The Baltimore Orioles won their 16th straight extra-inning game Saturday against the Boston Red Sox after Jim Thome hit a go-ahead double in the 12th and Endy Chavez and Manny Machado added RBI singles to win 9-6.
The Orioles have now won six straight games as they began the day one game behind AL East-leading New York Yankees.
The Orioles extra-inning streak is the longest in Major League Baseball since the Cleveland Indians won 17 straight in 1949.
Thome gave the Orioles a 7-6 lead with a ground-rule double that drove in Adam Jones, who hit a lead off double in the 12th. Chavez and Machado hit RBI singles to extend the lead.
Baltimore is 16-2 in extras this season, their only losses was to the Yankees on April 10-11.
