Wei-Yin Chen pitched six innings of three-hit ball, Chris Davis and Manny Machado homered and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-1 Saturday night to complete a doubleheader sweep. The Orioles won the opener 7-5, rallying from a four-run deficit behind Nolan Reimold, who homered and hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the eighth inning. Los Angeles has lost six straight, its longest skid since a seven-game slide last June. The Dodgers will complete their first series in Baltimore since 2002 on Sunday, looking to avert a sweep. Chen (1-2) allowed one run, walked four and struck out two to end a six-game losing streak dating back to Aug. 19, 2012.
