Davis Hits 23rd Homer as Orioles Beat Red Sox 6-3

Posted:

BALTIMORE (AP) - Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 23rd home run, Nick Markakis had four hits and scored three runs, and the Baltimore Orioles beat Jon Lester and the Boston Red Sox 6-3 Sunday.

Manny Machado extended his hitting streak to a career-high 14 games and drove in a run for the Orioles, who took 3 of 4 from first-place Boston to move within 1½ games of the AL East lead. Baltimore has won six straight series over the Red Sox, dating to last year.

Davis homered on a 3-1 pitch from Lester with a runner on to give the Orioles a 3-0 lead in the third inning. It was his 100th career homer and seventh in the last 10 games against Boston. Davis also doubled in a run in the fifth to give him 60 RBIs.
