After leading the majors with 53 homers and 138 RBIs last year, Chris Davis has struggled to follow up his huge season at the plate. Davis hit a leadoff homer in the 10th inning, Nelson Cruz also went deep and the Baltimore Orioles overcame a record-tying start by Felix Hernandez in a 2-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners. It was his 13th consecutive start with at least seven innings and no more than two runs allowed, matching Tom Seaver’s major league mark set for the New York Mets in 1971. Everyone in Seattle knows that,” Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

Michael Morse rewarded his manager for giving him a rare day off. Morse homered and drove in three runs and Pablo Sandoval homered and scored twice to propel the San Francisco Giants to a 6-5 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series. ”It looked like the day off served him well,” said manager Bruce Bochy, who sat Morse for the first time this season Wednesday against the Chicago Cubs. ”A home run and that big hit off of one of the more dominant closers in the game with the power arm that he has.” The Giants, at the start of a seven-game trip to St. Louis and Cincinnati, have won seven of eight.

It was news to Hiroki Kuroda that it had been 10 months since he last won on the road. ”I wasn’t really thinking about that,” the right-hander said through an interpreter after the New York Yankees gave him a big early lead in a 7-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night. ”In fact, I didn’t know until you told me.” Kuroda snapped an 11-start road winless streak and Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and three RBIs his first three at-bats against Shelby Miller. We put a lot of good swings on balls.” John Ryan Murphy added two RBIs for the Yankees, who took two of three without an appearance from Mark Teixeira, nursing a sore wrist, and wrapped up a 5-4 trip.
