O's beat Marlins 5-3 for fourth straight win

New, 5 comments

Adam Lowen tossed two scoreless innings with five strikeouts, and Ramon Hernandez and Aubrey Huff had two hits apiece, leading the Orioles to a 5-3 win over Florida, their fourth in a row.

Jeremy Guthrie threw another two scoreless innings backing up Loewen, and Danys Baez earned the save. The Todd struggled, giving up an earned run on five hits in 1 1/3 innings.

Huff and Hernandez were both 2-for-3, with Hernandez driving in two runs. Kevin Millar and Jay Payton had one RBI each.

Nick Markakis was 1-for-2, and Miguel Tejada went 0-for-2 with a run scored. Chris George took the loss for the Marlins, giving up four earned in 1 2/3 innings.

The next five up for the O's are St. Louis, Florida, Washington and the Cardinals again.

Jaret Wright is saying he's OK after his start against the Mets was cut short. And Steve Barber's arm is just a little sore.

Danys Baez "begrudgingly accepts" his role as the setup man -- yeah, thanks, dude.
