Powered by a one-hit shutout from Charles Nagy, the Cleveland Indians knock off the Baltimore Orioles, 6-0, at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
Nagy earned his 12th win of the year with his second consecutive complete game for the Tribe. He struck out seven and walked a pair on the day, giving up one lone single with one out in the bottom of the seventh to Glenn Davis.
The Indians struck through for a run in the first inning when Albert Belle doubled home Mark Lewis against Orioles starter Arthur Rhodes. Belle was joined by Carlos Baerga in the top of the third as one-half of back-to-back homers off of the Baltimore lefty to increase the Indians lead to 4-0. Lewis led off the fifth with a solo blast off of Rhodes and Mark Whiten knocked in Belle later in the inning on a bases loaded groundout to cap the scoring.
Nagy’s one-hitter, the only one of his career, came on the anniversary of the eighth thrown in the career of Bob Feller, who did so against the Chicago White Sox in 1946.
