BALTIMORE – Chris Tillman won his fifth straight start with another solid performance against his former team and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Seattle Mariners 5-2 on Wednesday night.

Mark Trumbo and Matt Wieters hit back-to-back homers for the Orioles, whose 17-7 record at Camden Yards is the best home mark in the major leagues. Wieters also had two doubles for his first three-hit game this season.

Tillman was drafted by Seattle in 2006 and traded to Baltimore two years later with Adam Jones for Erik Bedard. Since then, he has gone 7-0 in nine career starts against Seattle.

Tillman (6-1) allowed two runs on four hits with six strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings. Closer Zach Britton relieved Brad Brach and worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth. Britton got his 11th save by recording five outs.

Taijuan Walker (2-3) allowed four runs on five hits over five innings.
