BALTIMORE (AP) — Kelvin Gutierrez homered to cap a three-run seventh inning and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Texas Rangers 3-2 on Saturday night.

Jose Trevino and Nathaniel Lowe homered for the Rangers, who have lost nine of 11 and fell to 56-99 on the season. Texas is headed toward its first 100-loss season since 1973.

“I do like to win 7-1 once in a while,” Baltimore manager Brandon Hyde said. “Those are always fun as well. Maybe score some runs and not give up many. That has not been a key component to our season this year. We play a lot of tight games. I’m not going to complain about a win ever.”

The game was scoreless in the seventh when the 105-loss Orioles broke through against Texas starter Jordan Lyles (9-13). Trey Mancini walked and scored on Pat Valaika’s double, and Gutierrez followed with his second homer of the season, but his first for the Orioles.

“It felt great,” said Gutierrez, who was acquired from Kansas City on July 3. “I was anxious to hit one with the Orioles. Hopefully, let’s get some more.”

Lyles, who is pitching for his sixth team since debuting in 2011, allowed three runs and seven hits with four strikeouts and one walk over 6 2/3 innings.

“Those last two or three at-bats, I wish we could have back,” Lyles said. “The stuff was there. Obviously, the final line stings a little bit. It’s not what you want, especially in a 0-0 ballgame. You have to keep the door closed.”
