Manny Machado blasted his 22nd home run of the season on Friday, powering the Orioles to a come-from-behind 8-7 victory over the Tigers.

The Orioles fell behind 6-0 after the first four innings, but never gave up. Adam Jones clobbered a three-run homer in the fifth inning to cut the deficit to two runs, then Machado's two-run shot in the sixth put the O's on top to stay. Machado finished the night 2-for-3 plus a walk with a pair of runs scored and two RBI. He is now slashing a mighty impressive .293/.364/.518 with 22 homers and 54 RBI on the year.

Zach Britton slammed the door on the Tigers in the ninth inning on Friday, working a scoreless ninth inning to protect a one-run advantage.

Britton did allow a hit, but nothing more was to come of it. He has been outstanding this season, compiling a 1.71 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 48/9 K/BB ratio over his 42 innings while converting 27 of his 28 save chances.
Jul 31 - 10:47 PM

Wei-Yin Chen was hit hard in a no-decision against the Tigers on Friday, surrendering six runs on 10 hits in just 3 1/3 innings of work.

Despite getting knocked around the field, Chen did manage to punch out six without issuing a walk in the brief outing. It was easily the worst start of the year for the 30-year-old southpaw, who had surrendered more than three runs just once in his first 19 starts. Even after this debacle, he'll carry an impressive 3.24 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 102/26 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's start against the Athletics in Oakland.
Jul 31 - 10:42 PM

J.D. Martinez smashed his 28th home run of the season on Friday, but it wasn't enough for the Tigers to overcome the Orioles.

His two-run blast in the fourth inning gave the Tigers an early 4-0 lead, but like so many times this season the bullpen was unable to protect an early advantage. He also drew a walk in the contest, finishing the night 1-for-4. He is now hitting .287/.347/.556 with 28 home runs and 68 RBI.
Jul 31 - 10:41 PM

Buck Farmer struggled in a no-decision against the Orioles on Friday, allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits in his 4 1/3 innings of work.

Farmer walked one and struck out one on the night. The big blow against him came before he was chased in the fifth inning when Adam Jones belted a three-run homer. The Tigers continue to search for answers at the back end of their rotation, but it doesn't look like the 24-year-old right-hander is ready to carry that load just yet.
Jul 31 - 10:39 PM

Domonic Brown homered for the second consecutive game as the Phillies topped the Braves 9-3 on Friday.

Brown belted his first long ball of the season on Thursday and felt so good that he decided to repeat the effort on Friday night. It's the first time that he has homered in consecutive contests since early June 2013 when he clobbered 11 in a span of 15 ballgames. He finished the night 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI and also swiped his third base of the season.
Jul 31 - 10:35 PM

Jeff Locke yielded three runs over five innings in Friday's 5-4 win over the Reds.

All three runs scored in the second inning, including a two-run homer from Ivan De Jesus Jr. All told, Locke allowed five hits and three while while striking out five batters. He improve to 6-6 with the win and now owns a 4.21 ERA and 88/44 K/BB ratio over 113 1/3 innings this season. His spot in the rotation should be safe at least until A.J. Burnett comes off the disabled list, so he lines up for a start against the Cubs next week.
Jul 31 - 10:34 PM

Michael Lorenzen was charged with five runs in 5 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Pirates.

Lorenzen was pulled with the bases loaded in the sixth and two of the baserunners eventually came around to score. He struck out six and walked three and has now lost each of his last four decisions. With a mediocre 4.80 ERA and 59/47 K/BB ratio over 84 1/3 innings this season, his spot in the starting rotation could be vulnerable.
