Davis slam carries Orioles past Twins 9-1

BALTIMORE (AP) Chris Davis hit his fourth career grand slam and the Baltimore Orioles got a dominating pitching performance from Miguel Gonzalez in a 9-1 victory over the skidding Minnesota Twins on Friday night.

Delmon Young also homered for the AL East-leading Orioles, who built an 8-0 lead in the fifth inning against rookie Trevor May (0-4).

Baltimore's fourth win in five games was marred by an injury to first baseman Steve Pearce, who left with a right abdominal strain. The severity of the injury was not immediately apparent, but a prolonged absence would be a blow to a team that's already lost third baseman Manny Machado for the season.
