LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jonathan Schoop doubled in the go-ahead runs with two outs in the 14th inning, lifting the Baltimore Orioles to a 6-4 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday in a game that included a stadium-record 36 strikeouts.
Schoop drove in Manny Machado and Chris Davis, who had consecutive singles, when center fielder Trayce Thompson tried to make a backhanded diving catch and the ball rolled well out of his reach.
Mychal Givens (6-1) got the win. Zach Britton got his 25th save in as many chances.
Mark Trumbo hit two leadoff home runs for the Orioles, who took two out of three to win the interleague series.
Chris Hatcher (5-4) got the loss.
The Dodgers had the potential tying runs on in the bottom of the 14th, when manager Dave Roberts was ejected by home plate umpire Pat Hoberg for arguing balls and strikes on Howie Kendrick.
With one out, Adrian Gonzalez doubled and Thompson walked. Kendrick grounded into a fielder’s choice and Thompson was out at second. Yasmani Grandal was intentionally walked to load the bases before Hatcher grounded out to the pitcher to end the nearly 5½-hour game.
Chase Utley had a career-high six hits for the Dodgers, who struck out 18 times. Thompson fanned four times as did newly minted rookie All-Star Corey Seager, whose double in the seventh extended his hitting streak to 19 games, longest in the National League this season.
Utley became the first Dodger with that many hits since Shawn Green in 2002.
The combined strikeouts bettered the old mark of 32 set by the Braves and Dodgers on Aug. 3, 1996.
The Dodgers ran out of position players in the 13th, sending pitcher Scott Kazmir to bat for reliever Louis Coleman and he grounded out.
The Dodgers tagged out the potential winning run at the plate in the 13th. Adam Jones singled to right and pinch-hitter Joey Rickard, who singled, took off for home but was out at the plate on Utley’s relay from Yasiel Puig.
The Orioles missed a scoring chance with two runners on in the 12th. With one out, Machado walked and Davis grounded out to third. Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner was playing on the right side of the infield and with no one covering third on the defensive shift, Machado advanced two bases. After an intentional walk to Trumbo, Schoop grounded out to shortstop.
The Dodgers missed a slew of opportunities. They failed to cash in with the bases loaded in the seventh and eighth innings, and Gonzalez grounded into an inning-ending double play in the 11th.
Gonzalez singled in the tying and go-ahead runs in the fifth, giving the Dodgers a 4-3 lead.
Trumbo’s first homer came on an 0-2 pitch from starter Bud Norris in the fourth, putting the Orioles back in front 3-2.
Baltimore tied the game 2-all on Machado’s double-play groundout in the third. Ryan Flaherty’s RBI double in the second left the Orioles training 2-1.
Norris allowed three runs and six hits in five innings of his second start since being acquired from Atlanta last week. The right-hander struck out five and walked two.
Orioles starter Kevin Gausman gave up four runs and eight hits in five innings, struck out six and walked one.
Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw has been cleared to play catch as he rehabilitates from mild disk herniation. Roberts says Kershaw has been exercising and his latest clearance is “exciting and encouraging.” But Roberts says the team will keep a close eye on Kershaw because “he’ll want to push it as much as he possibly can.” He’s not expected to need any minor league rehab starts.
Kershaw went on the DL last Friday, ensuring that he will miss next week’s All-Star Game in San Diego. The left-hander is 11-2 with a major league-leading 1.79 ERA in 16 starts.
TURNING THE CORNER
Orioles manager Buck Showalter says that based on health and performance Dylan Bundy could get a shot at the starting rotation. The 23-year-old right-hander made a strong case for it, striking out seven over 2 1/3 innings of relief Wednesday. He hasn’t allowed an earned run over 14 1/3 innings in his last six appearances, lowering his ERA from 4.94 to 3.08.
The Dodgers threatened in the seventh when they loaded the bases against Bundy, who struck out Thompson and Kendrick on a called third strike to end the inning.
The Dodgers’ Adam Liberatore has tossed 23 consecutive scoreless innings of relief since May 20, tying John Candelaria’s club record from 1991.
Dodgers: OF Andre Ethier, who broke his foot in spring training, is aiming to return in early August. Roberts says he’s doing light jogging and the next step will be taking live batting practice. Ethier will do a 10-day minor league rehab stint. … LHP Brett Anderson, on the DL with a bulging disk in his back, could be back by mid-August. He threw off a mound for the first time Tuesday.
Orioles: After a day off Thursday, the O’s open a three-game series at home against the Los Angeles Angels. Baltimore has yet to name a starter for Friday.
Dodgers: RHP Hyun-Jin Ryu makes his season debut and his first start since the 2014 playoffs. He had left shoulder surgery in May 2015 after going 14-7 with a 3.38 ERA in 2014.
