Adam Loewen lasted just five innings against the Tigers on Tuesday. No Orioles starter has gone a full seven innings since Steve Tracshel did it on April 12, a span of 16 games. Danys Baez gave up two runs in the eighth inning in the Orioles' eighth loss in nine games.
Sean Casey, hitting for Neifi Perez, slapped an 0-1 pitch just past a diving Melvin Mora at third base in the eighth inning. That single drove in Carlos Guillen with the go-ahead run before Placido Polanco's RBI single helped send the Tigers to a win over the Orioles.
