Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Chalk up another extra-inning win for the
Baltimore Orioles, who outlasted the Seattle Mariners, 4-2, in 18 innings at
Safeco Field in the early hours Wednesday morning.
The Orioles pushed the game past regulation when Chris Davis knocked in two
runs in the ninth inning, and the bullpens took over until Seattle's finally
blinked in the 18th.
It remained tied until Taylor Teagarden broke the string of eight consecutive
scoreless innings with an RBI single, sending Baltimore to its 14th straight
win in extra frames.
Tommy Hunter (5-8) stranded a runner in scoring position in both the 16th and
17th innings to earn the win, which moved the Orioles into a tie with the New
York Yankees atop the AL East standings.
The Mariners squandered plenty of opportunities to end a two-game skid, going
0-for-17 with runners in scoring position and stranding 16.
