BALTIMORE -- Scott Kazmir took a no-hitter into the seventh, and the Cleveland Indians scored two ninth-inning runs off Baltimore Orioles closer Jim Johnson to pull out a 4-3 victory Wednesday night.
A leadoff double in the seventh by Manny Machado was the only hit allowed by Kazmir, who gave up one unearned run in seven innings. He came out to the mound for the eighth but left with an apparent injury before throwing a pitch.
Baltimore promptly scored twice against Joe Smith (4-0) to take a 3-2 lead, but the Indians rallied against Johnson (2-6) in the ninth.
The Indians, now 40-37, face Baltimore again Thursday night at 7:05 p.m.
