BALTIMORE (AP) — Matt Wieters hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 10th inning and the Baltimore Orioles withstood four solo homers by the Tampa Bay Rays in a 10-6 victory Thursday night.

Nolan Reimold and Steve Pearce also homered for the Orioles, who took two of three from their AL East rivals. It was Baltimore’s 17th straight extra-inning victory, including 16 last season.

After Nick Markakis led off the 10th with a single against Jamey Wright (0-1), Brandon Gomes came in to face Manny Machado, who reached on a bunt single that hugged the first base line. Adam Jones followed with a long single to the warning track that eluded right fielder Ben Zobrist, but Markakis held up at second and could only make it to third.
