A's Beat Orioles 3-2 To Drop Baltimore Into First-Place Tie

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Kendall Graveman pitched seven strong innings, Billy Butler hit a tiebreaking single in the sixth and the Oakland Athletics beat Baltimore 3-2 on Monday night despite another home run from Orioles slugger Manny Machado.

Stephen Vogt homered, scored twice and had two RBIs for the A's while Butler added two hits.

Machado, who hit home runs in his first three at-bats Sunday, belted his 26th home run of the season off A's reliever Ryan Dull with two outs in the eighth.

It wasn't enough to prevent the Orioles from losing and falling into a first-place tie with Toronto in the AL East. The Blue Jays beat Tampa Bay 7-5 earlier Monday.

Vogt homered leading off the fourth against Baltimore starter Kevin Gausman (3-9), walked and scored the go-ahead run in the sixth and added an RBI single in the seventh.

Adam Jones had three hits for the Orioles.
