BALTIMORE -- Mild-mannered Manny Machado felt he let his team down by losing his temper. Nike Air Force One Basse . Instead, the second-year third basemans first career ejection might have been the spark the Baltimore Orioles needed. Chris Davis drove in the tiebreaking run on a fielders choice grounder in a wild five-run fifth inning, and the Orioles rallied for a 7-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday night. Baltimore used six hits and two errors to erase a 3-2 deficit in the fifth, salvaging a split in the four-game series. The inning also saw Machado get tossed by home plate umpire Will Little and Adam Jones called out on the go-ahead grounder for sliding wide of second base to break up a potential double play that wound up plating the decisive run. Machado wasnt around to see the completion of the rally, something he said he regrets. "I swung at a bad pitch (and) I thought I fouled it off," Machado said. "Obviously, I looked back on the replay, and I didnt. Something that I said wrong to the umpire, and I have to pay the consequences for it. Let my team down -- obviously, something that wont happen again." Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Machado would learn from his youthful transgression. "Ive seen 10-, 15-year veterans get frustrated with some calls," Showalter said. "Its all lessons learned. Hes 20 years old." Nick Markakis, Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy also had RBIs during the comeback, which prevented the Indians from a fifth straight series victory for the first time since 2006. "When you play teams like that, when you make a mistake or two, they can make you pay for it," said Cleveland manager Terry Francona. "And thats what happened. Miguel Gonzalez (6-3) won for the fourth time in five decisions. He allowed three runs on nine hits over 6 2-3 innings, walking none and matching a career high with nine strikeouts. Lonnie Chisenhall and Mike Aviles homered for the Indians. Chisenhall had three hits. Ryan Flaherty drove in two runs for Baltimore. Chisenhall homered to right with two outs in the second, a 430-foot shot that landed on Eutaw Street and gave the Indians a 1-0 lead. Baltimore went ahead 2-1 on Flahertys two-run single in the bottom of the inning. Davis drew a leadoff walk, Wieters singled and Hardy moved the runners up with a sacrifice bunt before Flahertys two-out single up the middle. The Indians tied it at 2 on Chisenhalls double in the fourth. Michael Brantley doubled to lead off the inning and Chisenhall sent a ball off the right-field wall to plate him. Aviles led off the fifth with a line-drive homer to left, his fifth of the season. Clevelands lead, however, was short-lived. "It happened so fast, same thing last night," said Chisenhall. "Its the way the AL East plays. Runs just show up on the board." The Orioles went ahead 7-3 with the five-run fifth, but lost Machado, who was ejected by Little for arguing a third-strike call, ending a streak of 1,206 innings played, the longest active streak in the majors. "When I heard about it, the streak I had going, obviously its devastating," Machado said. "But I just caused that on myself. Thats something that ... that I just have to pay the consequences for, and I did." Singles by Flaherty and Nate McLouth put runners at the corners for Machado, who struck out swinging and was tossed when he argued that he foul-tipped the ball. Markakis followed with an RBI single to centre for a 3-3 tie and Jones broken-bat single to right loaded the bases. Davis then beat shortstop Aviles relay to first after Jones was called out for abandoning the baseline, allowing McLouth to score for a 4-3 lead. Aviles was charged with an error for coming off the bag early on a throw from second baseman Jason Kipnis that would have forced Jones. Wieters then cracked a run-scoring double into the right-field corner, with Davis scoring and Wieters reaching third when Drew Stubbs bobbled the ball. Hardys infield single, a tapper to the left of the mound, made it 7-3 and chased Corey Kluber. Kluber (6-5) yielded seven runs -- six earned -- in 4 2/3 innings, ending a steak of three straight wins. He allowed 11 hits, walked one and struck out four. "I think there were just some crucial situations there in that fifth inning where I didnt execute pitches, and theyre obviously a very good offensive team and they put good swings on them," Kluber said. NOTES: The game was delayed by rain for 78 minutes in the bottom of the seventh inning. ... With his first-inning single, Kipnis has reached base in 29 consecutive games. ... The Orioles re-signed RHP Freddy Garcia to a minor league deal and he will report to Triple-A