Bud Norris stayed unbeaten with Baltimore and Nate McLouth homered and had three RBIs, leading the Orioles to a 7-2 win over the reeling Cleveland Indians on Monday night in a matchup of two teams scrapping for an AL wild-card berth.

Norris (10-10) allowed one run -- a homer to Jason Kipnis -- and four hits in seven innings. He is 4-0 since the Orioles got from Houston at the July 31 trading deadline.

Matt Wieters hit a two-run homer and Brian Roberts drove in two runs for the Orioles, who came in three games behind Oakland and Tampa Bay in the wild-card race.

The Indians lost for the sixth time in seven games and could be without All-Star Justin Masterson (14-10). He left in the second with what the team said is "soreness" in his rib area.
