Luke's hot hand cools
Orioles slugger Luke Scott, who was 8-for-15 with six homers and 14 RBIs in four games since coming off the disabled list Wednesday, finally cooled down Sunday. He struck out in his first two at-bats and lined out in his third against Detroit starter Edwin Jackson. It ended his seven-game hitting streak and four-game homer streak.
More streaks halted
Jackson ended several Orioles hitting streaks: Aubrey Huff's (eight games), Brian Roberts' (seven games) and Cesar Izturis' (five games). It was just the second time this season the Orioles have been shut out. The first was the New York Yankees' CC Sabathia on May 8.
The Orioles make their first of two trips to Seattle this year, and Rich Hill (1-0, 6.14) pitches Monday at 10:10 p.m. Hill has faced the Mariners just once in his career, June 12, 2007, when he was with the Chicago Cubs. He allowed three runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out five over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision at Wrigley Field. He'll face lefty Jarrod Washburn (3-3, 3.45), who will be pitching in his 16th career game against the Orioles. He is 6-5 with a 4.84 ERA in those games.
