Orioles slip past Astros 5-4 in 10 innings

BALTIMORE (AP) - Steve Clevenger hit an RBI double in the 10th inning to extend the Baltimore Orioles' winning streak to five games with a 5-4 victory over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.

J.J. Hardy had an infield single with one out in the 10th before Clevenger hit a double down the right field line off Paul Clemens (0-1).

The Astros have lost seven of their past eight games.

Houston's Jose Altuve hit a two-out, two RBI single in the ninth inning off Baltimore closer Tommy Hunter that gave the Astros a 4-3 lead.

However, Astros right-hander Anthony Bass loaded the bases with two outs on two singles and a walk before pinch hitter Delmon Young tied the game with an infield single.
