Sunday's result

Orioles 12, Pirates 10

Orioles starter: LHP Brian Matusz —4 IP, 9 H, 5 ER, 1 BB, 2 SO

Pirates starter: RHP Chris Leroux — 0.1 IP, 5 H, 7 ER, 2 BB

Tossed: Catcher Russell Martin never got to see the second out of the game. He was ejected with one out in the top of the first inning after voicing displeasure with umpire Chad Fairchild's ball-strike calls.

Got it: Right fielder Jose Tabata slipped on the wet grass but made a fine catch of Taylor Teagarden's shallow blooper in the fourth inning.

All the way back: The Pirates tied the game at 10 with a five-run sixth inning. Gaby Sanchez had a two-run single, and Pedro Alvarez lined a two-run double.

Stock up: Martin gained a measure of respect from his new teammates by sticking up for Leroux. You want clubhouse presence? There it is.

Stock down: Left-hander Mike Z agursk i yielded the game-winning hit, a solo homer by ex-Pirate Steve Pearce. Zagurski has yielded homers in four straight outings.
