Nationals Vs. Orioles: Baltimore Leads 6-4 After Six Innings

The Baltimore Orioles jumped out to a 4-0 lead against Washington Nationals starter Ross Detwiler. Since, not too much has changed. Through six innings, the Orioles boast a 6-4 advantage.

Leading 4-0, Nick Markakis broke the game even more open in the top of the fifth inning with a two-run home run to deep right field, giving Baltimore a 6-0 lead at the time.

Since, though, the Nats have staged a bit of a comeback, with Steve Lombardozzi singling in the fifth to score Roger Bernadina and tack one run on the scoreboard. Then, in the sixth, Washington grabbed six more, as Rick Ankiel started it off with a double in the top of the fifth inning, scoring Ryan Zimmerman. Two more singles would score Adam LaRoche and Ankiel.
