It took the Orioles three pitches in the 13th inning to get a runner to third base.
With David Phelps on the mound, 20-year-old rookie Manny Machado drove Phelps' second pitch on a line into right-center, and slide safely into second base. Showalter didn't put the bunt on, but Nate McLouth shot a ground ball to second baseman Robinson Cano, enough to push Machado to third.
At that point, both teams were 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position (a key ingredient in a 1-1 score after 12 innings).
Make that 1 for 9. Because Hardy got something and more ...
That made it 2-1, of course. But that's not exactly a safe lead and everybody kept playing. With lefty slugger Chris Davis coming up, Joe Girardi called upon lefty relief Clay Rapada, who got Davis on a grounder, with Hardy going to third. With righty hitter Adam Jones coming up, Girardi replaced Rapada with righty Derek Lowe, and Lowe got Jones on a little comebacker.
