Leong continued pitching for the Orioles in the third, facing the top of the Indians batting order.  Stevens struck out swinging and Tracy was called out on strikes for two away.  Rothenbuhler hit a hard grounder down the third base line for a double, and Copple brought him home with a long fly triple to left field.  Copple was stranded on third when Maximov was called out on strikes, and the Indians were again held to a single run.

Rothenbuhler pitched the third inning for the Indians with Hansen leading off for the Orioles.  Hansen took first when he was hit by a pitch and then stole second with Cole at the plate.  Cole's bouncing grounder to second held up for a single and advanced Hansen to third.  Leong's grounder to third scored Hansen and was good for a single.  Leong stole second and was held there and Cole at third when Rohde flied to Greenley at third and the catch was made for one away.  Giuntini scored both runners with a ground ball single to second, then advanced to second as the Indians attempted a play at the plate on Leong.  Charney flied to center for a double advancing Giuntini to third.  A passed pitch to Ratto allowed Giuntini to steal home, and then a missed throw to first allowed Ratto to stretch his grounder to short into a double, scoring Charney.  Dietrich grounded back to the mound, but the ball was mishandled and Dietrich made second base and Ratto scored as the pick-off throw went awry.  Tzvetkov grounded through the gap to center for a single and advanced Dietrich to third.  Carlise popped up to the pitcher and Rothenbuhler made the catch for two away.  Tzvetkov stole second before Andrada walked to load the bases.  Hansen made his second appearance at the plate in the inning and his grounder to short scored and he beat the throw to first for a single, scoring Dietrich and Tzvetkov.  Cole grounded to Tracy at second and was thrown out at first, and the Orioles were retired after batting through their roster and scoring eight runs for a ten run lead over the Indians.

 

The Indians went three up and three down in the fourth as the Orioles brought good fielding against the Indians offense.  Leong continued as pitcher for the Orioles and Greenley led off for the Indians with a grounder to second but he was thrown out at first.  Snediker flied out to first and Arens followed with a grounder to first for the force out.  The score remained twelve to two, Orioles.

 

The Orioles added to their lead in the bottom of the fourth.  Michael Copple came in to pitch for the Indians.  Leong led off for the Orioles, singling on a grounder through the gap to left field.  Rohde struck out, but not before Leong stole second.  Giuntini doubled on a fly to center, scoring Leong, and then stole third before Charney flied to right field for an in the park home run.  Ratto flied to right field bringing up Dietrich, who struck out for two away.  Tzvetkov grounded past the short stop for a single and advanced Ratto to second.  Carlise followed with a line drive to center to load the bases.  Andrada flied to deep right, scoring the men on base, but was tagged out by Maximov at the plate.

 

The Indians were again retired three up three down in the fifth inning.  Park struck out swinging, and Hommert flied out to second.  Thiering was called out on strikes and the Indians went into the bottom of the fifth trailing by sixteen runs.

 

Arens pitched the fifth inning for the Indians.  Hansen led off for the Orioles and struck out swinging.  Cole popped up to first and Copple made the catch for two away.  Leong took a base on balls, but was stranded when Rohde grounded back to Arens and he connected with Copple for the force out at first.  The score remained eighteen to two after five innings played.

 

The Indians tried to rally in the sixth but were denied.  Tzvetkov came in to pitch for the Orioles, striking out Bergstrom.  Stevens hit a grounder back to the mound, but beat the throw to first to give the Indians a base runner.  Tracy took his turn at bat, and Stevens was tagged out trying to steal second before Tracy walked when he was hit by a pitch.  Tracy was able to steal second with Rothenbuhler at the plate, but was held at second when Rothenbuhler hit a short bouncer down the third base line.  Copple followed, but any hope of a rally was extinguished when his pop fly to third was dropped but Tracy was out on the force play as Rothenbuhler moved to second.  The final score was Orioles eighteen, Indians two.

 

It was a frustrating day for the Indians, who seemed unable to catch a break and weren't able to make very many for themselves.

Copple took over the pitching duties for the Indians in the bottom of the fourth.  Langfeld led off with a grounder to second and was thrown out at first.  Morgan walked, but was thrown out at second on the force play when Cunningham hit a grounder to Tracy .  Bailey popped up and Copple made the catch to retire the Angels with one stranded and no runs scored, Indians ahead by a score of six to none.

 

The Indians nearly doubled their run total in the fifth inning.  Platt came in to pitch for the Angels and the Indians were at the top of the order with Stevens leading off.  Stevens single turned into a double when the force throw to first was missed.  Tracy batted Stevens in with a double line drive to center, and then scored when Rothenbuhler stretched a triple into a home run.  Copple walked, but was thrown out stealing second with Maximov at the plate.  Platt walked Maximov  and Greenley’s line drive down the first base brought him home and was good for a double.  Snediker was called out on strikes, and then Greenley advanced to third when Arens singled to shallow left, giving the Indians runners on first and third.  Arens stole second and the bases were loaded when Park passed on full count pitch to gain a base on balls.  Another full count pitch to Hommert missed the strike zone and Greenley scored as Hommert walked.  Bergstrom struck out swinging, stranding the runners and halting the Indians scoring at five runs, for a game total of eleven.

 

The Angels went three up and three down in the bottom of the fifth.  Jaber hit a grounder off of Copple’s pitch, but the throw to first was off the mark and he was thrown out attempting to take advantage of the error by stretching the play to third.  Platt grounded back to Copple and was thrown out at first.  Kaake struck out and at the end of five the score was Indians eleven, Angels none.
