Beltre homers twice to boost Texas

(Continued)

BALTIMORE —

Beltre said, “We all contribute some way or another. I think we are good as a group. There’s not one guy who can say he’s the main guy. I think everybody’s contributing right now. There’s a couple games that I’m contributing a lot better than I did before.”

Manny Machado homered for the Orioles, who have lost six of eight. Baltimore is 3-12 in its last 15 regular-season games against Texas.

After going 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position in a loss to Texas on Monday, the Orioles were 2 for 7 in that situation on Tuesday. Their biggest problem on this night was containing Beltre.

“You know he’s a good hitter, and then when you make bad pitches on top of that he’s not going to miss them,” manager Buck Showalter said.

Britton gave up five runs and eight hits in five innings. After the game, he was optioned along with reliever Kevin Gausman to Triple-A Norfolk. The corresponding moves will be announced Wednesday, with one of them being the activation of left-hander Wei-Yin Chen from the disabled list.

Martin Perez (3-1) allowed four runs, two earned, and six hits in six-plus innings for the Rangers. The left-hander is 3-0 with a 1.44 ERA in four starts since being recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on June 22.

“I can’t finish the seventh inning but I’m happy what I’m doing tonight,” Perez said.

Perez, who came in with a run of 17 straight scoreless innings, added to the total with a perfect first. But the streak ended in the second when the Orioles used singles by Matt Wieters, Nate McLouth and Brian Roberts to pull even at 1.

Machado hit a solo drive in the third, his seventh of the season and only the second since May 5.
