Chris Davis drove in the tiebreaking run on a fielder’s choice grounder in a wild five-run fifth inning, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied for a 7-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday night.

The Orioles used six hits and two errors to erase a 3-2 deficit in the fifth, salvaging a split in the four-game series. The inning also included the ejection of Manny Machado and saw Adam Jones called out on the go-ahead grounder for sliding wide of second base to break up a potential double play that wound up plating the go-ahead run.

Nick Markakis, Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy also had RBIs during the comeback.

Miguel Gonzalez (6-3) won for the fourth time in five decisions. He allowed three runs on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings, walking none and matching a career high with nine strikeouts.

Lonnie Chisenhall and Mike Aviles homered for the Indians. Chisenhall had three hits.

Ryan Flaherty drove in two runs for Baltimore.

Chisenhall homered to right with two outs in the second, a 430-foot shot that landed on Eutaw Street and gave the Indians a 1-0 lead.

Baltimore went ahead 2-1 on Flaherty’s two-run single in the bottom of the inning. Davis drew a leadoff walk, Wieters singled and Hardy moved the runners up with a sacrifice bunt before Flaherty’s two-out single up the middle.

The Indians tied it at 2 on Chisenhall’s double in the fourth. Michael Brantley doubled to lead off the inning and Chisenhall sent a ball off the right-field wall to plate him.

Aviles led off the fifth with a line-drive homer to left, his fifth homer of the season.
