O's Split Series with Cleveland

The O's took the final game of the four-game set against Cleveland, winning 6-3. It may not have been a series win, but at least it wasn't another loss.

Melvin Mora returned to the O's lineup, and delivered a key two-run double in the third inning to give the Birds a 3-1 lead. Mora is now just an RBI shy of reaching 100 for the season.

Spot-starter Brian Bass kept the O's in the game...Bass allowed four hits and three runs (one earned) in four and 1/3 innings, and ended up with a no-decision. The bullpen held on, and reliever Lance Cormier was credited with the win, while Jim Miller picked up his first MLB save.

The O's host the Minnesota Twins later tonight...Daniel Cabrera (8-9) is slated to take the mound...
