BALTIMORE (AP) Jonathan Schoop hit two home runs, including a grand slam, and the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Detroit Tigers 9-3 Saturday night to stretch their winning streak to seven games.
Matt Wieters and Adam Jones also homered for the Orioles, who will seek to complete a four-game sweep Sunday.
Schoop hit a solo shot in the seventh and his second career slam in the eighth to finish with a career-high five RBIs.
Rookie Mike Wright (2-3) gave up two runs and three hits over seven innings. He struck out six and walked three.
Miguel Cabrera homered for the Tigers, who have lost 11 of 12. Cabrera's two-run homer in the sixth ended Detroit's run of 17 straight scoreless innings.
