Simon serves one up (updated)

Mariners catcher Adam Moore just homered off Alfredo Simon with one out in the 10th inning to give Seattle a 4-3 lead.

Moore jumped on a 2-1 pitch, a 95 mph fastball, and deposited it into the left field seats for his third homer of the season.

Simon has given up a home run in each of his last four appearances, and in six of his last 10.

Update: The Orioles loaded the bases with one out in the bottom of the 10th on Luke Scott’s infield hit, Adam Jones’ walk and a one-out intentional walk to Matt Wieters after Felix Pie appeared to beat out a bunt, but was called out at first base. Pie settled for a sacrifice.

The Orioles settled for a tie.

Cesar Izturis ran the count full against Mariners closer David Aardsma before bouncing into a force at the plate. Julio Lugo, who pinch-ran for Josh Bell in the ninth, walked on four pitches to bring home Jones with the tying run.

With the count full, Brian Roberts bounced slowly to second. I thought he was going to reach on an infield hit and end the game, but he couldn’t beat the throw.

More free baseball.

What happens first: This game ends or Manny Machado agrees to terms?
