Tigers blow 6-zip lead and fall 8-7 to the O's

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP) -- Adam Jones and Manny Machado homered, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied from a six-run deficit to beat the trade-ravaged Detroit Tigers 8-7 Friday night.
   Down 6-0 in the fourth inning, the Orioles teed off against the pitching-poor Tigers and went ahead 7-6 in the sixth when Machado hit a two-run drive off rookie Jose Valdez (0-1), making his big league debut.
   One night earlier, Detroit blew most of a 9-2 advantage in a one-run victory.
   It was the sixth win in seven games for the Orioles, who earlier in the day bolstered their roster for a playoff run by obtaining outfielder Gerardo Parra from Milwaukee before the non-waiver deadline.
