BALTIMORE (AP) Chris Tillman and a trio of relievers provided the Baltimore Orioles something that' s been lacking for much of this season: a well-pitched game.

Pedro Severino added a two-run drive in the eighth.

BOX SCORE: ORIOLES 7, DODGERS 3

Having clinched the NL West title on Tuesday night before indulging in an alcohol-themed celebration, the Dodgers did not appear to play with their usual intensity.

Manager Dave Roberts rested starters Joc Pederson and Justin Turner, starting pitcher Ross Stripling toiled for only three innings before getting the rest of the night off and a first-inning double by David Freese was Los Angeles' only hit off John Means through the fifth.

Dodgers continue their dominance by clinching seventh straight NL West title Dodgers continue their dominance by clinching seventh straight NL West title . That’s the longest division championship streak in MLB since the Atlanta Braves won 14 NL East titles in a row from 1991 through 2005. BOX SCORE: DODGERS 7, ORIOLES 3 Although it came against a basement-dwelling team, the continued dominance shown in Tuesday’s clinching victory was fitting of the dominance Los Angeles has shown throughout the entire season, and throughout most of the last decade. Corey Seager led the way with a pair of home runs, while rookie infielder Gavin Lux launched his first career bomb.

When Orioles manager Buck Showalter emerged from the dugout to pull Gallardo in the fourth, many of the hometown fans cheered. Rays: Chris Archer (8-18, 4.05 ERA) starts Friday night, seeking to pad his AL-leading strikeout total of 217. He also hopes to avoid setting the franchise record for losses in

BALTIMORE (AP) — Jonathan Schoop hit a game-winning solo homer with two outs in the ninth inning as the Baltimore Orioles rallied past the Washington The right-hander remained unbeaten in seven starts since May 31. Limited to an infield single over the first four innings, the Nationals used a five-hit

Roberts used seven pitchers. The Dodgers finished with six hits, the most notable a two-run drive by A.J. Pollock that made it 2-1 in the sixth.

In the bottom half, Joe Kelly walked the leadoff batter, threw a wild pitch and gave up a two-out RBI single to Dwight Smith Jr.

The Baltimore seventh began with a walk, and Austin Hays' third hit of the game preceded Villar's career-high 21st home run.

The victory was Baltimore's 47th of the season, matching its total from last year. The Orioles remain two defeats away from their second straight 100-loss season.

Shawn Armstrong (1-1) followed Means with 1 2/3 innings of one-hit relief to earn his second career victory in 100 appearances.

SHOUT OUT

Roberts is in the midst of his fourth straight 90-win season with Los Angeles. Baltimore manager Brandon Hyde is striving to win 50 games in his first year with the rebuilding Orioles.

Hyde, who won a World Series ring as a coach with the Chicago Cubs, can appreciate what it takes to be a constant winner.

"I have a lot of respect for the Dodgers. I have a lot of respect for Dave Roberts," Hyde said. "That's so hard to do, seven years in a row winning the division. He's done some great things there."

TRAINER'S ROOM

Dodgers: Turner (ankle) remained out of the lineup. Roberts said X-rays were inconclusive and that Turner would undergo an MRI exam. "Right now, with where we're at, to push it doesn't make a whole lot of sense," Roberts said. ... INF Max Muncy (fractured wrist) is expected to rejoin the team Friday in New York. Muncy, who has 33 HRs and 87 RBIs, has been hitting live pitching in Arizona this week.

Orioles: Hyde is adamant about protecting the right arm of 2013 first-round pick Hunter Harvey (1-0, 1.69 ERA over 5 1/3 innings). "He hasn't thrown this much since 2014, so he's got some soreness," Hyde said. "He's never pitched into September, so we're just giving him a little bit more time off."

UP NEXT

Dodgers: LHP Rich Hill (4-1, 2.55 ERA), who is 2-0 with an 0.87 ERA in 12 lifetime appearances against Baltimore, returns from a forearm strain Thursday night to make his first appearance since June 19 in the finale of the three-game series.
