BALTIMORE — Matt Wieters homered leading off the 11th inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Atlanta Braves 2-1 Monday night for their third straight victory.
Wieters hit a 1-0 pitch from Luis Avilan (2-4) over the center-field wall. It was Wieters' fourth home run, the first since June 25, and his teammates celebrated by dousing him with a bucket of water at the plate.
Brad Brach (4-2) worked the 11th for the Orioles, who hadn't won three in a row since late June.
Rookie Adonis Garcia homered for the Braves, who have dropped 11 of 15.
Garcia connected off All-Star reliever Zach Britton in the ninth inning to break up a scoreless duel, but Baltimore rallied in the bottom half against former Oriole Jim Johnson.
