Orioles use 2 grand slams to rally past Royals 14-8
BALTIMORE (AP) - Nolan Reimold and Steve Clevenger both hit grand slams during a 10-run eighth inning, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Kansas City Royals 14-8 Friday night for their third straight victory.
Baltimore trailed 6-4 in the eighth before a double, an error and an infield hit loaded the bases for Reimold, who lined a 2-0 pitch from Kelvin Herrera (4-3) high off the left-field foul pole.
Manny Machado followed with a solo shot off Franklin Morales. After Adam Jones singled, Morales hit slugger Chris Davis in the back with a pitch. Davis slammed down his bat, breaking it in two, as Orioles manager Buck Showalter sprinted out of the dugout.
No one else emerged from the either dugout during the potentially volatile situation, although Davis glared at Morales while taking his base. Showalter, meanwhile, was ejected from the game for arguing.
Morales lasted one more batter before being replaced by Joba Chamberlain, who yielded Clevenger's slam. Clevenger entered the game earlier in the inning as a pinch hitter.
