Miguel Gonzalez admits he can’t get his mind off fatherhood. His wife is due to deliver a baby daughter this week, and Gonzalez is eager for the happy event.

In what’s most likely his last start before fatherhood, Gonzalez worked into the seventh inning as the Orioles beat Jon Lester, who used to torment them.

The Orioles’ 6-3 win over the Boston Red Sox before 41,311 at Oriole Park on Sunday enabled them to take the series three games to one.

They’re within 1 ½ games of the Red Sox for first place in the AL East, and at 40-30, are at a season-high 10 games over .500 for the second time this season.

Lester had beaten the Orioles 14 straight times, and they’ve now beaten him two straight.

In the third, the Orioles scored three runs off Lester (6-4). Nick Markakis led off with a single, the first of his four hits. He moved to second on Manny Machado’s deep fly to left. With two outs, Adam Jones drove in Markakis with a double.

Chris Davis drove a home run to right field, his major league leading 23rd of the season, and the 100th of his career. It was his first hit after 14 hitless at-bats against Lester, and gave the Orioles a 3-0 lead.

Machado doubled down the left field line in the first, giving him 32 doubles, best in baseball, and a 14-game hitting streak, the longest by an Oriole this season.

In the fifth, Markakis doubled and scored on Machado’s RBI single. Machado scored on Davis’ two-out single.
