MILWAUKEE -- J.J. Hardy scored on Nick Hundley's 10th-inning hit as the Baltimore Orioles rallied for a 7-6 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday afternoon at Miller Park.

Shortstop Hardy had a big day against his former team, racking up three hits, as did second baseman Jonathan Schoop, who also hit two home runs.

Baltimore's comeback came at the expense of a former Oriole, right-hander Francisco Rodriguez, who struggled with his control in the ninth and blew his second save opportunity of the season.

Back-to-back sixth inning home runs by left fielder Khris Davis and first baseman Lyle Overbay gave Milwaukee a 6-3 lead before Schoop took Kyle Lohse deep in the seventh for his fourth home run of the season.

Schoop would strike again in the ninth, slamming Rodriguez's first offering to left for his second home run of the day. Pinch hitter Delmon Young followed with a single to left and pinch runner David Lough tied the game, scoring on Markakis' double.

The Brewers put runners at the corners with one out in the 10th, but pinch runner Elian Herrera was doubled off third base when third baseman Mark Reynolds lined out to short.

Milwaukee right-hander Rob Wooten (1-2) got two quick outs on Baltimore but Hardy came through with a double that bounced out of Davis' glove, and scored when Hundley, the Orioles' catcher, singled.

The late defensive gaffe put a blemish on an otherwise strong offensive day for Davis, who went 4-for-4 with a double, a home run, a walk and two runs scored.

Shortstop Jean Segura had two hits for Milwaukee, which got 6 2/3 innings and five strikeouts from right-hander Kyle Lohse.

Orioles starter Chris Tillman went 5 2/3 innings and allowed six runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out seven.

Right-hander Darren O'Day earned his second victory of the season and left-hander Zach Britton stranded a pair in the bottom of the 10th for his third save.
