Davis lifts Orioles over Indians

Jun 27, 2015 - 3:48 AM Baltimore, MD ( - Chris Davis' RBI single in the bottom of the eighth lifted the Baltimore Orioles to a 4-3 win over the Cleveland Indians on Friday.

After Carlos Santana hit a game-tying homer in the top of the eighth, the Indians sent Marc Rzepczynski (1-3) to the mound in the bottom half. Jimmy Paredes led off with a double and raced home on Davis' single to right.

Chris Parmelee added another single to put men on first and second. Bryan Shaw came in from the bullpen and got J.J. Hardy to ground into a double play. Caleb Joseph flied out to end the inning.

"Today, every pitch I threw, literally, they got a hit on," Rzepczynski said.

Darren O'Day (5-0) got the win despite giving up Santana's homer. Zach Britton tossed a scoreless ninth for his 22nd save of the season. Wei-Yin Chen got the start and gave up two runs on seven hits over six innings.

Cleveland starter Corey Kluber allowed three runs on seven hits with 10 strikeouts over seven innings.

"You never feel like you break through against Kluber," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. "You've got to have a real good pitching outing, which we got from Wei-Yin. He was strong tonight and threw the ball well."

Brandon Moss and Hardy hit solo homers for their respective teams in the second.

The Indians went ahead in the fourth on Ryan Raburn's solo shot.

The Orioles used a two-run sixth to take a 3-2 lead. Paredes singled, moved to third on Parmelee's double and scored on Hardy's sacrifice fly. Ryan Flaherty followed with an RBI single to center.
