Dallas Braden filled in admirably in his Major League debut, allowing one run over six innings. Oakland took advantage of mistakes by Baltimore, but the bad news was that Nick Swisher had to leave the game in the first with a hamstring injury.
Jeremy Guthrie did all he could to get the O's a victory, pitching five solid innings while allowing one earned run, but Baltimore made mistakes in the field as it lost its second to Oakland. Aubrey Huff had a double and a triple.
