Nolan Reimold homered and hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the eighth inning as the Baltimore Orioles rallied to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-5 Saturday in the first game of a split-doubleheader. Playing in Baltimore for the first time since 2002, the Dodgers took a 4-0 lead in the second inning. But South Korean left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu couldn't hold the advantage, and Los Angeles ended up absorbing its fifth straight loss. With the score tied at 5 in the eighth, Chris Davis hit a one-out double off Paco Rodriguez (0-1) and Ronald Belisario walked J.J. Hardy on four pitches. After a passed ball and an intentional walk loaded the bases, Reimold sliced an opposite-field liner down the right field line. Darren O'Day (2-0) got two outs in the eighth and Jim Johnson worked a perfect ninth for his seventh save.

I'm not the owner, president or general manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, so I can't tell you for certain whether Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is on the hot seat after an 8-10 start. But if he is, he shouldn't be. The Dodgers are 2-7 since the Rumble in San Diego, and it is hard to blame Mattingly for their shortcomings during that stretch. Most notably, the team...
