Indians Vs. Orioles Final Score: Cleveland Falls Back To .500 After 3-1 Loss

The Cleveland Indians fell back to .500 for the first time in July on Saturday, as the visiting Baltimore Orioles edged out a 3-1 victory in the second game of the series.

Cleveland hitters could only muster one run offensively after producing just a pair in Friday's 10-2 blowout loss, and will now need to look to Sunday's game three to hopefully salvage the four-game series. Although starter Zach McAllister pitched well enough to win through 7.2 innings with six strikeouts and three earned runs, the 24-year-old youngster fell to 4-2 on the season after his team was unable to provide any tangible run support.

The lone bright spot of the evening came right before many fans were even settled into their seats, as leadoff hitter Shin-Soo Choo belted a solo home run to open the game in the bottom of the first inning. The blast signified Choo's 11th of the season, but represented just one of seven hits for the Indians total in the game.

Manny Acta will give the ball to right-hander Josh Tomlin for Sunday's pivotal afternoon game three, while the Orioles will send coveted lefty prospect Zach Britton to the mound.
