Bats Back Berken in Win

The O's were down early but battled back to defeat the Rays 10-5 on Tuesday night at Camden Yards.

The Rays took a 4-0 lead in the first inning and led 5-0 in the third before the O's even got on the board...the Birds scored the final 10 runs of the game.

Starter Jason Berken (5-11) took the win after allowing five runs through 6 1/3 innings...Berken walked one and struck out two. The 'pen combined to allow just one hit through the final frames...

Every Oriole starter had at least one hit, but Matt Wieters had the offensive game of his young career...Weiters went 3-for-4 with a single, a double and a 3-run blast and finished with a career-best five RBIs. Brian Roberts set a new franchise record with his 52nd double...

Chris Tillman (2-3) gets the ball on Wednesday night as the Birds try to take the series from the Rays...Go O's!!
