BALTIMORE — Miguel Gonzalez pitched a four-hitter for his first career complete game, and the Baltimore Orioles hit three home runs off Dylan Axelrod in a 6-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night.

Gonzalez (8-7) had a season-high eight strikeouts, walked one and allowed only one hit through the first seven innings — a line drive single to Ryan Ludwick in the fifth.

The Reds added two singles in the eighth before leaving the bases loaded, and Jay Bruce singled with two outs in the ninth.

David Lough and Jonathan Schoop hit solo shots before Chris Davis connected with a man on in the fourth to make it 4-0. That was more than enough offense for Gonzalez, who has given up four runs over his last 27 1-3 innings.
