In his 2007 debut, Adam Loewen outpitched former Baltimore ace Mike Mussina, throwing five strong innings. Nick Markakis had a big night, with two doubles and two RBIs, Jay Gibbons added two RBIs and Melvin Mora went 3-for-5 with a stolen base.
Working on seven days' rest, Mike Mussina gave up six runs on eight hits in his first outing of the season. Hideki Matsui and Jorge Posada hit clutch RBI singles and Robinson Cano contributed two RBIs, but the Bombers stranded 10 baserunners in the loss.
