Chen's strong start lifts Orioles over A's
By Associated Press

Wei-Yin Chen pitched eight strong innings, giving up only two hits to help the Baltimore Orioles beat the Oakland Athletics 3-0 on Friday night.

Jim Johnson completed the three-hitter by getting the final three outs for his ninth save. The Orioles have won seven of their last nine games while the A's have dropped seven of eight.

The Orioles broke a scoreless tie in the seventh inning as J.J. Hardy lead off against Tommy Milone (3-2) with a single that A's right-fielder Josh Reddick bobbled for an error allowing Hardy to go to second. After an out, Steve Pearce drove him in with a sharply hit ball past diving A's shortstop Adam Rosales.

Baltimore added two runs in the ninth against Oakland reliever Ryan Cook on an error and sacrifice fly.
