Brian Roberts led off the game with a homer and Miguel Tejada swiftly followed with a double, but the euphoria was short-lived: Rodrigo Lopez fell prey to a couple of uncharacteristically big innings and the Orioles couldn't come back.
Gregg Zaun went 3-for-3 and every starter had a hit as Dave Bush quickly recovered from surrendering a game-opening homer to hold Baltimore to two runs in seven innings, scattering seven hits. The bullpen combined for two scoreless innings.
