ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Matt Wieters homered, Wei-Yin Chen pitched into the seventh inning and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Texas Rangers 3-1 on Friday night. Nick Markakis had an RBI double and a home run-robbing catch for the Orioles in manager Buck Showalter's 250th victory with the team since being hired in July 2010. Showalter joined Joe Torre, Gene Mauch and Dick Williams as the only major league managers to win 250 games with at least four different teams. Showalter also won at least 250 games with the New York Yankees (1992-95), Arizona (1998-2000) and Texas (2003-06), where he was replaced by current Rangers manager Ron Washington. Left-hander Chen (5-3) allowed only one run and eight hits and two walks over 6 1-3 innings. Jim Johnson worked the ninth for his majors-best 34th save even after allowing a hit and hitting a batter. Derek Holland (8-5) allowed three runs and six hits in an eight-inning span when he threw 119 pitches. The left-hander struck out six and walked three. Baltimore never trailed after Wieters' 13th homer, a solo shot in the second. After No. 9 hitter Brian Roberts walked to lead off the third, he scored on Nate McLouth's double for a 2-0 lead. The run-saving grab by right fielder Markakis came when Adrian Beltre led off the Texas fourth. Markakis leaped and stuck his glove above the 8-foot wall to make the catch. Jeff Baker and Craig Gentry both returned to the Texas lineup after being activated from the disabled list, and produced the Rangers run. Baker had two hits and was involved in usual plays while running the bases after both. After his single in the fourth, Mitch Moreland drew a walk. Baker was jogging toward second base when he saw Chen with his head down kicking dirt on the front of the mound and All-Star third baseman Manny Machado way off his base. So Baker took off for the third, and was credited with a stolen base before scoring on Gentry's sacrifice fly. Baker was at first after a leadoff single in the sixth when Gentry doubled into the right-center field gap. Baker was already rounding third base hard with coach Gary Pettis waving him home before the coach suddenly throwing up a stop sign. Baker tried to scamper back but was thrown out on an 8-6-5 play. Orioles' All-Star slugger Chris Davis, the major league leader with 37 home runs, was 0 for 4 with three strikeouts. The Texas native traded to Baltimore from the Rangers nearly two years ago did have a nice play at first base when he reached into the seats to catch Beltre's foul pop leading off the eighth. Machado reached on a two-out infield single in the fifth and scored on the double by Markakis. NOTES: Texas has lost five of its past six games. ... It was the third straight year Holland started the Rangers' first game after the All-Star break. He pitched 16 2-3 scoreless innings winning the previous two. ... In three regular-season games as an opponent at Rangers Ballpark, Davis is 1 for 12 with seven strikeouts.
