It was a rare week when the starting outfield struggled badly at the plate ... at least until Sunday, when Adam Jones (.240 for the week) and Steve Pearce combined for six hits. Nick Markakis (pictured) came into the series finale against the Rays hitless in 12 at-bats for the week, but delivered two run-scoring swings, and Nate McLouth had just three hits in 17 at-bats. Overall, O's outfielders batted just .208 with one home run and six RBIs in six games.
