BALTIMORE (AP) – Adam Lind broke open a close game with a three-run homer in the sixth inning, and the Seattle Mariners beat the Baltimore Orioles 7-2 Thursday to complete another successful road series.

Leonys Martin also homered for the Mariners, who took two of three from Baltimore to improve to an AL-best 15-7 in away games. Seattle is 6-0-1 in seven road series.

Nathan Karns (4-1) allowed one run and four hits in five innings, striking out five and walking none. The right-hander is unbeaten in seven starts since April 9.

Pedro Alvarez and Adam Jones had RBIs for the Orioles, who have dropped three of four following a seven-game winning streak.
