Phillies Break Skid By Beating Orioles

Jim Thome broke loose in a big way, Shane Victorino homered and drove in five runs, and the Philadelphia Phillies emphatically ended a season-worst six-game losing streak by beating the Baltimore Orioles 9-6 on Friday night.

Thome doubled twice, legged out an infield hit and got his first RBI of the season. Mike Fontenot also homered to the delight of a Camden Yards crowd full of spirited Phillies fans.

Chris Davis and J.J. Hardy homered for the Orioles, who lost for the ninth time in 12 games.

The Phillies hit for the cycle, and then some, in the second inning alone — a homer, a triple, three doubles and a single. Philadelphia scored six times, with Fontenot’s two-run shot coming right after his foul fly fell beyond Hardy as left fielder Endy Chavez backed off.
