BALTIMORE — Austin Kearns hit a go-ahead, three-run homer off Alfredo Simon in an eight-run ninth inning, and the Cleveland Indians rallied for an 8-2 victory over Baltimore on Saturday night, ending the Orioles' season-high three-game winning streak.

With one out and Baltimore ahead 2-0, Simon (0-1) allowed a single by Asdrubal Cabrera and walked Mark Grudzielanek. Shin-Soo Choo followed with an RBI single before Kearns slammed an 0-2 changeup to left for his third homer.

Mike Redmond added a two-run double off Cla Meredith before Trevor Crowe capped the Indians' biggest inning of the year with a two-run homer.

Mitch Talbot (5-2) worked eight innings, allowing two runs and five hits. He walked two and struck out three.
