MLB: Baltimore 4, Houston 3


BALTIMORE, July 30 (UPI) -- Chris Davis delivered a go-ahead two-run homer Tuesday and Baltimore got an efficient start from Wei-Yin Chen in its 4-3 win over Houston.

The Orioles were down 3-2 in the sixth when Nick Markakis coaxed a leadoff walk from Astros starter Lucas Harrell.


One out later, Davis sliced a pitch into the first row of the left-field stands for his 38th homer of the season and first since the All-Star Game break.

J.J. Hardy also drove in two runs for Baltimore, which took the opener of a three-game series.

Chen (6-3) remained on a hot streak with a third win in four appearances since returning from the disabled list, yielding three runs on seven hits over 7 1/3 innings. The left-hander walked one and struck out nine.

Jim Johnson tossed a 1-2-3 ninth for his 36th save.

Harrell (5-11) was tagged for four runs on just two hits over 5 1/3 frames.

Jose Altuve knocked in a pair of runs for Houston.
