Brantley's 4 RBIs as Indians beat Orioles

ASSOCIATED PRESS

BALTIMORE — Michael Brantley homered and had four RBIs, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 tonight for their ninth win in 12 games.

Brantley put the Indians ahead with a two-run single in the sixth inning and made it 5-2 with a two-run shot in the eighth off Darren O’Day. His four RBIs tied a career high, reached twice previously.

Nick Swisher had two hits and scored a run for the Indians, and former Oriole Mark Reynolds went 1 for 2 with two walks. The victory improved Cleveland’s record against the AL East to 7-17 and provided an uplifting start to an 11-game road trip.

Ubaldo Jimenez (6-4) allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings and Vinnie Pestano, the fourth Indians reliever, worked the ninth for his fourth save.
