Whitehall native Nate McLouth continued his hot hitting on Sunday in Baltimore’s 9-8 loss to Oakland in 10 innings.

McLouth went 4-for-5 with one double and four runs scored. That performance pushed his season batting average to .351, which is among the leaders in the American League.

He also stole his eighth base of the season.

In all, the Orioles had 15 hits.
