BALTIMORE (AP) — Trey Mancini hit the longest home run by an Orioles player this season, Rougned Odor had a shot that landed on Eutaw Street and Baltimore beat the Cleveland Guardians 5-4 on Saturday.

Austin Hays also homered for the Orioles.

José Ramírez and Andrés Giménez hit home runs for Cleveland.

Reliever Félix Bautista (2-1) picked up the win and Jorge Lopez got the last four outs for his seventh save. The Guardians loaded the bases in the eighth, but Lopez retired Josh Naylor on a flyball to end the threat.

Cleveland starter Triston McKenzie allowed five runs and on just three hits with four strikeouts and three walks over seven innings. McKenzie has allowed eight homers over his past four starts.

Ramírez gave the Guardians a 1-0 lead in the first with a homer off Tyler Wells. It was his 14th homer of the season and league-leading 53rd RBI.

Mancini tied the game in the bottom half with a homer that traveled 438 feet.

Giménez gave the Guardians a 2-1 lead with a towering shot that traveled 418 feet and was the first to land on Eutaw Street this season.

Hays, who had a season-high 13-game hitting streak end the previous night, gave the Orioles the 4-2 lead with a three-run drive in the third.

Odor provided a 5-2 lead with another deep home run in the fourth that also landed on Eutaw Street.

DISTANCE

It was just the third time in the history of Camden Yards that two homers landed on Eutaw Street in the same game and the first since 2012.

MOVES

TRAINER’S ROOM
