PITTSBURGH (AP) -- The Orioles' Blake Davis made an error in his major league debut and Pittsburgh scored the tying and go-ahead runs in the Pirates' 5-4 victory over Baltimore on Wednesday.
Josh Harrison's ground ball to second with two outs and runners on second and third in the fifth went through Davis' legs, allowing Brandon Wood and Michael McKenry to score.
Andrew McCutchen had two hits, a run and an RBI for Pittsburgh (37-37), which took the final two games of the series following a four-game losing streak and to reach .500.
Kevin Correia tied for the major league lead in victories (9-6), and Joel Hanrahan became just the third Pirates pitcher to record 20 saves before the All-star break.
Nick Markakis went 3 for 5 with an RBI, and J.J. Hardy had two hits, including a two-run double, for Baltimore. The Orioles have lost eight of 11.
