Chris Tillman took a two-hitter into the seventh inning, Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 22nd home run and the Baltimore Orioles blanked the Boston Red Sox 2-0 Friday night in a duel between the top two teams in the AL East.

Manny Machado had three hits for the Orioles, who have won five of six -- including the first two in this four-game series. Baltimore moved within 1 1/2 games of the division-leading Red Sox, the closest the Orioles have been to first place since May 13.

Tillman (7-2) allowed three hits and four walks in six-plus innings. The right-hander permitted only one runner to get past second base in winning his third straight start.
