The O’s tied a season-high with five homers on Wednesday night, beating the Oakland A’s 9-6 at Camden Yards.

(It’s hard to believe, but the Birds hit five homers against the Red Sox on May 1st…)

Just like the previous wins over the past week, it wasn’t easy…the Orioles had to come from behind yet again…

The O’s went up 3-0 thanks to Adam Jones. Jones blasted a two-run shot in the second inning and followed that with an RBI double in the third.

The Birds played sloppy defense in the fourth…two errors in the inning helped the A’s put up six runs and take a commanding 6-3 lead.

The bullpen was spectacular yet again, shutting down Oakland for the rest of the game (five relievers through four innings surrendered just two hits, one walk and no runs), and the offense sprung to life to give the O’s yet another come-from-behind victory.

Jones, Ty Wigginton and Miguel Tejada all smacked two-run blasts, while Corey Patterson and Luke Scott each had solo shots. After Wigginton tied the game, Scott went deep to give the Birds a 7-6 lead in the seventh inning that they would never relinquish…

The bad news: Scott injured his hamstring rounding first base (not thinking the ball was gone, Scott hustled around first), and will probably be out until after the All-Star Break…

The O’s finish the homestand Thursday night…Jake Arrieta takes the mound…let’s see if the Birds can take two straight series! Go O’s!
