CHICAGO, April 17 (UPI) -- Matt Wieters socked two homers Monday, including a 10th-inning grand slam, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied late to stun the Chicago White Sox 10-4.

Trailing 4-2 in the ninth, the Orioles got a lead-off homer from Nolan Reimold and a two-out solo shot from Adam Jones off closer Hector Santiago to tie the score. Baltimore erupted for six runs in the 10th, highlighted by Wieters' bases-loaded shot off Zach Stewart (0-1).

Five of the 10th-inning runs were unearned, following an error by center fielder Alejandro De Aza, who misjudged Mark Reynolds' deep fly ball to lead off the frame.

Wieters finished 3-for-4 with five runs batted in while Chris Davis added three hits and an RBI in the comeback.

Pedro Strop (1-1) earned the win after tossing two scoreless innings.

A.J. Pierzynski went 3-for-3 with a solo homer and Paul Konerko drove in a pair of runs for the White Sox, who dropped the opener of a four-game series.
