BALTIMORE (AP) — Andrés Giménez hit a three-run homer, Zach Plesac had eight strikeouts over six innings and the Cleveland Guardians beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 to win their first series at Camden Yards since 2018.
Giménez staked Cleveland to a 3-0 lead with a first-inning drive off lefty Dean Kremer following a single and a walk. That proved to be enough of a cushion for Plesac and three relievers in a combined four-hitter.
The Guardians took two of three from the Orioles to move within a win of .500 for the first time since mid-May.
Ryan Mountcastle homered for the Orioles, who went hitless over the final four innings.
Next up for the Guardians? They’ll be taking on the Texas Rangers at home Monday.
