Late Homers Lift O's Over Tribe

It looked like it could be another long day for Chris Tillman after he served-up a homer to the first batter he faced on Saturday night, but it was the only run he allowed in a 3-1 victory over Cleveland.

Tillman (2-1) gave up just six hits in 6 2/3 innings, walking one while fanning four in a 116-pitch outing.

Jim Thome put the Birds on the board with a two-run shot in the seventh, and Ryan Flaherty padded the lead with a solo blast in the eighth. Both Thome and Flaherty have now homered in back-to-back games.

The O's have won four straight and sit alone in second place in the East. Zach Britton looks to bounce back from a four-inning effort his last time out and give the O's a series win on Sunday afternoon. The two clubs wrap-up the four-game set on Monday night.
