Tigers hit 4 HRs in 8-run 4th, beat Orioles 10-3
BALTIMORE (AP) — Miguel Cabrera's grand slam capped a wild fourth inning in which Detroit hit four home runs and Orioles pitcher Jason Hammel was ejected, and the Tigers beat Baltimore 10-3 Saturday to snap a four-game losing streak.
Prince Fielder hit a sixth-inning drive for the Tigers, whose five homers were a season high.
Justin Verlander (7-4) allowed three runs and eight hits in seven innings to win his third straight start and improve to 8-0 lifetime against Baltimore. But his performance was secondary to that of the Detroit offense, which used an eight-run fourth to take a 9-1 lead.
It was the first time the Orioles have ever given up four homers in an inning, according to STATS, Inc. Detroit had not hit four home runs in an inning since Sept. 10, 1986.
