BALTIMORE (AP) — Chris Davis hit a go-ahead sacrifice fly in the seventh, Jimmy Paredes homered and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Minnesota Twins 3-2 on Saturday night.

The Orioles have won five of their past six games and lead the Yankees by eight games in the AL East. The Twins have lost 10 of their past 14 games.

Paredes, who was called up from the minors Thursday, went 2 for 4 with his first homer and had two RBIs. Davis is batting just .188, but has five RBIs in his past two games.

Zach Britton pitched a perfect ninth for his 30th save — the 10th different Orioles to record that many saves.

Danny Santana had two hits for the Twins and has 40 for the month, most among all rookies. Minnesota went 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position.
