DON'T GO THERE
Orioles pitcher Koji Uehara needed just 45 pitches to turn in four scoreless innings, but he made a big mistake in the fifth inning that cost him a potential shutout. Dan Uggla slammed Uehara's 0-2 pitch over the scoreboard in left field for a game-tying solo home run. Uehara did well to keep the score tied through the fifth.
In his first outing since surrendering a pinch-hit three-run homer to the Philadelphia Phillies' Ryan Howard, Danys Baez suffered a similar fate. With the score tied at 1 heading into the bottom of the seventh, the Marlins scored five times off Baez, highlighted by Hanley Ramirez's grand slam. Baez got just one out while surrendering four hits.
Jason Berken (1-3, 6.84) will get the ball in Game 2 of the series at 7:10 p.m. Wednesday at Land Shark Stadium. He'll oppose Marlins right-hander Ricky Nolasco (3-6, 7.15). Nolasco was Florida's Opening Day starter, but early struggles - he had a 9.07 ERA after his first nine starts - led to a brief demotion to the minor leagues. Nolasco has pitched better since returning, allowing two earned runs or fewer in all three of his outings.
