BALTIMORE (AP)- Chris Davis drove in the tiebreaking run on a fielder's choice grounder in a wild five-run fifth inning, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied for a 7-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday night.
The Orioles used six hits and two errors to erase a 3-2 deficit in the fifth, salvaging a split in the 4-game series. The inning also included the ejection of Manny Machado and saw Adam Jones called out on the go-ahead grounder for sliding wide of second base to break up a potential double play that wound up plating the go-ahead run.
Nick Markakis, Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy also had RBIs during the comeback.
Miguel Gonzalez (6-3) won for the fourth time in five decisions. He allowed three runs on nine hits over 6 2-3 innings, walking none and matching a career high with nine strikeouts.
