Tillman wins 5th straight, Orioles beat Mariners 5-2
BALTIMORE (AP) Chris Tillman won his fifth straight start with another solid performance against his former team and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Seattle Mariners 5-2 on Wednesday night.
Mark Trumbo and Matt Wieters hit back-to-back homers for the Orioles, whose 17-7 record at Camden Yards is the best home mark in the major leagues. Wieters also had two doubles for his first three-hit game this season.
Tillman was drafted by Seattle in 2006 and traded to Baltimore two years later with Adam Jones for Erik Bedard. Since then, he has made the Mariners regret the deal, going 7-0 in nine career starts against them.
Tillman (6-1) allowed two runs on four hits with six strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings. Closer Zach Britton relieved Brach Brach and worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth. Britton got his 11th save by recording five outs.
Taijuan Walker (2-3) allowed four runs on five hits over five innings.
