BALTIMORE, May 16 (UPI) -- Brian Roberts tripled and then scored the go-ahead run in the fifth Friday and Baltimore got four innings of scoreless relief to defeat Washington 5-3.
Garrett Olson (3-0) allowed nine hits and three runs in five innings, but he got the win thanks to a solid effort from the Orioles' bullpen.
The game was tied at 3-3 going into the Baltimore fifth, which Roberts opened with a three-base hit. Melvin Mora, who had missed two straight games with a sore shoulder, doubled in Roberts.
Shawn Hill (0-1) took the loss, giving up five runs on eight hits in five innings. The Nationals had won their two previous games.
