TODAY'S WRAPS: August 01, 2007
Rally stops Birds in their tracks
Trachsel solid as O's fall
For the second game in a row, the Orioles got on the board with a solo home run in the first inning. This time, it was Nick Markakis going deep off Julian Tavarez. Baltimore notched two more runs off the Red Sox starter in the second and Miguel Tejada hit a solo shot in the eighth. Steve Trachsel worked six solid innings and left with a lead, but once he handed the game to the 'pen, the outcome changed hands.
