Orioles Win in Extras
The Baltimore Orioles beat the Houston Astros, 6-4, in 11 innings. Baltimore right fielder César Gómez merited player of the game honors with his performance. He was 3 for 5 with 3 singles. He scored 2 runs and drove in 2. Baltimore reliever Cipriano Rodríguez was the winner. His record is now 1-1. Manuel Núñez took the loss. River Fincher finished to wrap up his 1st save.

Rick Mercer swatted a 2-run home run for Baltimore in the top of the 11th. The first baseman went 2 for 5 for the game, including 1 home run and 1 double. He scored 1 run and batted in 3.

"Some of the guys in here work hard, some of the guys just kind of fall out of bed and get it done. Whatever works I guess, we won this one," Mercer told the Baltimore Observer.

Every game is important, even these early ones, if the Orioles hope to make a postseason run.
