SEATTLE, July 4 (UPI) -- A solo home run in the top of the ninth by Robert Andino Tuesday carried the Baltimore Orioles to a 5-4 win over Seattle.

Andino's bomb to left field off Charlie Furbush (4-2) saved a roller-coaster win for the O's, whose starter, Wei-Yin Chen, took a perfect game into the seventh inning but wound up not being involved in the final decision.

Chen struck out nine batters but served up a one-out home run to Casper Wells to spoil the gem.

The victory went to Darren O'Day (5-0), who recorded the final out of the eighth inning.

Jim Johnson picked up his 24th save.

Matt Wieters had a two-run single in the sixth for the Orioles, who ensured their first winning record at the All-Star break since 2005.

Seattle totaled five hits in the game, including a double by Michael Saunders that chased Chen from the game.
