The Orioles won Friday night at Angel Stadium the same way they have so many times this season, and will have to in order to stay atop the American League East. They hit all of the home runs.
Back-to-back home runs by right fielder Joey Rickard and shortstop Manny Machado opened the game that way, and first baseman Chris Davis gave the Orioles the last lead they’d need in a 9-4 win before 40,987 in Anaheim.
"Runs are runs, any time you score them," manager Buck Showalter said. "After the first couple of innings here, you've got to really earn a home run in this park and Chris hitting a left-handed pitcher the other way is pretty impressive."
