BALTIMORE (AP) — Ryan Flaherty singled in the tie-breaking run in the seventh inning, Matt Wieters hit a three-run homer, and the Baltimore Orioles broke out of their scoring funk with a 9-8 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Friday night.

On a steamy night in which temperatures reached 100 degrees, both teams worked up a sweat circling the bases. Cleveland had a season-high 16 hits, but the Orioles scored just enough runs to secure their third win in 10 games.

Chris Davis started the seventh-inning uprising with a two-out single off Joe Smith (5-2). After Wieters walked, Flaherty delivered an RBI single to right.

Xavier Avery hit his first major league homer in the eighth to make it 9-7.
