Norris, Orioles overpower Indians 7-2

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - 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 2 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 6 of 7. All-Star Justin Masterson (14-10) left in the second with what the team said is "soreness" in his rib area.
