Seven different Orioles' players contribute RBI in win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Everyone in the Orioles starting lineup almost ended up with an RBI during a 7-6 win Monday at Boston. The only two players who didn't contribute an RBI were second baseman Stephen Lombardozzi and outfielder David Lough.

The Orioles got most of their runs during a six-run third inning. Nick Markakis, Nelson Cruz, Chris Davis and Jonathan Schoop all had RBI singles. Adam Jones got an RBI on a fielder's choice and Steve Clevenger had an RBI double.

The Orioles' other run came in the eighth inning on Ryan Flaherty's RBI single. The Orioles hit .303 (10 for 33) and had four walks during the win.
