Indians 5, Orioles 4
David Hernandez walked three and struck out four in his six innings. (Gail Burton/AP)
Rookie David Hernandez pitched well for six innings, allowing just two runs on five hits. The Orioles' Melvin Mora and Matt Wieters contributed home runs. But none of that mattered when the Indians rallied in the ninth with a home run by Andy Marte. It was Jim Johnson's fourth blown save.
