BALTIMORE (AP) — Wei-Yin Chen pitched eight innings of four-hit ball, Matt Wieters hit a three-run homer and the Baltimore Orioles beat the skidding Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 Monday night.
Chen (3-4) struck out nine and walked one to help the Orioles win for the ninth time in 11 games. The eight innings tied a career high and was the longest stint by an Orioles starter this month.
Zach Britton got the final three outs to seal the last-place Phillies’ seventh straight defeat. Philadelphia has been blanked in three of its last four games.
The Phillies have lost 11 in a row on the road and are a major-league worst 7-27 in away games. The loss — their 17th in the last 20 games overall —dropped them a season-high 21 games under .500 (22-43).
Aaron Harang (4-8) matched zeroes with Chen until the fifth inning, when Travis Snider hit a two-out double off the glove of left fielder Cody Asche.
