Shin-Soo Choo, Lou Marson and Jose Lopez each reached base five times (Choo hit a home run and Marson had a double and a triple), the Indians had a season high 19 hits (eclipsing their previous high, 16, set on Friday) and they climbed back above .500 (39-38) with an 11-5 victory over the Orioles on Saturday afternoon. Josh Tomlin went a rocky six innings (5 ER, 7 H, 3 BB) and the bullpen pitched three scoreless innings. Shelly Duncan hit a home run and Asdrubal Cabrera went 3-5 with a double.

The Tribe looks to take the 4-game series on Sunday afternoon, when Justin Masterson faces off against Baltimore lefty Brian Matusz. First pitch is 1:35 PM.
