April 20, 2006|By JEFF ZREBIEC | JEFF ZREBIEC,SUN REPORTER

It had all the makings of another long night for the home team at Camden Yards. The Orioles trailed by four runs last night after the Cleveland Indians wreaked havoc on another starting pitcher, knocking out an ineffective Rodrigo Lopez and earning another shot at a troubled bullpen.

However, a night after being pounded into submission in a 14-run loss, the Orioles performed a remarkable about-face. They scored seven runs in the fifth inning, three in the sixth and five in the eighth on their way to an 18-9 victory before 19,510.
