The Indians’ five-game losing streak ended on Thursday night in Baltimore. The Tribe beat the Orioles 7-2 as a pair of three-run homers powered the way.
Johnny Damon got the scoring going in the second inning, hitting a three-run shot. Shin-Soo Choo tacked on another run with a solo shot in the fifth, and Asdrubal Cabrera ended the scoring with his own three-run bomb in the seventh inning.
Recalled from Triple AAA earlier in the day, Zach McAllister allowed two runs and seven hits over five and two-thirds innings to earn his second big-league win. It was only his fifth big-league start.
The Indians and Orioles continue their series on Friday night.
