“I wanted to go somewhere where they had a chance to win no matter what,” Lynn said. “It seemed like the perfect fit, and I look forward to doing what I have to do, which is take the ball when it is my turn.”

Baltimore’s Chris Tillman walked six in two innings, allowing four runs and three hits. Manny Machado had two hits, including a double.

Ryan LaMarre singled and drove in a pair of runs and Miguel Sano doubled.
