SAN FRANCISCO - SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Mark Trumbo regained the major league lead with his 33rd home run and the Baltimore Orioles moved back into first place in the AL East with a 5-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Friday night.
Trumbo's two-run homer in the third inning off Giants starter Matt Cain traveled an estimated 441 feet, landing near the back of the stands in left field. Earlier Friday, Toronto's Edwin Encarnacion hit his 32nd home run to tie Trumbo for the MLB lead.
The Orioles' win, coupled with the Blue Jays' 5-3 home loss to Houston, moved Baltimore back into first place by a half-game over Toronto. The Giants retained their one-game lead in the NL West over the Los Angeles Dodgers, who lost 5-1 at home to Pittsburgh.
Chris Davis led off the fifth with his 24th homer of the season for the Orioles, who are 4-4 on a 10-game road trip that ends Sunday in San Francisco.
