BALTIMORE, April 28 (UPI) -- Jay Gibbons' two-run single in the eighth inning snapped a tie Wednesday night as Baltimore ended a three-game losing streak with a 3-1 win over Seattle.

Gibbons posted a .277 batting average in 2003, but has been mired in a slump thus far this season. Despite a .217 batting average, he ranks second on the Orioles with 15 RBI, two behind Rafael Palmeiro.

In this one, he came through against Shigetoshi Hasegawa (1-3). After Miguel Tejada led off the inning with a double and Palmeiro and Javy Lopez drew walks, Gibbons lined a 1-1 pitch into center field for his first hit in four games.

Kurt Ainsworth started for the Orioles and allowed one run and four runs in five innings. John Parrish (2-1) struck out two in three scoreless innings for the win and Jorge Julio tossed a perfect ninth for his third save in four opportunities.
