 Hernandez ends slump
The Orioles hit a season-high six home runs, including going back-to-back twice, but a bullpen meltdown led to a loss to the Rays. Miguel Tejada hit a pair of homers, while Nick Markakis, Aubrey Huff, Ramon Hernandez and Kevin Millar each went deep. The bullpen gave up 11 runs in the eighth as Baltimore's slide reached seven games.
