Chris Davis had two hits and collected his 118th RBI, and the Baltimore Orioles hit three home runs in a 10-3 rout of the Oakland Athletics on Sunday.

J.J. Hardy, Nick Markakis and Nate McLouth connected for the Orioles, who took two of three from Oakland to move within two games of the Athletics in the race for the second AL wild-card slot.

Oakland had gone 105 straight games since April 25 without allowing 10 runs. Rookie Sonny Gray (1-2) absorbed the brunt of the damage, yielding six runs and eight hits in 3 1-3 innings.

Scott Feldman (4-3) gave up one run in five innings for the Orioles.
