Orioles win fourth straight as Jimenez toughens

BALTIMORE – Ubaldo Jimenez started Tuesday’s game by allowing five of the seven Atlanta Braves batters to reach base. It didn’t look like Jimenez would be around terribly long.

Jimenez fooled many, but especially the Braves by pitching six hitless innings and coming out with a 7-3 win before 28,592 at Oriole Park.

It was their fourth straight win.

Nick Markakis started Tuesday’s game as he did on Monday, by accepting a long, loud ovation. Instead of doubling, he singled to center. With one out, Freddie Freeman hit his 13th home run of the year for a 2-0 lead.

Initially, Freeman’s ball was ruled in play, and was called a home run on a crew chief review.

Jimenez, who had allowed 14 runs in seven innings in his last two starts, allowed one-out singles to A.J. Pierzynski and Jonny Gomes and hit Jace Peterson with a pitch to load the bases. Jimenez retired Chris Johnson on a fly ball to center.

Atlanta (46-54) had three baserunners in the next six innings, all on walks, and Jimenez (8-6), who hadn’t won in his last four starts, had his first win in July.

In his first game as a leadoff batter after four games in the third spot, Manny Machado singled. Jimmy Paredes walked, and Adam Jones lined out to first. Chris Davis hit a long three run homer to center, his 23rd, and the Orioles (50-49) led 3-2.

Julio Teheran (6-6) hit Travis Snider with a pitch, and with two outs walked Chris Parmelee and Caleb Joseph before Ryan Flaherty grounded out to end the inning.

Jones singled with two outs in the second, and Davis hit his second home run in as many innings, giving him his 24th of the season, his 10th multi-home run game of his career. The five RBIs tied his career high, and the Orioles took a 5-2 lead.

The Orioles extended the lead to 6-2 in the fifth when J.J. Hardy singled to extend his hitting streak to 11 games and scored on Joseph’s RBI single.

Machado reached on an error by third baseman Adonis Garcia to start the sixth, and after Paredes singled, Jones doubled to score Marchado, and the Orioles had a 7-2 lead.

Peterson’s RBI single in the eighth cut the Oriole lead to 7-3.

NOTES: Markakis was 2-for-4 with a walk. He is 4-for-9 in two games. … Mike Foltynewicz (3-2, 5.27) faces Chris Tillman (7-7, 4.71) on Wednesday night.

Orioles Roundup: O's acquire Keon Broxton from Mets

The Orioles made a flurry of moves before falling to the Yankees 7-5 Wednesday night.

Here is your latest news on Baltimore and New York:

Player Notes:

ORIOLES:

Baltimore acquired OF Keon Broxton from the Mets for international signing bonus slots. Broxton hit .143 in 34 games with New York this season before he was designated for assignment last week. The Orioles designated RHP Yefry Rodriguez for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Broxton. 

The Orioles transferred RHP Alex Cobb from the 10-day IL to the 60-day IL, meaning he won't be back until late June at the earliest. Cobb has been out since April 27 with a lumbar strain. Baltimore also claimed RHP Chandler Shepherd off waivers for the Cubs and optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk. 

YANKEES:

Giancarlo Stanton has been pulled away from his rehab assignment with High-A Tampa and placed back on the 10-day injured list with left calf tightness. Per manager Aaron Boone, Stanton will be shut down for the next 7-10 days. 

Boone also told reporters Zach Britton was unavailable for Wednesday's game against his former team, and CC Sabathia could miss his next start due to knee trouble.
