Grand slam helps Orioles beat White Sox 10-6
(CHICAGO) – The Baltimore Orioles kept insisting they would turn things around and break out of their slump. Maybe this is a start. Welington Castillo hit his first career grand slam and drove in a personal-best five runs, and the Orioles snapped a six-game losing streak with a rain-delayed 10-6 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday night. Castillo gave the Orioles an 8-5 lead with his drive against Miguel Gonzalez (4-8) in the fifth inning and helped prevent them from matching their longest slide of the season. Baltimore also evened its record at 32-32 after falling below .500 for the first time since Oct. 3, 2015. Things weren't looking good for them early on, after Matt Davidson homered in his third straight game to help Chicago grab a 5-1 lead. But the Orioles turned this one around, pounding out 13 hits and overcoming two errors on the way to a lopsided victory. Trey Mancini had a double and two singles. He scored three runs and drove in one. Mark Trumbo added two hits and two runs, and a shaky Dylan Bundy (7-5) got the support he needed. The right-hander picked up the win after going 1-4 in his previous six starts. He gave up five runs and six hits in five innings. Gonzalez got pounded for eight runs and nine hits over five innings. The right-hander is 1-8 in his past nine starts. Chicago's Alen Hanson hit his first career homer in the ninth, but the Orioles got the win they needed.
