Melvin Mora blasted a home run for the second consecutive game, but the final outcome wouldn't follow the prior night's dramatic -- and uplifting -- script. Instead, the series finale ended rather anticlimactically, with Jeremy Guthrie and the Orioles allowing Melky Cabrera to score the go-ahead run in the fifth inning.
