Red Sox starter David Price gets the final out of the eighth, but isn’t happy after giving up a home run in the inning.

BOSTON — Manny Machado hit a two-run home run, Chris Tillman struck out seven and the Orioles snapped a three-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Red Sox on Tuesday night, taking over first in the AL East.

Jonathan Schoop added a solo homer in the eighth for Baltimore.

The teams entered the three-game series tied atop the East. Baltimore is 5-3 against Boston this season.

Tillman went seven innings to get the victory. He kept the Red Sox off balance with an assortment of fastballs, sliders and curves. His lone mistake was a home run in the seventh to Jackie Bradley Jr. That came on his 111th pitch — his season high had been 110 — and he finished with 120.

Baltimore's bullpen gave one run back in the eighth, on an RBI single by Xander Bogaerts. but Zach Britton earned his 20th save in 20 tries.

David Price took the loss, despite finishing with 11 strikeouts in eight innings and retiring 19 straight at one point. This was the third time this season Price has allowed two home runs.

Baltimore jumped on Price in its first at-bat. After Joey Rickard's single, Machado drove a first-pitch fastball over the fence in right to make it 2-0.

Price settled after that, retiring 19 straight with nine strikeouts until Mark Trumbo's single in the seventh.

"As the game goes on, I definitely want to get better and for the most part I did that, but one pitch in this game can lose it for you," Price said.

    Keep him.

    Jonathan Drouin is live bait. The Lightning is ready to run the hook through him and cast him out there again. Drouin has enough talent for the Lightning to meet some defensive needs in a deal.

    Keep him.
