MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Manny Machado had a tiebreaking RBI single in Baltimore's three-run 10th inning as the Orioles rallied for a 9-6 win over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night.
Machado — who stayed in the game after fouling a ball off his ankle in the fifth — rolled a single into right field that scored Chris Dickerson and broke a 6-all tie. Nick Markakis added a sacrifice fly and Adam Jones an RBI double to cap the scoring in the 10th. Tommy Hunter (3-1) didn't allow a run in 2 1-3 innings. Jim Johnson pitched a scoreless bottom of the 10th for his 35th consecutive save — dating back to last season — to set an Orioles franchise record.
Anthony Swarzak (1-1) allowed all three runs in the 10th. Baltimore scored all its runs in the last five innings after trailing 6-0 to start the sixth.
