Whitehall native Nate McLouth continues to make things happen from the leadoff spot for the Baltimore Orioles.

On Thursday, McLouth had two hits, including a double, scored two runs, knocked in two runs and walked once in the Orioles 10-2 victory over Oakland. He also had two stolen bases.

McLouth raised his average to .302, which is good for 20th in the American League. His two stolen bases give him seven on the season. That is tied for second in the league.
