Machado home run lifts first-place Baltimore in 12th

Manny Machado homered off Cory Rasmus leading off the 12th inning to give the Baltimore Orioles a 7-6 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night.

Machado hit a 1-2 breaking ball from Rasmus (2-1) into the seats in left field to end the back-and-forth duel between AL contenders.

Ryan Webb (3-1) worked out of a two-on, two-out jam in the top of the 12th for the Orioles, who improved to 12-3 in extra innings.

Adam Jones and Nick Markakis homered for Baltimore, playing its first home game since the All-Star break.

Josh Hamilton homered and had three RBIs for the Angels, who have dropped eight of their last 11 against the Orioles.

A potential pitching duel between Jered Weaver and Chris Tillman turned into a slugfest, as both former All-Stars left after the fifth inning with Baltimore leading 6-5.

Weaver gave up a season-high six earned runs and walked four. Tillman yielded five runs, three earned, and six hits — including three doubles and a home run.
