BALTIMORE -- Nick Markakis led off the 11th inning with a double and scored on a two-out bunt by Adam Jones, giving the Baltimore Orioles a 5-4 comeback win over the Seattle Mariners on Monday night.

The victory improved Baltimore's record under Buck Showalter to 10-4. The Orioles had lost two straight, their first skid since Showalter made his debut on Aug. 2.

Markakis doubled off Sean White (0-1) and advanced on a groundout by Ty Wigginton. After Corey Patterson grounded out against a drawn-in infield, Jones dropped a bunt down the third-base line that Jose Lopez failed to snare with his bare hand as Markakis sprinted home.

Matt Albers (5-3) worked the 11th to get the win.
