For the first time since joining the Orioles, starting pitcher Jaret Wright finally looked comfortable on the mound. He located his fastball and threw his other three pitches for strikes.

However, when Wright started warming up for the fifth inning last night, he was alarmed by a familiar feeling in the back of his right shoulder. Wright made it through one more inning before getting removed with shoulder stiffness in the Orioles' 3-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers.
