Recap: Baltimore vs. Los Angeles

Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - Manny Machado belted a three-run homer and drove in four runs, and Chris Davis added a solo shot in Baltimore's 6-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the sweep of a day/night doubleheader.

In the afternoon contest, Nolan Reimold's go-ahead, two-run double in the bottom of the eighth inning lifted Baltimore to a 7-5 win. Reimold added a solo homer, while J.J. Hardy smacked a two-run shot and Chris Davis tallied three hits and scored three times for the Orioles.

The twinbill was made necessary due to Friday night's rainout.

Wei-Yin Chen (1-2) allowed three hits, a run along with four walks while striking out two over six innings in the night contest. Tommy Hunter tossed the final three innings for his first save of his career.

"We're just going to keep this same momentum going," Machado said. "It definitely helps that we came out with two games today."

Josh Beckett (0-3) was tagged for eight hits and all six runs over 5 2/3 innings, as the Dodgers lost their sixth in a row. Beckett has lost his last seven road decisions, last winning an away start on July 15, 2012 against Tampa Bay.

Carl Crawford was hit by a pitch to start the game, and he eventually scored in the first inning on an Adrian Gonzalez sacrifice fly to left field.

Davis' home run, his seventh of the year, traveled 448 feet to center field in the second. That distance is tied for the 11th longest home run, third-longest by an Oriole, in Camden Yards history.

Baltimore wasted a bases-loaded chance in the fourth, but went ahead the following inning. Nate McLouth walked, stole second and went to third on a throwing error by catcher A.J. Ellis. Machado followed with a double down the left-field line. One out later, Adam Jones doubled off the glove of Crawford as he neared the wall in left-center field. That plated Machado for a 3-1 lead.

Ryan Flaherty and McLouth singled with two outs in the sixth, and Machado followed with his homer to left field. That ended Beckett's night on the mound.

"That was his game at that point," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said about Beckett before he faced Machado. "That was pretty much his last hitter. He kept us in the game. He gave us a chance."

Hunter gave up three hits in the final three innings.
