Sexson, Seattle bounce Bedard

Lefty allows 8 runs, slam as O's rotation loses Penn, too

Mariners 8 Orioles 6


SEATTLE -- The solutions to the Orioles' starting pitching problems remain as elusive as a quality start from the group. The trade market is mostly barren of effective starters. The farm system is bare of pitchers who the organization feels are ready to step in.

There's no getting around it. The Orioles need help now, they just don't know where to turn. They thought their top pitching prospect, Hayden Penn, could help, but the right-hander, who was supposed to start tonight, needed an emergency appendectomy last night and is now on the disabled list. Adam Loewen, their other top arm, will now be given a shot.
