BALTIMORE (AP) - Chris Davis hit two home runs, the second a tiebreaking shot with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning off switch-pitcher Pat Venditte, to give the Baltimore Orioles a 4-3 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night.

Davis connected on a 2-2 offering from Venditte (0-1), the first ambidextrous pitcher in the majors since 1995. Venditte was recalled from Triple-A Nashville before the game for his second stint with Oakland this season.

It was the second straight night in which the Orioles beat the A's with a home run in their final at-bat. Manny Machado hit the game-winner in the 13th inning less than 24 hours earlier.
