Rajai Davis homered, and Detroit overcame a rare shaky performance by Justin Verlander to complete a three-game sweep of the Baltimore Orioles with a 7-5 victory Wednesday.

The Tigers have won 12 of their last 15 games, including eight in a row on the road. Baltimore has lost four straight.

Verlander (5-2) allowed a season-high five runs on six hits with four strikeouts and three walks in six innings. He still improved to 7-0 in eight outings at Camden Yards. But it was the first time in 15 games a Detroit starter allowed more than three runs.

Davis hit his third home run and had two RBIs for the Tigers.

Baltimore's Nelson Cruz had two hits, including his 11th home run. Adam Jones went 3 for 5 with an RBI and extended his hitting streak to nine games.
