BALTIMORE, May 11 (UPI) -- Home runs by Nick Markakis and Nick Johnson in back-to-back innings Friday brought the Baltimore Orioles from behind to a 4-3 victory over Tampa Bay.

After winning 12 of 13 games, the Rays have lost five of six.

Tampa Bay took a 3-1 lead into the sixth, but Markakis hit a solo homer in that inning and Johnson drove a two-run shot to right in the seventh off reliever Joel Peralta (1-2).

It was Johnson's first home run of the year. He came into the game batting .122. Baltimore got a solo homer from Adam Jones in the second, his 10th home run of the season.

Darren O'Day (3-0), who worked the sixth inning in relief of Dana Eveland, got the win. Jim Johnson needed only eight pitches to record a perfect ninth and grab his 10th save.
