Orioles 6, Rangers 1

BALTIMORE — Wei-Yin Chen returned from the disabled list to pitch seven three-hit innings, and Nolan Reimold hit a three-run homer to lead the Orioles to a 6-1 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday night.

Manny Machado had three hits and an RBI for Baltimore, which won for the third time in nine games. The Orioles will seek a split of the four-game series tonight.

Chen had not pitched since May 12 because of a strained right oblique.

Major-league home run leader Chris Davis went 0-for-3 with a walk and is hitless in his past 17 at-bats for Baltimore. He hasn't gotten a hit since he was announced as the leading vote getter in All-Star fan balloting.

Reimold was a late replacement at DH for Chris Dickerson, who was scratched for a reason the Orioles did not disclose. Batting ninth, Reimold delivered his first home run since May 4 to put Baltimore up 6-0 in the fourth inning against Josh Lindblom, who struggled for 51/3 innings.

Reimold was on the disabled list from May 12 to July 1 and was playing in only his 37th game of the season.

Adrian Beltre extended his hitting streak to 12 games and drove in a run for the Rangers, whose four-game road winning streak ended. Texas had scored at least five runs in six consecutive games.
