ATLANTA (AP) -- Jason Hammel pitched a one-hitter for his first career shutout, allowing only Jason Heyward's two-out single in the seventh inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Atlanta Braves 5-0 on Saturday night.
There have already been five no-hitters in the majors this season, including three this month, and Hammel made a strong bid to add to the list.
Hammel struck out eight and walked two, throwing 65 of 102 pitches for strikes.
The Orioles have won six of seven. The Braves have lost five of six.
Brandon Beachy (5-5) left the game with right elbow soreness in the fourth inning. The major leagues' ERA leader allowed no hits and one run, struck out five and walked one.
