Seattle's Russell Branyan led off the seventh with a solo home run against Brian Bass that landed a few rows from the top of the center-field bleachers. It was measured at 450 feet, tied for sixth longest in Camden Yards history.
A rough early return
Seattle left-hander Garrett Olson, making his first appearance in Camden Yards since being traded to the Chicago Cubs for Felix Pie, wasn't greeted warmly by his old buddies. In the first inning, he walked Brian Roberts, gave up two long warning-track outs to Nick Markakis and Adam Jones before Luke Scott homered. Olson then surrendered a double to Melvin Mora that was nearly another homer and walked Nolan Reimold before striking out Ty Wigginton to end the inning. But he was tagged for only two runs in five innings.
