Parmelee, Machado each hit 2 of Orioles' club-record 8 HRs in 19-3 rout of Phillies


BALTIMORE — The Baltimore Orioles made history at the expense of the woeful Philadelphia Phillies, whose latest loss matched a club record for futility that had stood for 132 years.

and newcomer each hit two of an Orioles-record eight home runs, and Baltimore breezed past the Phillies 19-3 on Tuesday night for its eighth win in nine games.

"It's fun to watch, fun to be a part of," winning pitcher said.

The defeat sealed the Phillies' first winless road trip of at least eight games since an 0-9 run in August 1883, their inaugural season. Philadelphia hosts the Orioles on Wednesday after going 0-8 in Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

"Worst road trip I've ever been on as far as just the way we lost games," said right fielder , who pitched the last two innings. "We were in a bunch of games and just lost them at the end, or one hit here or one pitch there."

Not this one.

The eight home runs were the most by the Orioles since their move from St. Louis in 1954. They hit seven in a game three times previously, the last on Sept. 26, 2012, against Toronto.

"I kind of got to experience everything that a pitcher probably experiences over a year in two innings," Francoeur said.

Machado set the tone by hitting starter ' second pitch into the seats in left field, sparking a six-run first inning that doomed the Phillies to their 12th consecutive road defeat.

"That's a pretty good way to start, right?" Parmelee said. "But you know, the team played phenomenal tonight."

Tillman (5-7) allowed three runs and four hits in six innings to win his third straight start.

Williams (3-7) left with a hamstring injury after getting only two outs. He was replaced by , who yielded five home runs in 3 1-3 innings: second-inning solo shots by Machado, and Parmelee; a three-run drive by in the third; and a leadoff shot by in the fourth.

Parmelee added a leadoff homer off in the sixth. De Fratus' next pitch soared inside to , resulting in the right-hander's ejection by home plate umpire Lance Barksdale.

"I know what it looked like. So once he pointed at me, you just walk off the mound," De Fratus said.
