Baltimore Orioles Roster Report 2009-05-04
The Orioles stayed with 12 pitchers when 3B Melvin Mora returned from the disabled list, and may do so until they determine who will play left field full-time. Rookie Brad Bergesen brought some needed stability to the rotation.

--RHP Jeremy Guthrie gave the Orioles eight innings, but was hit with his second loss. Guthrie allowed four earned runs on six hits, including two home runs, but salvaged the bullpen with 110 pitches.
