The Orioles offense was supposed to put runs on the board in bunches in 2011.

Homers. Doubles. Timely singles.

Sacrifice flies?

The Orioles manufactured runs Tuesday in a 4-1 win against Boston -- scoring on an infield single and three sacrifice flies. Normally a free-swinger, center fielder Adam Jones accounted for two of the sacrifice flies.

Even Boston's lone run came via a sac fly.

The Orioles had their chances to improve upon those four runs. They went 1-for-6 with runners in scoring position and left 11 runners on base. They got to Boston starter Clay Buchholz for 12 hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings.

Baltimore's offense showed some signs of life Tuesday following Monday's open date. There's certainly room for more improvement.
