 CLEVELAND (AP) -Umpires added a run to Baltimore's total three innings after it appeared to be waved off in the third and the Orioles beat Cleveland 7-4 Saturday night.
The Indians played the game under protest after crew chief Ed Montague called the official scorer in the bottom of the sixth to add the third-inning run which scored on a sacrifice fly.
``There's going to be a tremendous follow up with this and we'll see if we can get it figured out,'' Cleveland manager Eric Wedge said.
It wasn't immediately clear if it was a miscommunication between the official scorer and the umpires, or if the umpires changed their earlier decision.
The bizarre sequence started with Baltimore leading 2-1 in the top of the third. Nick Markakis was on third base and Miguel Tejada on first with one out when Ramon Hernandez hit a line drive to center field.
Indians outfielder Grady Sizemore made a diving catch. Markakis tagged up, headed for home and appeared to cross the plate before Tejada doubled off first. Plate umpire Marvin Hudson waved off the run.
The umpiring crew conferred separately with Baltimore manager Sam Perlozzo and Wedge twice after the top of the third. After the Indians scored a run in the fifth to tie it at 2, it was announced in the bottom of the sixth that the Orioles' run in the third had counted, giving Baltimore a 3-2 lead.
That's when the Indians announced they were playing the game under protest.
Corey Patterson hit a two-run double in the eighth inning to help the Orioles snap a five-game losing streak and end the Indians' winning streak at six.
The Indians took a 4-3 lead in the sixth on Jhonny Peralta's two-run homer, but Baltimore scored twice in the eighth. Tejada started the rally with a single off Fernando Cabrera (1-1). Jay Payton singled with one out before a groundout moved the runners to second and third. Patterson doubled to right on an 0-2 pitch from Aaron Fultz.
Hernandez added a two-run double in the ninth off Roberto Hernandez.
Jamie Walker (1-0) pitched one-third of an inning for the win. Chris Ray worked the ninth for his seventh save.
The Orioles took a 1-0 lead in the first on Hernandez's single. Tejada added an RBI single in the third.
Victor Martinez drove in Cleveland's first run with a single in the first. Casey Blake tied it in the fifth with a double.
Notes: Indians OF David Dellucci (sore left calf) is expected to be in the lineup Sunday. He hasn't started a game since April 21. ... Orioles RHP Jaret Wright (sore shoulder) is expected to come off the disabled list and start Sunday's game. ... Baltimore SS Miguel Tejada played in his 1,104th consecutive game Saturday night, which moved him past Joe Sewell for the sixth-longest streak in baseball history.
