Orioles lose wacky, wild extra-inning affair in Pittsburgh, falling to Pirates 5-4

Saturday in Pittsburgh had a little bit of everything: A no-hit bid that lasted into the 6th inning, an escape from a no-out bases-loaded jam in the bottom of the 10th, and a diving catch to stave off a certain loss. Unfortunately, the only thing it didn’t have was an Orioles win as the O’s fell to the Pirates 5-4 in 11 innings.

Early on, it never looked like the Orioles would come close to extra innings. Baltimore fell behind 3-0 early and the Pirates soft-throwing lefty Baily Falter was completely befuddling the Orioles lineup. Falter didn’t allow a base runner until the 4th, didn’t allow a hit until the first batter in the 6th and had Orioles hitters completely off balance for most of the afternoon.
