BALTIMORE, April 20 (UPI) -- Nolan Reimold
delivered a go-ahead two-run double Saturday, boosting the Baltimore Orioles over the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-5 in the first game of a doubleheader.
With the score tied 5-5 in the eighth inning, Chris Davis started a rally with a one-out double against Paco Rodriguez (0-1). After Ronald Belisario relieved, J.J. Hardy drew a walk and both runners advanced on a passed ball.
Pinch-hitter Nate McLouth was intentionally walked to get to Reimold, but he crossed up the strategy by lacing a pitch down the right-field line, chasing home Davis and Hardy.
Reimold and Hardy each finished with three RBI for Baltimore, which took a win in a game rescheduled from Friday due to rain.
Darren O'Day (2-0) got the final two outs in the eighth to earn the victory and Jim Johnson picked up his seventh save with a 1-2-3 ninth.
Andre Ethier smacked a three-run homer and Matt Kemp went 3-for-5 with a run scored for the Dodgers.
