Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Drew Stubbs' RBI fielder's choice groundout in the top of the ninth inning helped the Cleveland Indians slip past the Baltimore Orioles, 4-3, Wednesday in the third installment of a four-game set at Camden Yards.

The Indians entered the ninth trailing 3-2 after Baltimore had a two-run rally of its own in the eighth. Jim Johnson (2-6) took the hill for the hosts and issued a leadoff walk, then a double from Jason Giambi. Carlos Santana was intentionally walked to load the bases, but Cleveland twice grounded out to second. Lonnie Chisenhall's chopper tied the game at 3-3 and Stubbs just beat out a double play attempt to allow the go-ahead run to score.

Jason Kipnis hit a two-run homer, while Joe Smith (4-0) earned the win despite giving up both Baltimore runs in the bottom of the eighth. Vinnie Pestano retired the side in the ninth to secure his fifth save of the season.

Chris Davis, Manny Machado and Nick Markakis all drove in one run apiece for the Orioles, who have dropped five of six.
