Wieters, McLouth power Orioles past Tribe

Wieters, McLouth power Orioles past Tribe

CLEVELAND -- Bud Norris stayed unbeaten as a starter with Baltimore and Nate McLouth homered and had three RBIs, leading the Orioles to a 7-2 win over the reeling Cleveland Indians on Monday night in a matchup of two teams scrapping for an AL wild-card berth.

Norris (10-10) allowed one run -- a homer to Jason Kipnis-- and four hits in seven innings. The right-hander improved to 4-0 as a starter with the Orioles, who acquired him at the July 31 trading deadline from Houston. He lost once in relief.

Matt Wieters hit a two-run homer in the ninth and Brian Roberts drove in two runs for the Orioles, who came in three games behind Oakland and Tampa Bay in the wild-card race.

The Indians have lost six of seven. All-Star Justin Masterson (14-10) left in the second with what the team said is "soreness" in his rib area.
