BALTIMORE, April 18 (UPI) -- Matt Wieters finished off a night of offense Thursday with a grand slam in the 10th inning that gave Baltimore a 10-6 win over Tampa Bay.
The homer by Weiters was the seventh of the game, blasts that accounted for 12 of the 16 runs. The teams combined for 25 hits.
Manny Machado then reached on a bunt single and Adam Jones singled to load the bases. That brought up Weiters, who hit the first pitch he saw from Gomes over the wall in right.
That made a winner out of Tony Patton (1-0), who worked his way out of a jam in the top of the 10th to keep the game tied.
