Machado, Cruz hit HRs as Orioles beat Indians 4-2
Updated: Sunday, May 25 2014, 08:44 PM EDT
BALTIMORE -- Manny Machado and Nelson Cruz homered, Steve Pearce had three hits and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Cleveland Indians 4-2 Sunday for a split of the four-game series.
Zach Britton, the third Orioles reliever, worked a perfect ninth to earn his second save and complete the five-hitter.
Back in the lineup after missing two days with a right groin strain, Machado hit an opposite-field drive to right against Trevor Bauer (1-2) to put Baltimore ahead 3-2 in the fifth.
One out later, Cruz hit his major-league leading 16th home run on a 3-2 pitch.
Pearce was playing first base for Chris Davis, who was placed on paternity leave before the game. Pearce matched his career high for hits in a game, scored Baltimore's first run and also had an RBI.
Cleveland did all its scoring in the first inning and absorbed only its second loss in seven games.
Bauer allowed four runs and six hits in 4 1/3 innings, the second-shortest of his 11 career starts. The right-hander struck out eight, including Nick Markakis and J.J. Hardy twice each.
The Indians used two hits and a walk to load the bases with no outs in the first before Lonnie Chisenhall and Nick Swisher delivered run-scoring flyballs. It was the second sacrifice fly in 241 career games for Chisenhall and Swisher's fourth this season.
Baltimore got a run in the second when Pearce singled, stole second and scored on a bloop single by Jonathan Schoop.
In the third, Pearce hit an RBI single after Cruz doubled with two outs.
