Recap: Baltimore vs. Philadelphia

Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Matt Wieters clubbed a game-winning RBI double in the bottom of the 10th inning Sunday as the Orioles downed the Phillies, 5-4, to wrap up a three-game set at Camden Yards.

With the game knotted at 4-4, Adam Jones reached first on an error from Philadelphia third baseman Ty Wigginton and came around to score when Wieters lifted a fastball from Joe Savery (0-1) off the wall in right field.

"I knew if I was able to put one off the wall, Jonesy would be able to score with his speed from first," remarked Wieters about his game-winner.

Darren O'Day (4-0) got the win after firing a scoreless top of the 10th. Steve Tolleson crushed a three-run shot to tie the game in fourth while Ronny Paulino plated a run for the O's, who have won their last nine extra inning games.

Philadelphia starter Cliff Lee remains winless on the season after giving up four runs on seven hits with eight strikeouts over six frames. Hunter Pence knocked in two runs and Juan Pierre scored twice, but the Phillies lost for the eighth time in their last nine tries.

"We still have a long way to go but every loss hurts," admitted Pence. "We have to start winning some series."

After the Phillies failed to score with the bases loaded in the top of the first, Baltimore took advantage of its opportunity in the bottom half.

Lee retired the first two O's, but Jones and Wieters stroked consecutive singles before Paulino plated Jones with a base hit to left to give Baltimore a 1-0 lead.

Philadelphia capitalized on its opportunity with the bags packed in the second. Hector Luna singled to left with one out, Jimmy Rollins walked two batters later and Pierre followed with a single.

Pence then plated a pair with a single back up the middle before Jim Thome slapped a single the other way into left to score Pierre and give the Phillies a 3-1 lead.

The Phillies loaded the bases yet again in the fourth as Pierre singled before a pair of walks to Pence and Shane Victorino. Baltimore starter Jason Hammel then uncorked a wild pitch, allowing Pierre to race home from third to give the visitors a 4-1 lead.

Lee cruised after the first, retiring the O's in order over the next two frames before running into trouble in the fourth.

Mark Reynolds worked a two-out walk and Steve Pearce followed with a double before Tolleson's homer into the left-field seats tied the game, 4-4.

Game Notes

Lee has fanned at least six batters in nine straight starts...Hammel allowed four runs on six hits and five walks over six innings in the start...The O's nine-game extra inning win-streak marks a new franchise record...The Phillies went 3-for-11 with men in scoring position and stranded 11 base runners.
