Tribe pitcher Derek Lowe couldn’t snap out of his recent funk, allowing seven runs (but just four were earned!) in 5 and 1-3 inning and the Tribe lost in Baltimore 9-8. But despite Lowe allowing seven runs for third time in five starts, the Tribe, who had a season high 16 hits, were tied heading into the bottom of the 7th. But Joe Smith allowed the go-ahead run in and Chris Perez gave up a home run (non save situation!) and the Orioles escaped with a victory.

Asdrubal Cabrera hit his 11th home run of the season and Jason Kipnis had a three hit night but the Tribe suffered a blow when Lonnie Chisenhall fractured his wrist in the fifth inning after getting hit by a pitch.

The Indians (38-38) look to climb back above .500 on Saturday at 4:05, when Josh Tomlin faces off against Baltimore lefty Dana Eveland.
