved 12-4 win over the Seattle Mariners last night in the Emerald City. Well, Tuesday's contest seemed to be a tale of two game, as Baltimore jumped on starter and former teammate Erik Bedard for two runs in the first before he figured himself out and shut them down. However, once Bedard left, the Orioles offense took over and when all was said and done, Luke Scott ended the day with seven RBI -- a career high that included a two-run single in the first and a three-run homer in the seventh.
Baltimore used a six-run seventh inning to put the game away for good, and helped Mark Hendrickson (who came into the game relieving Jeremy Guthrie) earn his fourth win of the season. Adam Jones and Nolan Reimold had two hits in the brigade.
Overall, it was a good game for Baltimore; however, you've have to be concerned about Guthrie. Last night, it looked to be Guthrie might have been injured, but upon further review and a few statements from the purported ace, it seems to be that he was ill.
