Baltimore Orioles Notes, Quotes
--RHP Daniel Cabrera got his first win of the season on Friday as he allowed only two runs, the second on a home run after sitting through an extremely long sixth inning rally that accounted for the victory. The AL walks leader of the past two seasons issued only two bases on balls to continue a decline by one in each of his four starts.

--PH Jay Payton ran his hitting streak to three straight games and all were pinch-hit singles, twice while batting for Luis Hernandez and once for Brandon Fahey. His sixth-inning hit on Friday was good for two RBIs in the middle of the Orioles' seven-run rally.

--LF Luke Scott remained among the most productive hitters in the AL on Friday when he had two more hits giving him team high 21, including nine doubles. His average is up to .389 after hitting in six consecutive games.

--RHP Randor Bierd gave up hits to the first two batters he faced on Friday, but retired the next two batters before giving way to Jamie Walker who got out of the inning unscathed. Bierd has given up eight hits but nary a run in 10 2/3 innings over six appearances.

--RHP Steve Trachsel, who will start on Saturday against the Yankees, has a lifetime 3.63 ERA in 10 starts against the Pinstripers. He has a 4-4 record, but has given up 11 home runs, more than any other AL team has hit off him.

BY THE NUMBERS: 2 -- Home runs off the bat of the Rays' Carlos Pena, marking the first time since 1998 that Jamie Walker gave up home runs in back-to-back appearances (Friday and Saturday). Both game-tying shots came in the eighth inning.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "When you come in here and play this team, you better get as many runs as you can because you're probably never going to have enough. ... Every time you get an opportunity to tack on, you have to tack on." -- Manager Dave Trembley talking about playing the Rays at Tropicana Field.
