SAN DIEGO (AP) — Mark Trumbo hit his major league-leading 23rd homer and drove in four runs for the AL East-leading Baltimore Orioles, who beat the San Diego Padres 12-6 Wednesday for their seventh straight win.

Baltimore tied the 1996 Oakland A's for the most homers in June, 55. Overall, the Orioles lead the majors with 124.

The Orioles hit four home runs in sweeping the two-game series, including three in Tuesday night's 11-7 win.

Trumbo hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning and a two-run double in the ninth. Manny Machado had two hits and three RBIs, and pitcher Yovani Gallardo singled twice and scored a run.

After San Diego lefty Christian Friedrich (4-3) retired his first nine batters, he walked Adam Jones and allowed Jonathan Schoop's RBI double. Manny Machado hit an RBI single and, with one out, Trumbo homered into the second deck in left field to make it 4-0.

The Orioles scored two runs in the fifth on a throwing error by Friedrich with two outs and the bases loaded. Friedrich fielded Chris Davis' nubber down the line and made an errant throw to Wil Myers at first. Padres manager Andy Green was ejected for arguing with umpire Bill Miller, apparently about whether Davis ran outside the lane.

The only costly mistake by Gallardo (3-1) was allowing Brett Wallace's three-run homer with two outs in the sixth. Gallardo was outhitting the Padres 2-1 after getting singles in the fifth and sixth. He opened the Padres sixth by allowing a single by Melvin Upton Jr. and walking Myers. Gallardo struck out Matt Kemp and Yangervis Solarte before allowing Wallace's homer to straightaway center, his fifth.

Gallardo didn't allow a hit until rookie Alex Dickerson's single with one out in the fifth. He gave up three hits and three runs in six innings, struck out six and walked three.

Friedrich allowed six runs, four earned, and five hits in five innings. He struck out seven and walked two.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Padres: RHP Andrew Cashner (strained neck) is expected to come off the 15-day disabled list Sunday to start against the New York Yankees.

UP NEXT

Orioles: RHP Chris Tillman (10-1, 3.52 ERA) starts the opener of a four-game series at Seattle on Thursday night. The Mariners are scheduled to start RHP Taijuan Walker (3-6, 3.45).

Padres: After a day off, the Padres welcome the New York Yankees to Petco Park, with San Diego RHP Colin Rea (4-3, 5.05 ERA) scheduled to face RHP Nathan Eovaldi (6-5, 5.19).
