NEW YORK -- Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo had been contemplating granting Rodrigo Lopez another start before the season was over to give the pitcher a shot at his 10th win. Call it a reward for Lopez's toughness during the most trying season of his career.

Perlozzo did the next closest thing last night at Yankee Stadium, inserting Lopez into a tie game after a back injury forced starter Hayden Penn off the mound.