Norfolk. Garcia was optioned to Norfolk on Monday, and because he is a veteran had the option of declining the assignment and becoming a free agent. ... Before the game, the Indians activated RHP Chris Perez (right shoulder soreness) from the 15-day disabled list and optioned LHP T.J. House to Triple-A Columbus. They also traded IF John McDonald, who was designated for assignment Wednesday, to the Phillies for cash or a player to be named. ... Francona said RHP Trevor Bauer will start the first game of Fridays doubleheader and RHP Carlos Carrasco would start the nightcap. Bauer will be recalled from Triple-A and Carrasco will be added as the teams 26th man. ... Brian Roberts (right hamstring) will return from the DL this weekend and become the Orioles starting second baseman, Showalter said. ... RHP Dylan Bundy, the Orioles prized pitching prospect, underwent Tommy John ligament replacement surgery Thursday. The procedure was performed by Dr. James Andrews in Gulf Breeze, Fla. ... Showalter said rookie LHP T.J. McFarland would start Fridays series opener against the Yankees. Scarpe Nike Air Force 1 . -- The Bishops Gaiters are showing they belong among the countrys top varsity football teams. Nike Air Force One Alte Nere . The Clippers were angry about blowing a big lead; the Kings didnt like being in that kind of hole and nearly digging themselves out only to lose. http://www.airforcescarpeonline.it/nike-air-force-1-mid.html .ca. Kerry,  Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count?  All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not.Ben Duckett must adjust his technique quickly after three very similar dismissals to off-spin in his short Test career, says Michael Atherton. The left-hander was bowled by Ravichandran Ashwin for just five as England slumped to 103-5 on day two of the second Test, still 352 runs shy of Indias first innings total.It is the second time in as many innings that Ashwin has removed the England No 4 while he was also bowled twice by teenage off-spinner Mehedi Hasan during the tour of Bangladesh, the first of which showed remarkable parallels to his latest wicket. It is amazing how quickly the game at the highest level presents challenges, Atherton told Sky Sports. In his very first innings in Chittagong in Test cricket, he showed the off-spinner his stumps and paid the price, and he has done that twice here now. Duckett had similar problems against Mehedi Hasan in Bangladesh A fundamental principal of batting is that if you keep getting out in similar ways then you have to do something about it.Hes got to look at that defensive technique to the off-spinner, hes got to keep his pad more in the line of the ball but play with his bat out in front of it so hes taking the lbw out of the equation.At the moment he is showing too much of his stumps and with two quality off-spinners, Ashwin - the No 1 bowler in the world - and Jayant Yadav, thats going to be a problem. Paul Farbrace admits that Ben Duckett must improve his batting technique to succeed in Test cricket Joe Root was Englands top performer with the bat, making 53, but the manner of his dismissal invited criticism as he was caught by the man halfway back to the boundary at mid off, attempting to go over the top.Hoowever, Atherton believes Root was right to be positive and look to force the field back. Nike Air Force 1 Offerte. .He got it wrong but I dont think you can be overly critical of what he tried to do because if you just sit there and allow Inidas spinners to swarm all over you, youre not doing anything, explained the former England captain.Youre not being proactive, youre not ticking the scoreboard over. What he is looking to do is get a boundary, get that man pushed back and then have the ability to turn over the strike. In a rare return to the nets, David Gower has some batting tips for struggling fellow left-hander Ben Duckett What weve always said is that two things are key: one your defence early on but secondly, you need to have boundary options to push the field back so you can then rotate the strike. He got the execution of the shot wrong but I wouldnt necessarily be critical of him trying to play it.The risk did not pay off, though, and Atherton admitted England have it all to do if they are to salvage something from the Test match.Ten out of the last 14 Tests, India have batted first and when they have batted first they have really swarmed all over their opponents, getting big first innings runs and unleashing the spinners, he said.Only once in that time have the opposition got over 300. I dont like to say England are doomed but theyve got a very difficult game ahead of them from here on in.
