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 bizarre sequence started with Baltimore leading 2-1 in the top of the third. Ramon Hernandez hit a line drive to center field that Indians outfielder Grady Sizemore caught and Nick Markakis, who was on third, tagged up and headed for home and appeared to cross the plate before Miguel Tejada was doubled off first. Yet, plate umpire Marvin Hudson waved off the run. The umpiring crew conferred separately with Baltimore manager Sam Perlozzo and Cleveland's Eric 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. The Indians then announced they were playing the game under protest.

White Sox slugger Jim Thome was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a rib cage injury after Chicago's 3-0 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night.

He re-aggravated a right rib cage injury that caused him to miss the two previous games. The White Sox recalled outfielder Ryan Sweeney from Triple-A Charlotte. Sweeney hit .256 with two homers for Charlotte.
Seattle starter Jeff Weaver recorded just one out in an 8-3 loss to Kansas City on Saturday, while giving up seven hits and six runs.
