ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Chris Tillman pitched eight effective innings in his return from the All-Star game and the surging Baltimore Orioles beat the Texas Rangers 4-2 on Sunday night to sweep a three-game series between 2012 playoff teams.

Matt Wieters had two hits and scored twice to help the Orioles (56-43) move a season-high 13 games over .500 with their seventh victory in eight games.

Consistent starting pitching has been the key to this run. Tillman (12-3) gave up two runs and six hits while striking out seven, making Baltimore starters 7-1 in the last eight games.

The 25-year-old righty was added to the AL All-Star team as an injury replacement but did not pitch Tuesday night at Citi Field.
