CLEVELAND -- The Orioles may never reach .500 again this season. Scott Erickson must be wondering if he'll ever get there, as well.

Hoping to apply another bandage to his wounded start this season, Erickson gave up a tie-breaking single to former teammate Roberto Alomar in the eighth inning and Manny Ramirez's second two-run homer to provide Cleveland with a 6-3 victory over the Orioles last night before 43,073 at Jacobs Field.
