When he retired his final batter, Orioles emergency starter Rodrigo Lopez sprinted off the mound and into the Orioles' dugout. He shouldn't have been in such a hurry to give the ball to the Orioles' bullpen.

In an unsightly seventh inning that prompted boos from those fans at Camden Yards who actually showed up to cheer for the home team, the Orioles coughed up a three-run lead to the New York Yankees when rookie reliever Jim Hoey melted down, and converted outfielder Fernando Tatis fell down.
