BALTIMORE (AP) Matt Wieters drove in three runs, including the tiebreaker in the eighth inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Kansas City Royals 4-3 Tuesday night on a soggy night at Camden Yards. After blowing a three-run lead, the Orioles went back on top in the eighth. Adam Jones drew a leadoff walk from Tim Collins (1-1) and advanced when Luke Hochevar threw wildly to first base on a pickoff attempt. Wieters then lofted an opposite-field fly to left that landed just inside the foul line for a double. Tommy Hunter (2-1) worked 1 1-3 innings of relief and Jim Johnson got three straight outs for his 12th save. It was the fourth win in five games for the Orioles, who moved within a game of first-place Boston in the AL East.
