Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Chris Davis' two home runs and five RBI helped
the Baltimore Orioles coast to a 13-3 blowout win over the Detroit Tigers in
the rubber match of a three-game series.
Davis registered his fourth and fifth RBI of the day on a two-run homer in the
ninth inning, while Chris Tillman (8-2) allowed three runs on seven hits and
three walks with one strikeout in five innings of work.
The Orioles had 17 hits in the series finale and have now won eight of their
last 11 games.
Taylor Teagarden's three-run homer in the fourth inning made it difficult for
Rick Porcello and the Tigers to mount a comeback. Porcello (4-4) had won
his previous two starts, but gave up six runs on nine hits and two home runs
in six innings to earn the loss.
Detroit's Matt Tuiasosopo hit a pinch-hit, two-run double in the sixth inning.
The Tigers have now lost three of their last five games.
