Chris Davis granted grand slam after review as Orioles handle Rays

Updated: Wednesday, June 18 2014, 12:07 AM EDT

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Chris Davis hit a replay-delayed grand slam and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-5 on Tuesday night.


Davis was awarded a slam off Erik Bedard (3-5) during a five-run third-inning after a video review showed his drive struck the foul pole. He reached second base on an opposite-field shot down the left-field line. The review that lasted 1 minute, 18 seconds revealed the ball hit the pole a few feet above the wall, and Davis was given a home run.


The Orioles also got a two-run homer from Steve Pearce.


Sean Rodriguez and Desmond Jennings homered for Tampa Bay, which is 5-16 in its last 21 games.


The Rays pulled within 5-2 in the bottom of the third when Rodriguez and Jennings hit consecutive solo homers off Miguel Gonzalez (4-4). Jennings has four homers in 22 at-bats against the Baltimore right-hander.


Tampa Bay made it 5-4 on James Loney's two-run double during the fifth.


Baltimore went ahead 7-4 on Pearce's two-run drive in the seventh. Tampa Bay got one run back on Yunel Escobar's eighth-inning sacrifice fly.


Gonzalez, activated from the 15-day disabled list before the game, allowed four runs and eight hits in five innings. He had been out since May 31 due to a strained right oblique.


Zach Britton pitched the ninth for his eighth save.


Bedard gave up five runs and four hits over four-plus innings.
