Indians End 4-Game Win Streak, Fall to Orioles
CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Indians’ four-game win streak ended on Friday night in Baltimore.
The Orioles posted a 8-4 victory with a Chris Davis home run being the hit that sent the locals over the top.
T.J. House in his first start took the loss. He went 6 innings and gave up 5 runs on 11 hits.
Baltimore took a 3-0 lead after three innings. Two runs came courtesy of a Davis double, and the other run came thanks to a solo homer by Nelson Cruz.
Cleveland got on the board in the top of the 4th inning thanks to a Lonnie Chisenhall rbi double. Later that inning, Jason Giambi hit his first homer of the season. The three run bomb staked the Tribe to a 4-3 lead.
That did not last long. In the bottom of the 5th, Davis hit a two run homer, his seventh roundtripper of the year. Baltimore led 5-4.
In the bottom of the 7th, the home team added 3 more runs. The door was opened wide when pitcher Mark Lowe, fielded a grounder with runners on first and second and threw wildly to second base, keeping the inning very much alive. On that play Adam Jones scored to make it 6-4. A ground out yielded the 7th run and a Delmon Young rbi double gave the Birds an 8-4 lead.
That’s how it ended.
