  • ·    Tillman made his second start of the season tonight…he made his third career start against the Twins, losing for the third time.
  • ·    Orioles pitchers set a season-high with 19 runs allowed…most runs allowed since, April 15, 2009 at Texas (also 19)…20 hits allowed were their most since September 19, 2011 at Boston (also 20).
  • ·    Nick Markakis (3-for-5) is now 7-for-19 (.368) since returning from the 15-day disabled list.
  • ·    Mark Reynolds fifth inning home run was just his second home run off a left-handed pitcher this season and first since May 4 at Boston, off Jon Lester…Reynolds set a season-high with four rbi tonight, marking his most since August 2, 2011 at Kansas City, when he had five.
