Machado homers, Tillman Ks 7 as Orioles down Red Sox 3-2
BOSTON (AP) Manny Machado hit a two-run home run, Chris Tillman struck out seven and the Baltimore Orioles snapped a three-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.
Jonathan Schoop added a solo homer in the eighth inning for the Orioles.
The teams entered the three-game series tied atop the American League East. Baltimore has won five of the eight meetings with Boston this season.
Tillman (9-1) went seven innings to get the victory. He kept the Red Sox lineup off balance with an assortment of fastballs, sliders and curves. His lone mistake was a home run in the seventh to Jackie Bradley, Jr.
Baltimore's bullpen gave one run back in the eighth, but Zach Britton was able close things out to earn his 20th save in 20 tries.
David Price (7-4) took the loss, despite finishing with 11 strikeouts in eight innings and retiring 19 straight at one point.
