Bullpen can't hold it
Photos
Royals 10, Orioles 7
Garrett Olson pitched 5 1/3 innings on Thursday, giving up five earned runs. (Gail Burton/AP)
After producing just one hit through the first three innings, the Orioles put together a five-hit, five-run fifth inning thanks to an Aubrey Huff solo homer, an Adam Jones two-run triple and Brandon Fahey RBI triple. Huff added a second homer in the sixth, but starter Garrett Olson and the bullpen couldn't hold the four-run lead.
