BALTIMORE (AP) — Jonathan Schoop hit a tiebreaking two-run triple in the seventh inning, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied from a five-run deficit to beat the Detroit Tigers 7-5 Thursday night for their fifth straight victory.

After hitting 12 homers in their previous three games, the Orioles stormed back without benefit of the long ball. Schoop’s triple was the only extra-base hit in a seventh inning that included five singles.

Baltimore trailed 5-0 in the sixth. Detroit starter Mike Pelfrey allowed two runs in five and one third innings, but the collapse of the Detroit bullpen left the right-hander winless in 15 starts since August 12th.

Alex Wilson gave up three runs in the seventh and Justin Wilson (0-1) yielded the last two.
