Eric DuBose, making an emergency start for Baltimore this afternoon, shut out the A's through six innings, giving up just two hits. And then, with a 5-0 lead, the Orioles brought in Jason Grimsley, who gave up a double, a homer, a bunt single, and a walk before being lifted for Steve Klein. You know, it's bad enough that I have to worry about the Angels' bullpen...

Update: Klein stops the bleeding, more or less, recording three straight outs on balls that don't leave the infield. One inherited runner scores on a groundout; Baltimore leads 5-3 in the 8th.

Update 2: Klein works a scoreless eighth and Todd Williams sets 'em down 1-2-3 in the ninth. Take notes, Halo relievers.
