Mercer Slugs Orioles to 12-6 Win
The Baltimore Orioles beat the Chicago Cubs, 12-6, at Wrigley Field. Baltimore first baseman Rick Mercer earned player of the game honors with an outstanding performance. He hit 2 home runs. He scored 3 runs and drove in 5. Roberto Ramos earned the win to go to 2-1. He allowed 4 earned runs on 5 hits, with 3 walks and 4 strikeouts. Every game is important, even these early ones, if the Orioles hope to make a postseason run.

Early in the game, Mercer had a grand slam home run for Baltimore. It was his 7th home run of the season and put the Orioles on top, 6-2.

In postgame comments, Mercer told the Baltimore Observer: "Do people still doubt I give 100 percent?"
