BALTIMORE (AP) -- Miguel Tejada had a season-high four hits, ended a long home run drought and drove in four runs to lead the Baltimore Orioles past the Florida Marlins 11-5 Thursday night.
Tejada singled in a run and scored in the third inning, singled in the fourth, singled and scored in the sixth and hit a three-run homer in the seventh. The drive ended a career-long streak of 205 at-bats without a home run.
Coming into the game, Tejada had only one RBI in his last 99 at-bats.
Adam Jones had three hits and a homer, and backup catcher Craig Tatum had a career-high three hits for the Orioles, who previously had reached double figures in runs only once -- on May 1 in a 12-9 win over Boston.
Florida's three-game winning streak ended under a barrage of 17 hits, including seven in a five-run third inning. The Marlins are 1-1 under interim manager Edwin Rodriguez, who took over when Fredi Gonzalez was fired Wednesday.
