PLAY IT AGAIN

The Baltimore Sun

Grand fashion: : The Orioles broke the game open in a seven-run sixth inning that included Aubrey Huff's fourth career grand slam. It was the 11th grand slam the Indians have allowed this season, most in the majors and extending their franchise record.

Doubling out of skid: : Orioles center fielder Adam Jones was in an 0-for-16 skid since he homered in his first at-bat coming off the disabled list Sept. 1. But in the third inning, Jones broke the slump with a double off Cleveland's Fausto Carmona. He added an RBI single in the sixth and a three-run homer in the eighth.

Taking it to the street: : Luke Scott's fourth-inning, 415-foot homer was his second this season to reach Eutaw Street. It was the 48th time in Camden Yards' history that it has happened and the eighth this season - the most in any year. The previous high was seven in 1996.

Catching a break: : Indians All-Star center fielder Grady Sizemore has one hit in his past 13 at-bats, so he was out of the starting lineup. Sizemore has 31 homers and 35 steals this season, but he doesn't hit the Orioles well - two homers, 15 RBIs and a .223 average in 94 at-bats.
