      Chris Davis' 2 HRs help Orioles blast Tigers 13-3


      Chris Davis cleared the fences twice, giving him a major-league leading 26 homers, to help the Baltimore Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers 13-3 Wednesday.


      Davis hit a two-run homer and Taylor Teagarden followed with a three-run home run in Baltimore's six-run fourth. Against embattled reliever Jose Valverde, Davis hit another two-run shot for his second multihomer game of the season and the fifth of his career.


      The Orioles improved to a season-high 11 games over .500 after beating the AL Central-leading Tigers twice in the three-game series.


      Chris Tillman (8-2) gave up three runs and seven hits over five-plus innings. He became the third pitcher in franchise history to win his first six decisions on the road, joining Jeff Ballard (1989) and Hoyt Wilhelm (1959).
