Sept. 25, 2009 at 10:33 PM   |   Comments

CLEVELAND, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Fausto Carmona gave up nine hits but just two runs in six innings Friday, helping the Cleveland Indians to a 4-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

In his best outing this season, Carmona (9-12) threw 92 pitches, walked one batter, struck out six and induced eight timely ground ball outs.

One of two hits by Luis Valbuena was a fifth-inning solo homer. Lou Marson had two RBI.

A run scored on Melvin Mora's fifth-inning error, while Matt LaPorta added two hits for the Indians, who snapped an 11-game losing streak, one shy of the franchise record set in 1931.

Nick Markakis homered and Michael Aubrey drove in a run to lead Baltimore, which has lost eight in a row.

The losing pitcher was starter David Hernandez (4-9).
