The Baltimore Orioles evidently figure if they're going to work overtime, they might as well make the most of it.
Matt Wieters hit a grand slam in the bottom of the 10th inning and Baltimore withstood four solo homers by the Tampa Bay Rays in a 10-6 victory Thursday night.
Nolan Reimold and Steve Pearce also homered for the Orioles, who have won 17 straight in extra innings, including 16 last season. It's the longest such streak since the Pittsburgh Pirates won 21 in a row from June 1959 to July 1960.
''It's huge for us to get the feel for it, how we did it last year,'' third baseman Manny Machado said.
Nick Markakis led off the 10th with a single against Jamey Wright (0-1). Brandon Gomes came in to face Machado, who reached on a bunt single that hugged the first base line. Adam Jones followed with a long single to the warning track that eluded right fielder Ben Zobrist, but Markakis held up initially and could only make it to third.
