Updated: Sunday, August 17 2014, 05:11 PM EDT

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Rookie Kevin Gausman pitched six strong innings and the Baltimore Orioles salvaged the series finale, beating the Cleveland Indians 4-1 on Sunday to avoid being swept for the first time since May.


Gausman (7-4) allowed just one run and two hits as the AL East-leading Orioles got back in the win column after scoring just one run in their previous two games.


J.J. Hardy hit a two-out RBI single and the slumping Chris Davis added an RBI double in the sixth to rally the Orioles, who were blanked over the first five by Danny Salazar (4-6).


Steve Pearce and Jonathan Schoop homered for Baltimore.


Orioles reliever Darren O'Day pitched a perfect seventh, Andrew Miller struck out the side in the eighth and Zach Britton finished the combined two-hitter for his 26th save.
