Davis, Machado lead Orioles to 6-4 win over Indians
CLEVELAND – Chris Davis’ RBI double broke a seventh-inning tie, Manny Machado went 4 for 5 and the Baltimore Orioles ended a four-game losing streak with a 6-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Friday night.
Mark Trumbo followed Davis’ clutch hit with a two-run homer, his AL-leading 15th of the season, and a lineup tweak by Orioles manager Buck Showalter woke up a slumbering offense that scored nine runs in its losing streak.
Dylan Bundy (1-1) pitched 1 1/3 innings for his first major league win. Zach Britton pitched a perfect ninth for 13th save.
Cleveland scored in the second, fourth and fifth to tie the game, but Machado doubled off Zach McAllister (2-2). Davis’ double to right-center gave Baltimore the lead before Trumbo’s towering drive landed in the right field seats.
