Luke Scott has set a career high with seven RBI in the game. He has a two-run single, a two-run triple and a three-run home run. He may get a chance to come up again in the ninth inning with a chance to hit for the cycle with a double. (Instant update: Luke was on deck when Nolan Reimold struck out looking in the ninth.)
Who would have imagined that the Orioles would explode for 12 runs (so far) tonight? Erik Bedard came in with a 2.45 ERA and a big performance in his last start against the O's, but he used up a lot of his pitch count in a rocky first inning and only lasted through the fourth. He was on a conservative pitch count after a month on the disabled list.
The Orioles are cruising, for a change, and figure to be in a position to win the series with a victory tomorrow in the afternoon series finale.
