On the catwalk, yeah, on the catwalk

Jake Fox has brought the Orioles within a run by homering in the seventh inning off Rays reliever Dan Wheeler.

The ball hit one of the catwalks at Tropicana Field, which forces you to relearn the ground rules.

Meanwhile, Jake Arrieta is credited with a quality start after allowing three runs over six innings. He threw 114 pitches, again taking advantage of a long leash from new manager Buck Showalter.

Backup catcher Craig Tatum just threw out John Jaso attempting to steal second base. Showalter noted before the game that he needs to evaluate players like Fox and Tatum while planning ahead to 2011.
