Orioles rally to beat Athletics 5-2
Orioles use 5-run 9th to rally past Athletics 5-2
By The Associated Press

BALTIMORE (AP) ' Wilson Betemit hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning after Matt Wieters doubled in two runs, giving the Baltimore Orioles an unlikely 5-2 comeback victory over the Oakland Athletics on Sunday.

Oakland starter Bartolo Colon took a four-hit shutout into the ninth without allowing a runner past second base.

After J.J. Hardy led off with an infield hit and Nick Markakis struck out, Adam Jones hit a chopper down the third-base line that Colon collected before throwing wildly to first. The single and error put runners at second and third and ended Colon's afternoon.



Grant Balfour (0-1) entered and promptly gave up a double to left by Wieters that tied it. After Chris Davis received an intentional walk, Betemit hit a liner to right-center that bounced off the top of the wall ' a home run, according to the ground rules at Camden Yards.
