The Orioles had a chance to win the game in the bottom of the ninth, but Hardy was thrown out at the plate trying to score on Markakis' one-out single to left. Mariners outfielder Mike Wilson had the ball even before Hardy reached third, but third base coach John Russell waived Hardy home anyway, and he was out by about four steps.
In the 10th, Jones hit a one-out double off Aaron Laffey and was stranded at second. In the 11th, Hardy was at second base with one out, but he got no farther.
The Mariners had a great scoring chance in the 12th, but Olivo was thrown out at home to end the inning trying to score on ex-Oriole Jack Cust's double to right. In the bottom of the 12th, the home team had men on first and second and no outs when former Oriole Chris Ray retired Wieters and Mark Reynolds, then -- after an infield single by Hardy loaded the bases -- struck out Brian Roberts to end the inning. The Orioles' leadoff man executed two sacrifice bunts, but he went 0-for-5 and is hitless in his past 23 at-bats.
Seattle broke through in the top of the 13th when, with Jack Wilson on second after a leadoff double against Jeremy Accardo, Mike Wilson blooped a ball to shallow left. Hardy raced back, but the ball popped out of his glove, giving Wilson his first major league hit and the Mariners the lead.
But like every previous lead in the game, it didn't last.
"That's baseball, man," Jones said. "We had opportunities three innings in a row off of Laffey. I was sitting there talking with [first base coach Wayne Kirby], I'm like, 'Are you serious?' But hey, it's the game. That's how things work. We just stayed out there, and everybody believed we were going to win this game. That's what happened."
