BALTIMORE, June 1 (UPI) -- Miguel Cabrera cracked a grand slam Saturday, one of four homers launched by the Detroit Tigers in the fourth inning of their 10-3 victory over Baltimore.

The score was tied 1-1 in the fourth when the Tigers exploded for eight runs, including back-to-back-back solo shots in addition to Cabrera's slam.

Victor Martinez, Jhonny Peralta and Alex Avila went deep in successive at-bats against Orioles starter Jason Hammel, who was chased after hitting Matt Tuiasosopo with a pitch.

T.J. McFarland relieved but the Tigers' onslaught continued as Avisail Garcia singled and Omar Infante followed with an RBI double for a 5-1 lead.

Andy Dirks drew a walk to load the bases and Cabrera then belted a 3-2 pitch into the left-field stands for his 17th round-tripper of the season.

Tuiasosopo went 2-for-3 with a fifth homer for Detroit as the Tigers broke a four-game skid.

Justin Verlander (7-3) notched the victory, yielding three runs on eight hits over seven innings. The Tigers ace walked one and struck out five.

Hammel (7-3) was lit up for five runs on five hits over three full innings.

J.J. Hardy pounded two solo homers for the Orioles.
