The O's bats came to life in a 10-2 drubbing of Cleveland on Friday night.
The two clubs were tied at one after an inning before the Birds exploded with a six-run third and two more in the fourth to take a commanding lead. Jim Thome connected for his first homer as an Oriole in the fourth inning, the 610th of his career.
Miguel Gonzalez picked up his second win after holding the Tribe to two solo home runs in 6 2/3 innings. Gonzalez (2-1) gave up seven hits, walked two and fanned five in a 114-pitch performance.
The Birds have now won three straight on the road after dropping the first two to Minnesota. Chris Tillman takes the mound and looks to bounce back from his shortest outing of the season.
