'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

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 Zagurski yielded the game-winning hit, a solo homer by ex-Pirate Steve Pearce. Zagurski has yielded homers in four straight outings.
