Baltimore Orioles v Washington Nationals
More from 106.7 the Fan

BALTIMORE — Chris Davis went 4 for 4 with two home runs, and the Baltimore Orioles overcame three homers by Ryan Zimmerman to beat the Washington Nationals 9-6 on Wednesday night.

In a wild game before 39,129 fans, each team slugged four home runs and the Orioles rallied from a four-run deficit against one of the best pitchers in the game.

Zimmerman hit solo homers in the first and fourth innings before adding a two-run drive in the fifth, all off Chris Tillman. With a chance to tie the major-league record of four homers in a game, Zimmerman came to the plate in the seventh against Steve Johnson and looked at a third strike.

It was the first three-homer game of Zimmerman’s career.

Davis hit a solo drive in the fourth and capped a six-run seventh with his major-league leading 19th homer, a two-run shot off Tyler Clippard.
