Ortiz’s second homer was heading down the right-field line before it curled around the pole just 302 feet from home plate. Ortiz remained in the batter’s box until first-base umpire Jerry Meals signaled a home run.

Rangers manager Ron Washington came out after Ortiz crossed the plate to ask for a review. After 44.1 seconds, the play was upheld.

Andrew Miller (1-0) won despite allowing the go-ahead run in the top of the eighth, and Koji Uehara pitched the ninth for his second save. Alexi Ogando (0-1) was the loser.

ORIOLES 5, YANKEES 4

NEW YORK • Nick Markakis had an RBI single in the ninth inning against fill-in closer Shawn Kelley, and Baltimore rallied for a victory in Masahiro Tanaka’s first Yankee Stadium start.

Jonathan Schoop hit a three-run homer off Tanaka in the second inning of his first start at Yankee Stadium but Carlos Beltran and Kelly Johnson connected against Miguel Gonzalez in the bottom of the inning.

The Orioles, who managed seven hits while striking out 10 times against Tananka in seven innings, lined four straight singles to center field off Kelley (0-1).

Tommy Hunter gave up a run before getting Yangervis Solarte to ground into a double play for his third save. Brian Matusz got two outs (1-0) for the win.

BLUE JAYS 7, ASTROS 3

TORONTO • Brett Lawrie hit a two-run homer and Brandon Morrow won for the first time in almost 11 months.

Alex Presley hit a two-run homer for the Astros, who have lost six of seven following a 2-0 start.

Morrow (1-1), limited to 10 starts last season with a nerve injury in his forearm, won for the first time since May 23, 2013, when he beat Baltimore. He allowed three runs and five hits in six innings and struck out nine.

Steve Delabar got one out in the ninth but had to leave after he was hit on the lower right leg by Jose Altuve’s liner. Esmil Rogers finished.

Jose Bautista hit an RBI double in the first and Adam Lind added an RBI single as the Blue Jays jumped out to a quick lead against Lucas Harrell (0-2).
