BALTIMORE (AP) -- Caleb Joseph homered and drove in three runs, Kevin Gausman allowed four hits over seven innings and the surging Baltimore Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers 6-2 on Saturday night.

Gerardo Parra went 1 for 3 and scored a run in his Baltimore debut. Obtained Friday in a trade with Milwaukee, the outfielder became the 1,000th player to appear in a game for the Orioles.

Manny Machado hit his 23rd home run for the Orioles, who have won seven of eight. Baltimore is three games over .500 for the first time since July 6 and in the thick of the AL wild-card hunt.

Gausman (2-2) gave up two runs, struck out six and walked none in earning his first win in 13 appearances since April 7. The right-hander retired the first 11 batters and was working on a run of 13 straight shutout innings before Nick Castellanos homered with a man on in the fifth.

That was the lone salvo from the Tigers, who traded away three of their best players before Friday's non-waiver trade deadline in the opening phase of a rebuilding effort.

Ian Kinsler had three hits, his 39th multihit game of the season. He's 10 for 14 in the four-game series that ends Sunday.

Anibal Sanchez (10-9) allowed six runs in 6 2/3 innings for Detroit. The right-hander has lost two straight since winning seven decisions in a row.

Baltimore jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first inning. After Machado hit a leadoff single, Parra received a standing ovation from many in the sellout crowd of 45,968 before his first at-bat. He responded with a double to extend his hitting streak to 15 games.

One out later, Chris Davis drove in a run with a groundout and Matt Wieters hit an RBI single.

Joseph singled in a second-inning run and made it 5-0 in the fourth with his eighth home run following an infield single by J.J. Hardy, who also has a 15-game hitting streak.


Tigers: RF J.D. Martinez left in the middle of the third inning after fouling a ball off his left knee in the top of the second. X-rays were negative. ... Manager Brad Ausmus said RHP Alfredo Simon (groin) will receive three extra days of rest before his next start. ... 1B Miguel Cabrera (calf strain) is "a little ahead of schedule" in his quest to return, Ausmus said, but there is no timetable for the start of his rehabilitation assignment.

Orioles: Chris Tillman (right ankle sprain) will likely miss his scheduled start Monday. ... RHP Mike Wright was placed on the 15-day DL with a left calf strain, an injury that occurred Friday night.


Tigers: Daniel Norris (1-1, 3.86 ERA) makes his Tigers debut Sunday after coming from Toronto in a trade Thursday for 2012 Cy Young winner David Price.

Orioles: Ubaldo Jimenez (8-6, 3.73) is 5-10 lifetime against Detroit, more losses than against any other team.
