Jim Palmer was talking about a three-run homer from Luke Scott just before the import from Houston launches a 3-run bomb to Eutaw Street to give the Orioles a 5-3 third inning lead at Camden Yards.
Just about the time the Hall-Of-Famer was saying, "Beckett doesn't serve many up" Scott was sending the drive into orbit.
The Orioles playing the third straight game without backstop Ramon Hernandez, Melvin Mora is out for the second straight game. He did DH Sunday in KC. Brian Roberts did make his return to the O's lineup.
Aubrey Huff started at third and his error along with the error of first baseman Kevin Millar helped to fuel Boston's three-run first inning.
