WASHINGTON (AP) — Chris Davis snapped a lengthy slump with a tiebreaking homer in the 11th inning, part of a six-run uprising that carried the Baltimore Orioles past the Washington Nationals 8-2 on Monday night.
Manny Machado had a career-high five hits, including a homer in the 11th, and Nelson Cruz hit his 28th home run to help the AL East-leading Orioles earn their seventh win in eight games.
Anthony Rendon homered for the Nationals, who lost for only the second time in nine games.
After Cruz led off the 11th with a broken-bat single off Craig Stammen (0-4), Davis worked the count full before launching a drive into the center-field seats to end a 2-for-38 funk. J.J. Hardy followed with a solo shot, Nick Markakis chased Stammen with an RBI double and Machado added a two-run drive off Aaron Barrett.
T.J. Macfarland (2-2) worked two scoreless innings for the win.
METS 4, BRAVES 3, 11 INNINGS
NEW YORK (AP) — Ruben Tejada singled home the winning run with two outs in the 11th inning after Curtis Granderson hit a tying homer in the eighth as the Mets beat Atlanta.
David Wright went deep early, Travis d'Arnaud had an RBI double and Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched seven shutout innings for the Mets, who have won three of four.
Freddie Freeman had three hits and a walk for the Braves, who have lost two straight after a nine-game winning streak. Andrelton Simmons singled twice for his sixth straight multihit game.
Carlos Torres (4-4) pitched two scoreless innings for the win.
Juan Lagares doubled off Anthony Varvaro (3-2) with one out in the 11th, and Lucas Duda was intentionally walked before Lagares went to third on d'Arnaud's long fly to center. Tejada lined the next pitch up the middle and tossed his helmet aside after rounding first.
