BALTIMORE, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- A grand slam by Nate McLouth in the sixth inning gave Baltimore some breathing room Friday and the Orioles went on to outslug Seattle 11-8.

There were six home runs in the game, one of them being the 40th of the year for Baltimore's Chris Davis.

The Orioles, who have won three out of four, had a 7-6 lead heading into the bottom of the sixth. Baltimore, however, loaded the bases on consecutive singles by J.J. Hardy, Henry Urrutia and Ryan Flaherty to open the inning.

McLouth followed with his home run to right that opened a five-run cushion.

Chris Tillman (14-3) picked up the win despite giving up six runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings. He has captured four starts in a row.

Michael Saunders hit a two-run home run for the Mariners in the third and they also came up with solo blasts from Humberto Quintero, Kendrys Morales and Michael Morse.

Aaron Harang (5-10) allowed seven runs on seven hits while working five innings to take the loss. It was the fourth straight setback for Seattle.
